The January 18 event featured actresses in edgy and low-cut styles that showed off their cleavage. But Pitt, who failed to thank his kids in his acceptance speech for best supporting actor at the Golden Globe Awards earlier this month, looked traditional.
The actor, who is finalizing his divorce from Angelina Jolie, told the crowd, “Spielberg, Grazer, Zanuck, Kennedy, these are just a few of the names I’ve cheapened tonight by accepting this award. When I started out as an actor, I wondered about producers, just what the f*** do they do? I’m now painfully aware of all that you do and I commend you all. I think that our job as producers are ultimately protectors, stewards of story and protectors of the storytellers and I find that to be an awesome responsibility. Plan B, we’ve been at for about 16 years, going on 17. I have no regrets. Other than sharing our name with an emergency contraceptive pill. Didn’t see that one coming.”
Also at the show, the war drama 1917 won outstanding producer of theatrical motion pictures, making it a favorite for the upcoming Academy Awards.
