If you had “John Bolton” on your Oscars bingo card, Sunday was your night. Brad Pitt claimed the first trophy at the ceremony, and the first words out of his mouth were a dig at the GOP.
Accepting a much-deserved Best Supporting Actor award for his role in “Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood,” Pitt immediately turned to the impeachment trial.
“They told me I only have 45 seconds up here,” said Pitt, “which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week.”
Invoking his director, Bitt continued: “I’m thinking maybe Quentin [Tarantino] does a movie about it. In the end, the adults do the right thing.”
As the first presidential election year Oscars since 2016, the ceremony was bound to get political. Pitt made sure they wasted no time in getting down to business.
