Ahead of Sunday's SAG Awards, Brad Pitt was one of the recipients of the David O. Selznick Achievement Award at the Producers Guild Awards on Saturday.

He shared the honor, handed out since 1989 to honor an outstanding body of work in film, with his Plan B partners Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner.

Brad was with "Extra's" Jenn Lahmers on the red carpet at the PGA, saying of the award, "You get through the year and all these films are out and you think, 'Someone made films and they put them out.' They often take years and years of development, nurturing, putting the right team together — it's a real laborious but loving process. I'm pretty proud of the films we have put out — 17 years we have been at it."

Plan B was behind three Best Picture Oscar winners: "The Departed" (2006), "12 Years a Slave" (2013), and "Moonlight" (2016).

Brad added of being recognized, "It's nice. It's nice for my partners, who really do the heavy lifting."

So how does he chose films? "Story first... 'What does it say to us and our time? Does it speak to us?'... 'Who's telling that story?' becomes the next question."

Joking about his recent comment in W magazine that he wants to dance again in 2020, Brad said, "Yes, my future is dance. Interpretative, definitely."
