Okay, so there are a handful of celebrities we could say "this is the year of" with. Adele, Ryan Gosling, Melissa McCarthy, Katy Perry…
But when it comes to top shelf acting nominations, it's looking like this is the year of Brad Pitt. He's already been nominated for Spirit and SAG awards, and he's probably gonna get a nod from the Oscars too.
But the Palm Springs Film Festival has decided to be the cherry on his yummy, yummy cake!
They will honor him for his superb work in Moneyball and Tree of Life.
Festival Chairman Harold Matzner states:
Brad Pitt consistently mesmerizes audiences with the depth and versatility of his performances. He has the rare ability to interpret and capture the most complicated facets of human nature, infusing his roles with strength and emotion. In The Tree of Life, he portrays a father whose sensitive son tries to make sense of their relationship and understand the wrongs of a difficult childhood. In Moneyball, he faces failure head on and draws upon his dormant, though fierce competitive nature to become a standout in the world of major league baseball management.
We couldn't agree more with ya, Harry!
Congrats, Brad! Fingers crossed for the Oscars!!!
