Brad Pitt appeared visibly moved as he accepted his first acting Oscar. The actor, who previously won for producing 12 Years a Slave in 2013, was honored in the best supporting actor category for his portrayal of stunt double Cliff Booth in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. After thanking the Academy for the "honor of honors," Pitt praised the film's director, Quentin Tarantino, and his costar, Leonardo DiCaprio. "Leo, I'll ride on your coattails any day, man," he said. "The view is fantastic."

"The view is fantastic."

Pitt then proceeded to reflect on going to the movies with his parents as a child, as well as all the "wonderful people" he's met throughout his prolific career. He sweetly added, "Once upon a time in Hollywood — ain't that the truth?" Pitt ended his speech with a heartwarming mention of his six children. "This is for my kids, who color everything I do," he said. "I adore you."
