Joaquin Phoenix took home his first Oscar for his role in Joker and gave a passionate speech about animal rights and a tribute to his late brother, River Phoenix.

“When he was 17, my brother wrote this lyric, he said: ‘Run to the rescue with love and peace will follow.’ Thank you,” Phoenix said as he closed out his acceptance speech for Best Actor.

Brad Pitt finally thanked his six children during his acceptance speech for Best Actor in a Supporting Role for his turn in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

“This is for my kids, who color everything I do,” Pitt, 56, said holding up his Oscars statue. “I adore you,” the proud father said.

As Radar first reported, Luke Perry was snubbed in the In Memoriam gallery. He passed away in March 2019, weeks after the previous Oscars, but he along with actor Cameron Boyce were left out of the tribute montage.

“I've been a scoundrel all my life," Phoenix said during his acceptance speech. "I've been selfish I've been cruel at times, hard to work with, and I'm grateful that so many in this room have given me a second chance,” he said as he teared up.

“I think that's when we're at our best. When we support each other. When we help each other to grow, when we guide each other toward redemption, that is the best of humanity," he said.
