Christoph Waltz Talks Dizzying Award Season in Oscar Press Room!

Christoph Waltz took home the best supporting actor Oscar for his work in Inglourious Basterds, and after answering a handful of questions in German, he chatted about the whole experience. Here's highlights:

  • Describing American award season: "Dizzying. It's mind boggling, it's fantastic, it's very intense. It takes a long time and I couldn't have possibly imagined that it would be like that. It was fantastic. Tomorrow I'm probably sorry that it's over."
  • On Quentin: "Everything, that when you start, that's what you dream of, and then you don't start for a long time because then you've done it and you get acquainted with reality, so you forget about that and then you get on with your job. You meet someone like Quentin, he brings back a lot of what you initially intended to do. That this would result, would be the result, that's something that I never thought about."
  • On seeing the Oscar coming as soon as he read the script: "I saw that this [part] was really good. This [Oscar] I did not see coming, definitely not. I was too busy. It was too much to do, I couldn't think of awards. Also, I would advise every beginning actor, if you allow me to, not to think of awards before starting the job. "
