Oscars 2020: Brad Pitt takes a jibe at US Senate on Bolton’s testimony in acceptance speech

HOLLYWOOD: Brad Pitt, who won best supporting actor Acadamy Award for his recent film 'Once Upon a Time in Hollywood', stole the limelight with his soft and hard tune during his acceptance speech.

The award winning actor said:  "They said I have 45 seconds,”  quipping about the time he was given for speech with a jibe at the US Senate, “Which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week."

Pitt's speech took a political turn as he referred to the Republican-controlled Senate that had refused to hear testimony from Trump’s former national security adviser, who could have given a first-hand account of the US presidents’s alleged bribery scheme with Ukraine. Bolton had previously called it a “drug deal,” that he said he didn’t want any part of.
