Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Meryl Streep, Robert DeNiro Rock New York Film Critics Event

By Roger Friedman

Brad Pitt was hilarious and touching last night accepting his Best Actor award from the New York Film Critics Circle. Joining other honorees Meryl Streep, Albert BrooksJessica Chastain and the folks from “The Artist,” Pitt was a little nervous and actually spoke softly from the podium. Angelina Jolie was with him, looking more gorgeous than ever, accepting kudos for her underrated film “In the Land of Blood and Honey.” Viola Davis, herself a nominee for “The Help” from many different groups, presented Best Actress to Streep. Davis joked: “I popped a lot of Stress Tabs when we made ‘Doubt’.” Streep was philosophical, having won the same award two years ago: “We do this for love, and for as long as we can.”
