MALE ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE

BRAD PITT

BRAD PITT: I gotta add this to my Tinder

profile.

Thank you, my brothers, my sisters. This means

so much. More than I can possibly fathom. I want you

to know I watch everything. I watch you all. And the

work has been mesmerizing, so I thank you.

I want to thank my costars, Leo, Margot Robbie,

Margot Robbie's feet, Margaret Qualley's feet, Dakota

Fanning's feet. Seriously. Quentin has separated more

women from their shoes than the TSA.

Now, we all know what we do is a team sport,

and we elevate each other, and I've got to work with

some amazing, amazing people. Mr. Pacino, Mr. Dern,

Kurt Russell, Leo, Dakota, Tim -- wait, where are you

guys, Ms. Butters, a bunch of the new generation,

Margaret Qualley, Austin Butler. Anyway, you all

elevated my game, I certainly hope I did the same for

you.

Let's be honest, it was a difficult part. A

guy who gets high, takes his shirt off and doesn't get

along with his wife. It was a big stretch. Big.

Listen. I love our community. I love our

community so much. It's been amazing to me. Each -- I

met so many amazing people along the way. Each of us in

this room, you know, we know pain, we know loneliness,

we bring that to the screen. We know moments of grace,

we've had moments of wisdom, we bring that to the

screen. We've all had a laugh at our ridiculousness,

and we know funny, and we bring that to the screen. And

God damn, I think that's a worthy endeavor.

I've been banging away at this thing for

30 years. I think the simple math is some projects work

and some don't, and there's no reason to belabor either

one. Just get on to the next, and keep telling stories.

Thank you for this. My love and respect.

Enjoy the evening because tomorrow it's back to work.
