LOS ANGELES — Brad Pitt finally has an Academy Award for acting to add to his shelf.
According to The Associated Press, the “Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood” star won the best supporting actor Oscar for his role in the film. Other nominees in the category included fellow Hollywood veterans Al Pacino, Tom Hanks, Joe Pesci and Anthony Hopkins.
Pitt, who also has a best picture Oscar for his work as a producer on the 2013 film “12 Years a Slave,” started off his acceptance speech Sunday with a jab at last week’s impeachment hearings.
“They told me I only have 45 seconds up here, which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week,” Pitt began.
He then praised “Once Upon a Time” director Quentin Tarantino and co-star Leonardo DiCaprio before giving a shout-out to his children.
“This is for my kids, who color everything I do,” Pitt said. “I adore you.”
