The prestigious awards ceremony in the history of Hollywood cinema, The Academy Awards aka Oscars 2020 finally commenced with much fanfare and excitement on Sunday night. During the awards ceremony, Brad Pitt bagged his first Academy Award for acting in the category of Best Supporting Actor for Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. The actor, in his speech, went the political way by mentioning the Senate Republic. He further went on to call Quentin Tarantino 'the original' and 'one of a kind'. Brad went on to add that without Quentin, the film industry would have been a drier place. He expressed gratitude towards his Once Upon A Time In Hollywood co-star Leonardo DiCaprio. He thanked his kids for the achievement too.
"They told me that I only had 45 seconds up here, which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week. I’m thinking maybe Quentin does a movie about it, and in the end the adults do the right thing. This really is about Quentin Jerome Tarantino. 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'. 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. I was just really disappointed with this week. I think when gamesmanship trumps doing the right thing, it’s a sad day. I don’t think we should let it slide, and I’m really serious about that," Brad told in his speech.
