Brad Pitt waiting for his Oscar to be engraved is the coolest thing you'll see this year

After scooping up an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, Brad Pitt has managed to go viral on social media thanks to an amusing picture.

The picture in question was snapped by a photographer who spotted Pitt lounging casually in the Governors Ball after the awards show had concluded, which is where the stars lucky enough to win a statue get their names engraved onto it.

Take a look at Pitt's emotional Oscars speech below:

Pitt's super-relaxed stance shows how at ease he was with the whole affair. Wearing a pristine black velvet tuxedo, Pitt looked as though he had been cracking jokes with the engraver while he was etching his name into the prestigious award for portraying stuntman Cliff Booth.

In an emotional Oscars acceptance speech, Pitt appeared to rail against the Trump administration, stating: "They told me I only have 45 seconds up here, which is 45 seconds more than what the Senate gave John Bolton this week. I’m thinking maybe Quentin does a movie about it. In the end, the adults do the right thing."

He continued by thanking his costar Leonardo DiCaprio, as well as: "Geena [Davis] and Ridley [Scott] giving me my first shot, to all the wonderful people I met along the way to stand here now."

According to The Hollywood Reporter, when asked about his political jibes while backstage, Pitt responded: "I was really disappointed with this week. I think when gamesmanship trumps doing the right thing ... I don’t think we should let that slide. I’m very serious about that."

Hats off to you Brad! I've got to say that I think you really did deserve to win this year.
