Brad Pitt won the first Oscar of the night and immediately made it “political” making a snide reference to Trump’s impeachment trial.
Pitt said “They told me I only have 45 seconds up here, which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week.”
USA Today reports Pitt took home the first award of the night. “Wow,” he said, “This is really incredible.”
He got a little political, saying the 45 seconds he had for his acceptance speech was 45 more seconds than John Bolton had to speak at President Trump’s impeachment trial.
He thanked writer/director Quentin Tarantino and co-star Leonardo DiCaprio, telling Leo he’d “ride on your coattails any day.” Pitt gave a shout out to stunt crews, adding, “Once Upon A Time in Hollywood, ain’t that the truth?” Pitt ended his speech by dedicating the win to his kids, “I adore you.”
