    Brad Pitt surprised everyone when he presented the film Moonlight at the Golden Globes on Sunday night in a rare public appearance.

    Brad, 53, took the stage to a loud applause from the crowd, wearing a classic black tuxedo for the occasion.

    ‘It’s born of the courage of a group of actors willing to strip to their souls and express their humanism inside mistake and misstep and misdeed,’ Brad said during his presentation of the film, which was named Best Film by the National Society of Film Critics on Saturday, according to Variety.

    ‘It is Barry Jenkins profound belief that we all stand at the threshold of change and forgiveness where we only grant acceptance and love to ourselves,’ he continued. ‘Nominated for 6 Golden Globes, this is Moonlight.’

    Brad’s production company, Plan B, partnered with A24 to produce the coming-of-age drama about a gay, African-American boy, and the film has been earning Oscar buzz.

    Last November, Pitt made his first public appearance since news broke of his split from Angelina Jolie, when he attended a private screening of Moonlight in Los Angeles.

    Brad, 53, and Angelina, 41, have a voluntary temporary custody agreement in place that allows the actor supervised visitation with the children.

    The father of six has had weekly supervised visits with the kids since October, according to a court filing by Angelina.
