Charlize, Brad and Adam – Breitling’s Cinema Squad – honoured at the Oscars
And the winner is . . .
Three members of the Breitling Cinema Squad – Charlize Theron, Adam Driver, and Brad Pitt – were nominated for Academy Awards, their industry’s highest accolade. Breitling congratulates all of them for their Oscar-worthy performances. We were especially excited when Brad Pitt won the much-deserved statuette for his memorable performance in Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
Charlize Theron – already an Oscar winner – was nominated as Best Actress in a Leading Role for her portrayal of Fox News anchor-woman Megyn Kelly in Bombshell and Adam Driver was nominated as Best Leading Actor for his role in Marriage Story. Brad Pitt’s Best Supporting Actor Oscar was his second Academy Award. He had already won one as a producer for 12 Years a Slave.
The Cinema Squad is a part of Breitling’s 360° #squadonamission campaign. When the initiative was announced, a buzz reverberated throughout the watch industry. As Breitling CEO Georges Kern has said, As Breitling CEO Georges Kern has said, “From the beginning, we’ve pointed out that our Breitling squads are incredible sets of ambassadors with a shared profession, passion or mission.
