LOS ANGELES, Feb. 9 (Xinhua) -- Brad Pitt nabbed the Best Supporting Actor award for his role in the film "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" at the 92nd Academy Awards ceremony, or the Oscars, held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday night.

Pitt beat out the "Irishman" duo Al Pacino and Joe Pesci, Tom Hanks ("A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood") and Anthony Hopkins ("The Two Popes").

Pitt had never won an acting Oscar despite three previous nominations. He won a Best Picture Oscar for producing "12 Years a Slave" in 2014. He has raked in the Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild awards as well as a British Academy award for his role as Cliff Booth in Quentin Tarantino's "One Upon a Time in Hollywood" this season.
