If you are from the planet Earth, then you definitely saw the viral picture of Brad Pitt and his ex-wife Jennifer Aniston. The picture is from the SAG awards ceremony where Pitt won the best supporting actor for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. After winning at SAG, it’s already no doubt that Pitt should take home his first golden statuette at Oscar 2020. Well, let’s take a look at 2020 Brad Pitt predictions to make sure of that.
Oscar 2020 is less than two weeks away. So, on February 9 we will know who are the lucky ones in the film industry this year. Taking a look at the Oscar Best Supporting Actor category, we can say that there will be a heated competition. Brad Pitt, Joe Pesci, Al Pacino, Tom Hanks, and Anthony Hopkins all gave great performances in 2019. However, according to online gambling sites in the US, Brad Pitt is a clear frontrunner of the category.
2020 Brad Pitt Predictions Promise the Actor His First Oscar
Believe it or not, during his outstanding career as a multilayered actor, Pitt never got an Oscar for his acting. Pitt had nominations for Oscar 3 times. The first time he got a Best Supporting Actor nomination in 1995 for his role in Twelve Monkeys. And he also got 2 Best Actor nominations for the films The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Moneyball. He has won just one golden statuette as a producer of 12 Years a Slave, which won Best Picture (2014).
However, it seems that his role in this year’s best picture contender Once Upon a Time in Hollywood will bring the 56-year-old actor his first Oscar.
In Once Upon a Time in Hollywood he plays a stuntman Cliff Booth for 1960’s Hollywood fading star Rick Dalton (Leo di Caprio). His other great performance in a Tarantino film brought him many great reviews from film critics. Some even say that this is one of his best performances.
Well, he already took almost all the best supporting actor awards: at SAG, a Golden Globe, and Critics’ Choice. With the winning odds 1.04 odds at 1XBET Sportsbook, we think Pitt is the one taking home Oscar this year for Best Supporting Actor.
Moreover, it is worth to mention, he also leads the Best Supporting Actor category for BAFTA.
Who is Pitt up Against?
This year’s Oscar for Best Supporting Actor category is all veteran stars who enjoy recognition and praise for their careers. In fact, all the actors in the category, besides Pitt, already won an Oscar.
And though, as 2020 Brad Pitt predictions show, he is a clear frontrunner, Oscar always can have surprise turns. So, let’s see what odds bookmakers give to the other contenders of the Oscar Best Actor category.
