Brad Pitt Wins His First Acting Oscar

Brad Pitt’s first acting Oscar is finally here. At Sunday night’s Academy Awards, the movie star picked up the Oscar for best supporting actor thanks to Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood. In his acceptance speech, Pitt got political, paid tribute to Tarantino, Hollywood’s stunt community, and, most importantly, his children.

Pitt opened his speech with a political remark, noting that he only had 45 seconds to deliver his speech, which is “45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week.”

“They told me that I only had 45 seconds up here, which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week,” Pitt said, before urging director Quentin Tarantino to make a film on the impeachment saga. “I’m thinking maybe Quentin does a movie about it, and in the end the adults do the right thing.” “I’m thinking maybe Quentin does a movie about it, and in the end the adults do the right thing.”

Pitt then dedicated his award to the Once Upon a Time in Hollywood filmmaker.
“This really is about Quentin Jerome Tarantino,” he said. “You are original, you are one of a kind. The film industry really would be a much drier place without you and I love the ethos you gave Cliff Booth, ‘look for the best in people, expect the worst, but look for the best.’”
He also thanked the film’s crew and his co-stars including, Leonardo DiCaprio.

“Leo, I’ll ride on your coattails any day man. The view is fantastic… I also want to say, while we’re doing all of this, I think it’s time that we give a little love to our stunt coordinators and our stunt crews.”

“This is for my kids, who color everything I do,” he said. “I adore you.”
