The actor was honoured with the "Maltin Modern Master Award" at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival on Wednesday. He prepared another charming awards season speech for the occasion. See it below!

Brad Pitt was in attendance at the Festival to receive the "Maltin Modern Master Award" from film critic and Festival moderator Leonard Maltin. Pitt has received praise and several accolades already this awards season for his role as stuntman "Cliff Booth" in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood from director Quentin Tarantino. The Maltin Award was the latest in a string of several that have required Pitt to deliver a speech onstage, and he once again did not disappoint in Santa Barbara.

The actor kicked off the speech by acknowledging that lifetime achievement awards remind him that: "I'm old! I've been around a while." He followed this up with jokes that poke fun at his age and films, including Fight Club. Despite the jokes, Pitt's resounding message was one of gratitude. See this clip from the speech for yourself!
