The 92nd Annual Academy Awards was hosted this last Sunday, and while the viewership and ratings took a hit, and some fans are… An interesting level of angry.
One thing was mutually agreed upon. Brad Pitt well deserved recognition for his amazing performance in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
While it seems that Pitt was more than happy to finally receive his due recognition, he also made a somewhat surprising announcement.
He took his stage opportunity to make many statements, it was his backstage statement that is most likely going to be the most dissected.
While backstage and asked about how it felt to finally get his Academy Award Pitt had this to say; “I hope not. I hope I got other shit going on. But it has been a really special, really special run. And again, it’s a community I love, and friends that I’ve made over 30 years mean a lot to me, truly. I feel a responsibility to that more than anything, more than, like, a victory lap. Right now I think it’s time to go disappear for a little while now, and get back to making things.”
There’s quite a few different ways to interpret what this means. While Pitt is mostly known to the casual fans for his acting in films like Inglorious Basterds and Fury.
Odds Are He Isn’t Done. But We Wouldn’t Mind a Few More Producer Roles!
He is also well recognized for his producing roles in films like 12 Years a Slave.
So taking this statement at face value, it seems that Pitt is wanting to go back to the director and producer chair as opposed to acting.
Quite frankly, if they maintain the same pedigree of quality seen in his previous works, this is probably a great idea for the actor.
One thing is for sure, we will keep watching his work!
