After 30 years of acting, Brad Pitt won his second Oscar in its 92nd annual ceremony on Sunday for Best Supporting Actor for his role as Cliff Booth in “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.”
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood gained great attention in 2019 all over the world. It premiered at the Cannes Film Festival on May 21, 2019, received 10 nominations, and earned $374 million worldwide. Additionally, it gained universal praise from critics in regards to acting, cinematography, soundtrack, screenplay, direction, production, and costume design.
This was Pitt’s second Oscar, as he had previously won Best Motion Picture of the year in 2014 for the movie,“12 Years a Slave”.
Pitt claims that his Oscar made him nostalgic about many remarkable memories in his life; he remembered his parents taking him to a drive-in to see Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, and How Geena Davis and Ridley Scott gave him his first shot.
“To all the wonderful people I met along the way to stand here now,” He said.
He also thanked all the cast and crew, especially the director, Quentin Tarantino.
“This really is about Quentin Jerome Tarantino. You are original, you are one of a kind. The film industry would be a much drier place without you, and I love the ethos you gave Cliff Booth” Pitt said.
He also thanked all his family, “This is for my kids, who color everything I do. I adore you.”
And in the press room, Pitt was asked in an interview if he would allow his children to follow his footsteps as actors later on; he said that he would allow them to achieve what they are really passionate about.
“I want them to follow their bliss, follow their passions, whatever they’re most interested in. It’s about guiding as you can, but they get to try everything on and try what their passion is. So sure, why not?” Pitt said.
Brad Pitt, where success, nostalgia, emotions, and sense of humor are all found.
Without a doubt, he deserved to be one of the winners.
