LOS ANGELES: The 92nd Academy Awards is on in full swing with A-listers bringing their fashion A-game to the glamorous red carpet at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California. Actors Brad Pitt and Laura Dern bagged the supporting actors Oscar for their roles in Once Upon a Time and Marriage Story.

Pitt’s portrayal of stuntman Cliff Booth in Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood won him the Oscars. Laura Dern won the best supporting actress Oscar for her role as a divorce lawyer in Marriage Story.

During his speech, he called out the Trump impeachment trial for blocking the testimony of former national security adviser John Bolton, reports variety.com.

"They told me I only have 45 seconds up here, which is 45 seconds more than the Senate gave John Bolton this week," he said on stage after receiving his first Oscar for acting.

"I'm thinking maybe Quentin does a movie about it...in the end, the adults do the right thing."

He went on to further pay tribute to Tarantino: "Tarantino, you are original, you are one of a kind. The film industry would be a much drier place without you."

He also bagged the supporting actor prize at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, BAFTAs and Golden Globes.

Pitt previously won Oscar as a producer when "12 Years a Slave" took best picture in 2014. Laura Dern won the best supporting actress Oscar for her role as a divorce lawyer in "Marriage Story".

She was nominated along with popular faces like Kathy Bates and Florence Pugh.

Dern thanked the Academy for her first Oscar, director Noah Baumbach for his "vision, magic and friendship", her step-children and children, and her parents, actors Diane Ladd and Bruce Dern: "You got game, I love you."

The actress, who sported a pale pink dress for the gala, called the victory "the best birthday present ever".

She brought her famous mother, Diane Ladd, and her children -- son Ellery Harper, and daughter Jaya Harper, to the ceremony held here on Sunday night.

This isn''t her first win for the film. Dern has bagged the Bafta, Golden Globe, Critics Choice and Screen Actors Guild awards too.
