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.

    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!

    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.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    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.

    Kira Says:

    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!
