They may be supporting, but that doesn’t make them any less important.

Tonight, the 77th annual Golden Globes took place at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles. During the ceremony, Brad Pitt won the award for Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture for playing Cliff Booth in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Other nominees included Tom Hanks for A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (played Fred Rogers), Anthony Hopkins for The Two Popes (played Pope Benedict XVI), Al Pacino for The Irishman (played Jimmy Hoffa) and Joe Pesci for The Irishman (played Russell Bufalino).

The Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture has been around since 1944, though it was originally called Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture.

Previous winners include Mahershala Ali for Green Book, Sam Rockwell for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Aaron Taylor-Johnson for Nocturnal Animals, Sylvester Stallone for Creed, J. K. Simmons for Whiplash, Jared Leto for Dallas Buyers Club, Christoph Waltz for Django Unchained, Christopher Plummer for Beginners, Christian Bale for The Fighter and Heath Ledger for The Dark Knight.

Only five celebs have taken home two Golden Globes in this category: Richard Attenborough, Edmund Gwenn, Martin Landau, Edmond O’Brien and Christoph Waltz.

Talk about an honor.
