Brad Pitt wins first Academy Award for acting

The 92nd annual Academy Awards brings to a close yet another awards season, one in which the main acting categories are led by performers who’ve run roughshod over their competition in the annual trophy race. But we’re here to bring you all the excitement of the biggest night for movies. 

For the top prize, best picture, Sam Mendes’ World War I thriller “1917” is the closest there is to a favorite, having won important Golden Globe, Producers Guild and Directors Guild awards. But Bong Joon-ho’s South Korean black comedy “Parasite,” which took the best ensemble award at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, is vying vies to be the first foreign-language film to win.

Here’s a minute by minute rundown of all the awards, and the action onstage at the Dolby Theatre (in EST).

8:28: Idina Menzel hits the stage to perform “Into the Unknown,” a nominee for original song, with other Elsa singers from around the world.

8:24: “Toy Story 4” wins best animated feature, and animated short goes to “Hair Love.” Director Matthew A. Cherry says his short was done “because we wanted to see more representation in animation.” He dedicated the Oscar to the late NBA star Kobe Bryant: “May we all have a second act as great as his was.”

Brad Pitt accepts the award for best performance by an actor in a supporting role for "Once upon a Hollywood."

8:14: The first award of the night, supporting actor, goes to Brad Pitt for Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.” It’s his first acting Oscar. “Wow,” he says, “This is really incredible. Thank you, Academy, for this honor of honors.” He gets a little political, saying his 45 seconds is 45 seconds more than John Bolton had to speak at President Trump’s impeachment trial. “I’m thinking Quentin does a movie about it and in the end, the adults do the right thing.” Pitt also shouts out stunt coordinators and say he’s been “gobsmacked” by thinking about his career “to stand here. Once upon in Hollywood? Ain’t that the truth.”

8:06: Steve Martin and Chris Rock come out to do a bit. Martin asks why the Oscars don’t have a host anymore and Rock quips, “Twitter.” Martin points out Brad Pitt and jokes, “It’s like looking in a mirror.” And Rock mentions Mahershala Ali is here and has won two Oscars: “You know what that means when the cops pull him over? Nothing.” The twosome jokes about Jeff Bezos, Joker and the female director snubs. “Do you know what was missing from this year’s Oscars?” Martin says, and Rock responds, “Vaginas.”
