LD OSCAR 3

Waltz, who previously won an Oscar for 'Inglourious Waltz, who previously won an Oscar for 'Inglourious Basterds', thanked his best original screenplay winning director Quentin Tarantino for his spaghetti western. "My... my unlimited gratitude goes to Dr King Schultz (his character). That is, of course, to the creator and the creator of his awe-inspiring world – Quentin Tarentino," the actor said. Tarantino, in an unusually long speech, said he was happy to win because it was one of the best years in writing. "...this time did I do it... I would like to say it's such an honor to get it this year because in both the original and the adapted categories, the writing is just fantastic. This will be the writers' year, man. Thank you very much. I love the competition. You guys all wonderful," said the writer-director, who previously won in the same category for 'Pulp Fiction'. The best adapted screenplay was won by Chris Terrio of 'Argo' who bested Tony Kushner for Lincoln, David Magee for 'Life of Pi' and David O Russell for Silver Linings Playbook among others. Terrio adapted the film from an article from Wired magazine and CIA man Tony Mendez's book 'The Master of Disguise'. Music director Mychael Danna won an Oscar in the Best Original Score category for his work for 'Pi' but India's hopes were dashed after sole nominee Bombay Jayshri lost the Best Original Song trophy to British singer Adele, who won the statuette for her soulful rendition of James Bond theme 'Skyfall'. 'Amour', nominated in five categories including the best director and actress, won its lone award in the best foreign film category over Norway's Kon-Tiki, Chile's 'No', Denmark's 'A Royal Affair' and 'War Witch' from Canada'. Claudia Miranda won the best cinematography trophy for his exceptional camera work in technically brilliant 'Life of Pi'. The film also brought Oscars for its visual effects team of Bill Westenhofer, Guillaume Rocheron, Erik-Jan De Boer and Donald R Elliott. (MORE) PTI BK BK
