Hollywood is done and dusted with its biggest night of the year as it celebrated films and actors across genres by honouring them with the 92nd Academy Award at Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California. Among the winners was popular actor Brad Pitt, who received his first-ever Oscar for his supporting role in Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Of course, the moment was quite ecstatic, but what is winning netizens' heart is the hug between Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio before the former went on stage to receive the award.
After Brad's name was announced for the best supporting actor award, the Fight Club star hugged Leonardo DiCaprio before proceeding towards the stage. The moment has since gone viral on social media with many dubbing the moment as the best moment from the Oscars 2020. The bromance between the two greatest superstars left fans emotional on the microblogging platform.
During his acceptance speech, Brad also took a dig at the recently concluded President Trump's impeachment trial where he attacked the Senate for blocking the testimony of former NSA John Bolton.
