Austrian-born actor Christoph Waltz and writer-director Quentin Tarantino are making for an unbeatable Golden Globe team: For the second time in two tries, Waltz has collected a supporting actor trophy for his work in a Tarantino film.
In 2010, Waltz won the supporting actor Golden Globe for playing a heartless Nazi in Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds," and on Sunday Waltz took home the same award for playing the bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz in the filmmaker's "Django Unchained."
Waltz went on to win the supporting actor trophy at the Academy Awards in 2010; he is nominated this year as well.
"Quentin, you know that my indebtedness to you and gratitude knows no words," Waltz said in accepting the first prize in Sunday's telecast. Echoing a line from the movie, he called Tarantino a "north star."
