Pitt Wins Top Venice Award

Pitt Wins Top Venice Award

Brad Pitt scooped up the Best Actor award at the Venice Film Festival for his role as America’s most notorious outlaw in The Assassination of Jesse James by The Coward Robert Ford.

“I was stunned,” Brad said. “My first reaction was, ‘Huh?’ I did not expect it. It’s a great honor. I am honored to be part of the list of actors who won this award. I’m still processing this.” Congratulations, Mr. Bradley!

Pitt‘s Babel co-star Cate Blanchett also picked up best actress for her role in the biopic of Bob Dylan, I’m Not There. Both Brad and Cate couldn’t make it to the awards ceremony.

Ang Lee‘s Lust, Caution won the Golden Lion for best film, just two years after winning with Brokeback Mountain.

Put on your dancing shoes, it’s time to party!

Pictures below include Angelina Jolie picking up son Maddox, 6, from his French school in NYC’s Upper East Side on Friday afternoon.

    CONGRATULATIONS BRAD PITT. YOU EARNED IT!! I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE THE MOVIE AND BUY THE DVD. THE MOVIE WILL BE SHOWING HERE IN AUSTIN, TEXAS ON SEPT. 21st. YAY!!

    CHEERS TO ALL THE BAMPZS!

  • KATYA

    WOW — kudos to Brad, Cate AND Ang Lee (I’m sure Tony Leung gets a lot of credit for that win!} “Lust, Caution” is coming in at NC-17 — should be very, very hot!

    36 Help : 09/08/2007 at 3:46 pm

    Pitt and especially Casey Affleck who plays the coward Ford, give
    Oscar-worthy performances although both seemed slightly uncomfortable about the accolades offered them at a jammed Four Seasons Hotel Saturday before the screening.
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    what this means?
    ———————————————–
    It means neither really want all the attention they are being given by the press. I suppose they would much rather have the attention on the film in its entirety…everyone who participated, not just them.

  • Help

    Thanks :)

  • originaltruth

    Congratulations, Brad!!!

  • the real tita

    Ang Lee’s movie had real sex scenes in it that’s why it won. AOJJ was robbed!

    Anyway, congrats Brad. So nice to be recognized at last!

  • GOOD KARMA

    He is a great actor, I hope he wins more awards.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    EEEEEWWWWW!!!!! That’s not true — I hate it when people say that about AJ and Banderas. It’s not fair to Tang Wei and Tony Leung to make that statement. It took 12 days on a closed set to film the sex scenes in “Lust, Caution.” If it was real as you say — why so long?

    Brad and Angie, you should keep doing your thing – box office or no box office. Continue doing good quality and meaningful films like AMH. I hope AMH does extremely well overseas. We need such films.

    Thanks Missouri Fan, I love that movie she and Ryan Phillipe were great in it.

  • Kira

    As a parent of an adult student, I’m pleased to see them settling down with these children and the eldest being enrolled in a private school.

    What perplexes me, however, is how did the paparazzi in a city the size of New York know this child was attending this particular school (as all cameras are setup and ready to roll) and that was Maddox’ first day of attendance?

    Obviously, even Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have publicists who release private information on their underage children for publicity for themselves….shame on them! It’s one thing for actors to be media whores for themselves but the children need to be protected from the paparazzi and not appear on magazine covers even for philanthropic contributions!

    LMAO! Since it’s well documented that Maddox goes to these schools wherever they are. NOLA and Prague, even I think that the paps can put two and two together and get that he’ll be attending the one in NYC and find out when the first day starts. Just because you’re not that bright, doesn’t mean the paps/press aren’t.

    But, you get on with your outraged bad self.

    Congrats to Cate Blanchett! Brad probably slept with the judges, of course.

  • TO THE MEDIA

    AMERICAN MEDIA, LET BRAD AND ANGIE BE ALL THEY CAN BE. STOP PUTTING PEOPLE IN BOXES. THEY’VE DONE WELL TOGETHER AS A COUPLE THAN ANY OTHER COUPLE IN HOLLYWOOD. IT’S TIME TO GIVE THEM THE CREDIT AND LET THEM BE. ENOUGH WITH THE FALSE REPORT.

    What you think of my soothing flower garden video?

  • Nisha, the original

    #81 – Angie and the kids were in NOLA with Brad a few weeks ago. There were no pics, but they were there. There’s a recent article saying that Brad took Madox to a local shop for snow cones during the visit for Global Green. Just because you don’t see it, doesn’t mean it didn’t happen.

    BTW, can you please stop the fake mispronunciation and bad grammar?

    ONE PICTURE does not tell the entire story specifically when you have no idea when that picture was taken. You don’t know when Brad and company arrived from NY and you don’t know where Angelina is at this moment. The folks who believe she COULD be there are basing that off the interview Brad gave the press corp and the interviewers mention of her being there. I’d go with him sooner than you but that’s too logical.

    And with that I’m done responding to you LMAO. For your sake, I hope Angelina is in NY cause’ I think you’d have a conniption if she showed up tonight with Brad.

    72 Kira : 09/08/2007 at 4:15 pm

    This is the same school Maddox attended in NOLA and in Prague, just the NYC location. These schools are located all over the world and follow the same school calendar and teach the same lessons with little deviation from what is taught in schools in France. Many children of diplomats attend these schools.

    Anyone who has a brain who knew that Maddox was in Lycees in both NOLA and Prague knew that they would enroll Maddox in the same school for the continuity of his education. No publicist put out any info. Paps are very wily and good at ferreting out info and know where to stalk their prey.

  • Nisha, the original

    #89 – Funny you should mention Paul Newman. Paul Newman who fell in love with Joanne during their filming and left his wife for her.

    How ironic!

    Hi MF—thanks for the links…

    OK, I am going to be nice, but you all know ‘why’ is talking to herself by changing names. So let her suffer away in her misery and completely ignore her since she knows NO TRUE FAN of JP’s would respond to her iditotic comments…

    Let’s celebrate and have fun….

    Can someone please post when the RC is and if we have a site that might cover it live…I am going to check as well…BRB

    No and they’ll always trip themselves up because of it. How do they know? Umm, well, could be because that’s the school he always attends wherever they are. That would be the first clue. I’m just following the not complicated to do, dots.
