Brad Pitt won the best supporting actor Oscar
The 92nd Academy Awards ceremony, presented by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), honored the best films of 2019. It took place yesterday (9th February) at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California.
Brad Pitt won the best supporting actor Oscar for his role as Cliff Booth in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. His competition in the category was from Al Pacino and Joe Pesci for The Irishman, Tom Hanks for A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood and Anthony Hopkins for The Two Popes.
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is directed by Quentin Tarantino. In the movie Pitt’s character Booth is the easygoing stunt double for fading star Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio); Booth also encounters the notorious Manson “family” who are living outside Los Angeles at the Spahn Ranch, a former filming location.
Pitt began his acceptance speech with the words: “They told me I only have 45 seconds up here,” said Pitt, “… which is 45 seconds more than the senate gave John Bolton this week.” - a reference to the impeachment trial of Donald Trump and its blocking of John Bolton’s testimony.
This is Pitt's first Oscar for acting, but he has already won several prizes for the role - best supporting actor at the Baftas, Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild. However, his work as a producer brought him a best picture Oscar for 12 Years a Slave and best picture nominations for Moneyball and The Big Short.
