Brad Pitt is entering a time in his life where he able to sit back and simply appreciate the awards as if they ultimately don't make or break the distinction of a successful acting career. His carefree attitude has been on display this award season as he's comfortably joked on stage while accepting awards time and time again. His most recent recognition came at the Screen Actors Guild Awards this past Sunday, where he took home the award for Best Supporting Actor.

During his speech, he once again made some jokes, but also threw some shade towards his ex-wife, Angelina Jolie, who did not watch the ceremony, but has heard the remarks and is reportedly not happy with them.

When Pitt stepped on stage, it was comical from the beginning as he just let the zingers fly. "I’ve got to add this to my Tinder profile," he began, which led to uproarious laughter from the people in attendance. The Once Upon a Time in Hollywood actor later quipped, "Let’s be honest, it was a difficult part… guy who gets high, takes his shirt off and doesn’t get along with his wife."

While not entirely clear that the comment was directed at Jolie, who was not in attendance, a source close to the Girl, Interrupted star spoke with HollywoodLife sharing, "She’s heard about what was said and has no interest in watching it."

Angelina Jolie Not a Fan of Watching or Attending Award Shows

Perhaps Pitt knew that his ex-wife didn't like to watch award shows and could get away with a little jab during his acceptance speech. A source speaking to HollywoodLife revealed, "Angelina doesn’t watch awards shows and neither do her kids. It’s never been of interest to them or something they talk about and that’s a good thing because she would not want the kids watching Brad’s speech."

Regardless of whether Jolie watched the award ceremony, she's taking a proactive approach and not delving into drama with Pitt. She's focusing on work and her children. "In order to maintain her peace of mind she makes a very conscious choice to avoid reading things online about herself or Brad or their divorce, she doesn’t look for drama and is focused on her kids and her work, the rest of it is just noise," a source shared.

Despite having a little fun here and there during the award ceremonies, the Fight Club star is having quite the award season so far. He recently received his fourth Oscar nomination for his role in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Pitt has already won a Golden Globe, Critic's Choice Award, and now, a SAG award for the role of best supporting actor. With his successful tour-de-force this season, pundits are predicting that Pitt will be bringing home his first Oscar in February.

Angelina Jolie, on the other hand, has been focusing on the release of her new film, Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, and spending time with the six children that she and Pitt share. Jolie even took the bunch on an international trip during her film press tour. As for if Pitt will make any other comedic remarks about Jolie during the Oscars ceremony, we'll have to wait and see. Regardless, if Pitt's award acceptance speech track record this season is any indication, we're in for a treat, no matter who or what is the subject of his words are about.
