It's clear that the 2017 Oscars will forever be remembered as the Year of the Best Picture SNAFU, but like, did you even notice that Brad Pitt was MIA?

Despite that fact that Moonlight was produced by Pitt's production company, Plan B Entertainment, he was reportedly too busy creating a sculpture. Yes, you read that correctly.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 53-year-old was held up in Los Angeles at artist Thomas Houseago's Frogtown studio making art.

Since his split from Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt has kept a strategically low profile—though he *was* in the audience at the Golden Globes when Meryl Streep encouraged everyone to "take your broken heart, make it into art." So maybe that sentiment really resonated with him?

Please Brad, for the good of mankind, show us that sculpture.
