Tarantino wins at the Brittania Awards.
Meanwhile, the John Schlesinger Award for Artistic Excellence in Directing was presented to Quentin Tarantino — the first American ever to take an award that has recently been handed to the likes of Christopher Nolan, Danny Boyle and Anthony Minghella.
Christoph Waltz has been repositioned as a lead actor for Django Unchained - which I agree with. Based on the script he seems the central character for most of the film. Perhaps his moving out of the supporting actor category opens up some room for Samuel L Jackson of Leonardo DiCaprio to get a nomination.
The Guardian has a rundown of their projected Oscar nominations – and has Django Unchained for Best Picture, Tarantino for Director, and Foxx as a darkhorse for Best Actor.
I didn’t pay much attention to the Oscars this year, but did notice that Robert Richardson won for Best Cinematography (its his 3rd award in that category) for his work on the Martin Scorsese Hugo.
Why do I mention this? Because Robert Richardson is the cinematographer for Django Unchained.
Tarantino will be receiving the first ever Music+Film Award at the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards.
The Critics’ Choice Movie Awards will be telecast at 9 p.m. on VH1
