By Wire Service

Brad Pitt is an Academy Award winner once again.

Pitt won the Oscar for best supporting actor on Sunday for his role as stuntman Cliff Booth in Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood.”

Pitt thanked Tarantino for casting him in the film. Then he gave a shout out to his co-star, Leonardo DiCaprio.

“Leo, I’ll ride on your coattails any day, man,” Pitt said. “The view’s fantastic.”

Pitt dedicated the award to his six children.

“I’m not one to look back, but this has made me do so. I think of my folks taking me to the drive-in to see ‘Butch and Sundance,’ loading up my car and moving out here, Gina and Ridley giving me my first shot. All the wonderful people I’ve met along the way, to stand here now, once upon a time in Hollywood. Ain’t that the truth. This is for my kids, who color everything I do. I adore you.”

Pitt, 56, previously won an Oscar in 2013 as a producer of “12 Years a Slave.”
