Hello!  I am so excited to be joining the Simply Brad team!  After deliberating we have decided to move into the social media world, and that is where I come in.  With the amount of time it takes to run this site, there is no way Josan could add that to her plate, so I have come aboard to help out.  I will be helping out a little with the site, but my main role will be as Social Media Manager.  That sounds more important and fancy than it really is, but it will be a super fun job and I can’t wait to get started!

Golden Globes: Brad Pitt Thanks “All-Star” Co-Star Leonardo DiCaprio in Best Supporting Actor Speech

Brad Pitt on Sunday night nabbed the Golden Globe for his work on Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

In the Quentin Tarantino-directed film, Pitt plays Cliff Booth, the skilled stuntman and best friend of Leonard DiCaprio’s Rick Dalton. The film sees the actor fighting against Mike Moh’s Bruce Lee and taking on the Charles Manson girls.

But while Pitt was thrilled to receive the honor, he acknowledged his fellow nominees, thanking them for inspiring him. “When I was starting out these names — Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, Tom Hanks and Anthony Hopkins — were like gods to me,” he told the Beverly Hilton audience. “This is an honor in itself.”

The actor then went on to thank DiCaprio. “Before The Revenant, I used to watch, year after year, his co-stars accept awards, get up and thank him profusely,” Pitt said. “I know why — he’s an all-star, he’s a gent and I wouldn’t be here without you.”

He also took the time to make a Titanic joke, telling the fellow actor, “I would’ve shared the raft.”

Pitt brought his speech to an end encouraging attendees to be kind. “If you have the chance to be kind to someone tomorrow, take it,” he said. “I think we need it.”

Pitt’s win on Sunday marked his second Golden Globe nod, following his win in the same category for 1995’s Twelve Monkeys.

The annual awards show saw Ricky Gervais return as host and aired on NBC.
