LOS ANGELES — Brad Pitt has been the picture of appreciation and wisecracks during his many award season speeches.

But at the Oscars, Pitt surprisingly veered into politics during his best supporting actor acceptance speech for “Once Upon a Time In Hollywood.”

“They told me I only have 45 seconds up here, which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week,” said Pitt, referencing the former national security adviser who was not allowed to testify by the Senate during the proceedings that acquitted President Trump.

Pitt, 56, joked that his “Hollywood” director Quentin Tarantino might do a feature on the controversial hearings.

“I’m thinking maybe Quentin does a movie about it and in the end, the adults do the right thing,” said Pitt.

Backstage Pitt added that he was dead serious about his criticism of the Senate proceedings and wanted to shine a light on it at the Oscars.

“I was really disappointed with that this week,” said Pitt. “When gamesmanship trumps the right thing it’s a sad thing. And I don’t think we should let it slide. And I’m very serious about that.”

Pitt also explained that he is not entirely comfortable speaking in front of crowds. So he was worked especially hard on his speeches during awards season. But he insisted the words were his, he didn’t hire a writer.

“I put some real work into it. And tried to get comfortable,” said Pitt. “But it’s definitely me. It’s got to come from the heart. I have some funny friends.”

Nailing the speeches were one of his biggest triumphs of the award season. “For me it was just about getting cozy in front of a mass of people. I know that’s antithetical to my chosen profession,” said Pitt. “But it’s not necessarily my thing.”
