This is Brad Pitt’s first Oscar win in an acting category. He had previously received a “best picture Oscar” for 12 Years a Slave, which he produced. After thanking director Quentin Tarantino and co-star Leonardo DiCaprio, Pitt went on to thank the rest of the cast and crew. He gave notable recognition to the stunt coordinators and stunt crews. A nod to his character in this film.

Oscars with no Female Director Nominee or Winner!

The ceremony was again held without a designated host just like in 2019. The night opened with a raucous musical number by Janelle Monae. This was followed by an introduction by two past hosts, Steve Martin and Chris Rock. They joked about the lack of female directors and people of colour among the nominees.

There were other musical performances from Eminem and Cynthia Erivo.
