Christoph Waltz + Quentin Tarantino = Oscar Gold. By pairing up a second time with Tarantino, Waltz earned his second Best Supporting Actor Oscar. Their first pairing resulted in Waltz picking up the Best Supporting Actor for his work in Inglourious Basterds, with pairing #2 – Django Unchained – adding more gold to his trophy shelf.
Waltz quoted his character, Dr. King Schultz, during his acceptance speech. “We participated in a hero’s journey – the hero here being Quentin. And you scale the mountain because you’re not afraid of it. You slay the dragon because you’re not afraid of it and you cross through fire because it’s worth it. I borrowed my character’s words so sorry… couldn’t resist. Thank you.”
