WINS HIS FIRST EVER ACTING AWARD

Many have often wondered why an actor of Brad Pitt’s caliber hasn’t won any major acting awards. Because the dude is simply great and his latest effort in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood shows that age hasn’t slowed him down in any way.

Despite being in the film in a supporting role, Pitt’s acting talent, charm, effortless swagger, and screen charisma just make him nothing less than eye-candy.

Well, thank God that finally the actor has been rewarded as he accepted the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on Sunday.

The 56-year-old beat out fellow nominees , Al Pacino, Tom Hanks, and Anthony Hopkins to clinch the award.
