Brad Pitt’s recent projects, ‘Once Upon A Time in Hollywood’ and ‘Ad Astra’ have amazing plotlines. His performances in both of these movies are expected to get him nominated for the 92nd Academy Awards.
In ‘Once Upon A Time in Hollywood’ directed by Quentin Tarantino, Pitt played the role of Cliff Booth. Booth is a World War II veteran, who is Rick Dalton’s best friend and stunt double. For this role, Pitt could be nominated for Best Supporting Actor.
While his upcoming movie ‘Ad Astra’ could potentially get him nominated for Best Actor. His role in ‘Ad Astra’ is quite unique. He plays the role of an astronaut named Roy McBride. McBride travels to the far reaches of the solar system in search of his father while also unraveling a mystery that threatens our existence on Earth. The movie is set to be released on the 20th of September.
Brad Pitt opened up about his forgoing campaigning for the Oscars. He said,
“OH, MAN. I’M GONNA ABSTAIN. I MEAN, YOU NEVER KNOW, AND IT’S REALLY NICE WHEN YOUR NUMBER COMES UP. BUT THE GOAL IS FOR THE FILM TO LAND, TO SPEAK TO SOMEONE WHETHER IT’S NOW OR A DECADE FROM NOW.” “I FIND CHASING IT ACTUALLY A DISSERVICE TO THE PURITY OF YOUR TELLING A STORY, AND A SHAKLING THING TO FOCUS ON.”
