Last night at the Golden Globes, Brad Pitt walked home with the prestigious award for the Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture for his role in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. And since he was up for the honor alongside a number of other notable names, winning must have felt particularly nice.
As you may know, he had some serious competition since names such as Anthony Hopkins, Tom Hanks, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci were also nominated in the same category.
That being said, he did not hesitate to talk about this during his acceptance speech, saying that: ‘You know, when I was starting out, these names that were just listed—Pacino, Pesci, Hanks and, my de facto mentor from afar Sir Tony Hopkins…were like gods to me and this is an honor in itself. All my respect, sincerely.’
This is not the first time Brad receives this award, however.
He also won back in 1996 for his role in 12 Monkeys.
Brad proceeded to thank his co-star, Leonardo DiCaprio, and the movie’s director, Quentin Tarantino, before he went on to also celebrate none other than his mother!
He went on to joke about the reason why she as well as his dad were not able to attend the awards show.
‘I wanted to bring my mom, but I couldn’t. ‘Cause, any woman I stand next to they say I’m dating. It would just be awkward,’ he told the audience.
In reality, his parents were just in the Ozarks at the time and could not make it.
But, of course, he is not wrong about the dating rumors as they have been following him ever since his split from Angelina Jolie.
To make matters worse, not one but three of his exes were also at the Golden Globes last night!
