Guess who decided to (finally!) make an appearance on the award show season?
That would be, Brad Pitt. The "12 Years a Slave" producer got gussied up in a tux to attend the 20th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards at the Shrine Auditorium on Saturday in Los Angeles.
This is the first time we've seen the 50-year-old actor during the award show season, despite his film being nominated for numerous accolades and scooping up wins for Best Film at the 2014 Critic’s Choice Awards and Best Picture: Drama at The Golden Globe Awards.
Naturally, Pitt came back with a bang and started off his evening with a viral meme. During the awards show coverage, Mindy Kaling unintentionally photobombed Pitt and then tweeted about the funny situation.

During Saturday's show, Pitt was seated at the "12 Years a Slave" table and was spotted cheering enthusiastically as his co-star Lupita Nyong’o won the award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role.

The dapper actor was definitely in high demand at the soiree. He was snapped chatting with nominee Barkhad Abdi, sharing a laugh with Tom Hanks, and enjoying the company of his former castmates like Matt Damon. He also took a minute to snap a photo with his longtime pal and "Ocean's Eleven" co-star, Julia Roberts. The duo smiled for the cameras and looked happy to be reunited.
Pitt's fiancée Angelina Jolie did not attend the evening's festivities. The Academy Award-winning actress, who was last photographed in Australia on the set of her film, "Unbroken," is believed to still be working on her film Down Under.
We're glad Pitt is back in town for awards season.
