Brad Pitt just won the Oscar for the best supporting actor on Sunday. Directed by Quentin Tarantino, in the movie, ‘Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood’, Pitt portrays the role of stuntman Cliff Booth.
It is Brad Pitt’s first-ever acting Oscar. Before this, the actor, 56, won the Oscar in 2013, as a producer of “12 Years a Slave.”
Brad Pitt’s Eye Raising Thank You Speech
Well, what can we say, once the movie was on the theatres, many critics and public predicted the win. But what we could not predict was his speech.
Yes, you heard it. No one thought that Pitt’s speech would be the center of the attention, rather than his win.
Just look at what Brad said for yourself.
“They told me I only had 45 seconds up here, which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week.”
The recent Oscar winner then added,
” I’m thinking maybe Quentin does a movie about it and in the end, the adults do the right thing.”

Furthermore, Pitt closed the speech by mentioning his beautiful children.
“All the wonderful people I’ve met along the way, to stand here now, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Ain’t that the truth. This is for my kids, who color everything I do. I adore you.”
