Brad Pitt won best supporting actor Acadamy Award for his recent film "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood," Sunday night and he began his acceptance speech with a slight against the U.S. Senate.


"They said I have 45 seconds," Pitt said about the time he got for his acceptance speech. "Which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week."

It was a reference to the Republican-controlled Senate refusing to hear testimony from Trump's former national security adviser, who could have given a first-hand account of President Donald Trump's bribery scheme with Ukraine. Bolton had previously called it a "drug deal," that he said he didn't want any part of.
