We’re really excited about this year’s Academy Awards. Why? Because Brad Pitt snagged a nomination, and that means he’s positively absolutely for sure guaranteed to attend the Oscars this year. Well, that’s been our mantra anyway. And when he does walk the red carpet, we’d be lying if we said we weren’t interested to see who he’ll bring as his date. Pitt hasn’t shown face at the Oscars since 2014, when he and ex-wife Angelina Jolie pretty much stole the show. So, naturally we’re wondering who he’ll bring come Sunday evening.
Pitt’s past dates have been on our mind since Pitt and Jennifer Aniston’s SAG Awards reunion, which made us seriously nostalgic — and curious if there could be another chance for the power couple. And since they never actually attended the Academy Awards together, maybe 2020 could be their year.
In fact, only a select few women have ever accompanied the Fight Club star to the biggest night in Hollywood…largely because he’s only ever been to the show a handful of times himself. It’s not his fault though — you can pretty much blame the Academy. For all of his incredible performances over the years, he’s only been nominated a few times. In 1996, he snagged a Best Supporting Actor nomination for 12 Monkeys, and he’s been nominated as Best Actor twice; in 2009, for his role in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, and in 2012 for Moneyball. The A-lister has also been nominated as a producer twice, accepting a gold statue for Best Picture in 2014 for 12 Years a Slave. Now, in 2020, he’s up for Best Supporting Actor once again for his role in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
So, as we mentally prepare for who Pitt might take to the 92nd Academy Awards Sunday, let’s take a trip down memory lane and remember all of his Oscars dates over the years.
