Brad Pitt, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”
BRAD PITT: Holy moly. Thank you. Thank you so much. Thank you to the eclectic and ever raucous Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
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; wherever you are, Tony, you know I love you ‑‑ were like gods to me. This is an honor in itself. And all my respect. All my respect, sincerely.
I have to start by thanking the man himself, Mr. Quentin Tarantino ‑‑
‑‑ the man, the myth, the legend, for this experience, for the film, one I’ll never forget. I thank you, my brother. I really appreciate it. I also have to thank my partner in crime, LDC.
You know, when ‑‑ before “The Remnant,” I used to watch, year after year, his co-stars accept awards and get up and thank him profusely. I know why. He’s an all‑star. He’s a gent. And I wouldn’t be here without you, man. I thank you.
Still, I would have shared the raft.
Oh, man. There’s so many names, so many people I want to thank from this film who all gave their very best. I’m going to say thank you ‑‑ I’m going squeeze it down to our producers, Shannon McIntosh, David Heyman. I want to thank Tom Rothman for his big balls, taking on this film, the Sony machine. I have some people I love who have been my friends for decades: Cynthia Pett, Jeannie Black, Brian Lould, John Leedman, who is not here. And I want to say hi to my folks because, hey ‑‑
They’re back in the Ozarks. I wanted to bring my mom, but I couldn’t because any woman I stand next to, they say I’m dating them.
Just be awkward.
All right. Thank you. Hey, if you see a chance to be kind to someone, take it. I think we need it.
