On the latter score, Pitt says, the children have certain favorite activities – both at home and on outings.
"A lot of it, for us, is family," the actor, 48, told PEOPLE Sunday at the Producers Guild Awards in Beverly Hills. "Just breaking away and getting to take the kids to Benihana's or something."
And what about when they're lounging around the house? "iCarly," says Pitt. "iCarly is big in our house. It is. I know every episode."
Pitt also offered an update on his injured knee, saying he's "got the brace for another month" but should be in the clear after that.
Otherwise, he says, awards season is a nice time to reflect on their work – he received raves for acting in Moneyball and Jolie was honored with the Stanley Kramer Award for her work on In the Land of Blood and Honey, which she directed.
"I'm so happy that the films are appreciated. That's what this has been about for me," said Pitt. "We get to catch up with people we haven't seen in a while, old friends. And that's a nice thing. I consider it part of the job."
