The movie has already picked up a string of accolades and is nominated for eight Academy Awards at the upcoming Oscars in March (09), including Best Picture and Best Director.

Waltz, who is up for a Best Supporting Actor prize at the Oscars, has already picked up a London Critics’ Circle Film Award for Actor of the Year for his role as Colonel Hans Landa in the 2009 movie.

But he’s convinced Quentin Tarantino’s critically-acclaimed film would never have happened if Pitt hadn’t signed up, because Waltz believes the Fight Club star is responsible for making it such a success.

    This just makes me respect Christoph Waltz even more. He is aware that it was Brad that made it all happen. I think he respects and likes Brad, and knows what he did to make the film a success, even though he is getting the awards attention (which he deserves as he was great!!). Thanks Mr. Waltz.
