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.

    I thought the debate over the V article had been settled. Yet I see hatters/trolls still staying that Brad wants x, or similar dribble, and never shows affection to Angie. The man said he left the barren x for Angie. What more does he need to say?

    Also what difference does it make if Angie is in Toronto or not. Everyone in the know universe knows that if she is there Brad will hop on her as soon as they are in their car. If she is not there Brad will catch either a fast train, or a slow plane. Because baby knows that he is a coming. Forgive me Joe Crocker for taking liberies with your song.

    Trolls and haters are losing their sh*t fast. This is just the beginning. Can’t wait for the HW premier. :lol: :lol: :lol: Peace.

    Question, why do so many of the x posters speak in this broken English, patois? Are Famouse and Sam the only English speaking fans she has? Just asking. Peace

    #161: jordan, he was in such a good mood when he was doing AOJJ because Angie would sit on the sidelines at the set and blow him kisses all the time.


    Angelina and the kids have been in Calgary for no other reason than to spend time with Brad as he films The Assassination of Jesse James. And she has acted every bit the devoted wife. “Angelina is on the set all of the time, blowing him kisses,” says a source on set.

    #217: dina #1: it’s so noone will suspect they are the same person. It’s a disguise, so to speak. Don’t know who they think they’re fooling but sometimes, they can speak in straight English but then the dumb persona takes over and they’re back to pidgin.

    TORONTO (CP) – The city of Toronto has temporarily become the heartthrob capital of the world as movie stars George Clooney and Brad Pitt charmed their way through the Toronto International Film Festival today.


    An affable Clooney, wearing a grey suit with a black shirt, took jabs at his famous friend while promoting the stylish thriller, “Michael Clayton” at a downtown press conference.

    The bearded Clooney joked that Pitt was famous for doing nothing and was in fact, “a tiny, little man.”

    Pitt, meanwhile, held court over a relatively subdued press conference that immediately followed, breaking the mood with a goofy pose for photographers by sticking his finger in his ear and pretending to pick his nose.

    Pitt is drumming up interest in “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford,” a long and brooding western shot in Manitoba, Alberta and B.C. last year.

    Other stars in town include Jude Law, Reese Witherspoon, Ewan McGregor, Javier Bardem and Uma Thurman.

    Toronto’s 10-day movie marathon is considered among the most important festivals in the world, attracting the biggest names in the business.

    With back-to-back appearances by Clooney and Pitt – close friends since they began shooting the “Ocean’s Eleven” franchise – the star power at the festival reached its zenith today.

    The bearded Clooney frequently had the media in stitches, often making Pitt the butt of his jokes.

    When pressed to identify by name what celebrities he said were famous “for doing nothing,” Clooney replied: “OK, Brad Pitt.”

    “You know, I don’t like him,” he added later. “He’s very short. I don’t know whether you’ve seen him in person but he’s a tiny little man.”

    At one point, he refused to answer personal questions by telling a reporter “next question, have a nice day” and later joked about using a staple gun to control a group of horses in the film.

    “Oh, take it easy!” he said as reporters feigned shock.

    Clooney’s appearance before the media came the day after he showed up an hour early for the red carpet gala for “Michael Clayton,” chatting cheerfully with many of the assembled fans.

    Pitt, who just learned he’d won the best actor award at the Venice Film Festival, talked about trying to live his life under relentless media attention.

    He and actress Angelina Jolie have four children and are constant tabloid fixtures.

    “I know the deal, I understand the tradeoff,” said Pitt, dressed in a white jacket and wearing his signature tweed cap.

    “The only time it has crossed the line is when it’s a full-frontal assault on the kids. Unfortunately, there is no line with family…. And that really bothers me.”

    Clooney’s latest film is a dazzling, smart and suspenseful ride that sees the actor play against type. His character Michael Clayton, a troubleshooter at a high-powered New York law firm, is broke, alone, seemingly depressed and unable to eradicate his employer’s latest headache: that of a senior partner who’s apparently gone mad in the courtroom.

    Tom Wilkinson is outstanding as the lawyer in question who becomes convinced the agribusiness conglomerate he’s defending in a class-action lawsuit is knowingly making products that kill people.

    Pitt returns to familiar territory in “Jesse James” – he’s had success in the past with period pieces, including “Legends of the Fall” and “A River Runs Through It.” The film takes a contemplative look at the relationship formed between James, considered America’s most legendary gunslinger, and the fresh-faced Ford, who is barely 20 years old.

    Casey Affleck is a standout as the sneaky Ford.

    what happened to why?

    Thank you KK1 for the link. So the press conference was in the morning and not in the afternoon as I thought. That is why the pics came so early. So the pic Jared posted on the previous thread was Brad leaving or heading to the PC. We have two hours left for the premiere.

    “I sense a nomination easily for the Globes and most likely The Academy Awards.” Now why is that. Ask yourself one question. Who won this award last year. And did they make it to the osacrs?

  • the real tita

    #242: I thought you said that nobody liked them? Will you trolls make up your mind? Either they are hated and nobody pays attention to them or they’re so popular that they’re able to win awards over the more talented ones. Flipflopping will make you dizzy. Stay on one side of the issue and you duke it out with the other side! That’s how a winner acts. Losers go all over the place that’s why they lose!

  • to 114 Hmm

    Nice try troll. IGNORE Hmm. Enjoy the good day fans.

    So seriously, how many judges did you think Brad slept with? I’m betting 4!

    So seriously, how much did you have to pay the last guy you went out with to get laid? If he took a dime under $5,000, he’s an idiot.

  • Nonbeliever

    Nothing he says means anything. He’s just an actor and a selfish guy who’s been incredibly lucky.
