Brad Pitt is having one helluva year at the movies. The actor has starred in two movies, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood and Ad Astra. While Once Upon A Time In Hollywood received standing ovation at Cannes 2019, Ad Astra is also making the right noise at the Venice Film Festival. In OUATIH, the actor shined beside Leonardo DiCaprio whereas in Ad Astra, he is seen playing an astronaut venturing into the outer space to find his father. Both the movies have critics lauding Pitt with praises.
His performance has also led to an Oscar buzz generation. It wouldn’t be surprising to see Pitt nominated for the Academy Awards 2020. While we are keeping our fingers crossed, Pitt recently reacted to the Oscar buzz generated surrounding his roles. Taking the centre stage at the Venice Film Festival, he said that it would be great fun, whether or not he wins an Academy or not.
“Every year, I see amazing talent getting acknowledged and amazing talent not getting acknowledged,” he noted. “And my feeling is when your number comes up, it’s great fun, and when someone else’s number comes up it’s usually a friend, so it’s great fun still,” he said, as reported by ET Canada.
Pitt is a three-time Academy Award nominee. The actor was nominated for Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role in 12 Monkeys. The actor was nominated for Academy Award for Best Actor for his brilliant The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Money Ball. Pitt hasn’t won an Oscar yet. Given the buzz surrounding the two movies, we hope he takes home the golden trophy next year. Stay tuned to Pinkvilla for more updates.
