Who Was Brad Pitt’s Plus One at the Oscars 2020?
On Sunday night, Brad Pitt brought a special woman as his plus one to the Oscars!
Before winning Best Supporting Actor for his work In “Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood,” Pitt was seen sitting next to his longtime manager Cynthia Pett-Dante.
Cynthia, the co-owner of talent management company Brillstein Entertainment Partners, rep other big names including Courteney Cox, Charlie Hunnam, Rami Malek and Elizabeth Olsen.
Several times, the camera panned to Brad and Cynthia, who sat in the front row with Leonardo DiCaprio and Camila Morrone.
When Brad's name was announced, he hugged Leonardo.

The 56-year-old told the star-studded crowd, “Wow. This is really incredible. Thank you, Academy, for this honor of honors.”Noting that he had 45 seconds on stage, Pitt also took a political jab, saying that it was 45 more seconds than John Bolton got at President Trump's impeachment trial. He added, “I'm thinking Quentin does a movie about it and in the end, the adults do the right thing.”
He also acknowledged Leonardo DiCaprio, saying, “Leo, I'll ride on your coattails any day man.”
The “gobsmacked” Pitt recounted his road to Hollywood, adding, “Once upon a time in Hollywood? Ain't that the truth.”
Nearly two years ago, Cynthia was by Brad's side for the Gersh Oscar Party. It is unknown exactly how long Cynthia has represented Brad, but she's been his spokeswoman since at least 2012.
A few weeks ago, Pitt played coy when asked who he would bring as his date to the Academy Awards. He told “Extra's” Renee Bargh, “That feels like it's like a month away, and it probably is. I don't know, one at a time. I haven't gotten that far.”
When Pitt took home a Golden Globes, he poked fun at his love life, saying he is linked to every woman he talks to. He joked, “I wanted to bring my mom but I couldn't, because anyone I stand next to, they say I'm dating. And that would just be awkward."
