The outlandish director delivered a gracious yet humorous speech that had “Django” star Kerry Washington in tears.
Tarantino’s films have been characterized by nonlinear storylines, satirical subject matter and an aestheticization of violence that often results in the exhibition of neo-noir characteristics.
Tarantino’s films have garnered both critical and commercial success. He has received many industry awards, including two Academy Awards, two Golden Globe Awards, two BAFTA Awards and the Palme d’Or and has been nominated for an Emmy and Grammy. Filmmaker and historian Peter Bogdanovich has called him “the single most influential director of his generation.
And this time he wins the Best Original Screenplay at the Academy Awards. We guessed that Argo should win it. Instead Ben Affleck won the Oscar for Best Picture. Affleck’s speach:
“You have to work harder than you think you possibly can. You can’t hold grudges. …And it doesn’t matter how you get knocked down in life because that’s gonna happen. All that matters is that you gotta get up.”
