Brad Pitt flays US Senate on Bolton’s testimony in acceptance speech at Oscars 2020

Monitoring Desk

HOLLYWOOD: Brad Pitt, who won the Best Supporting Actor award for his role in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, stole the limelight with his soft and hard tune during his acceptance speech.

Taking a jibe at the US Senate, the award winning actor said: “They said I have 45 seconds,” while mentioning the time he got for his acceptance speech, Pitt said, “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.
