Waltz: ‘Basterds wouldn’t have happened without Pitt’

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.

Cool Stuff: The Lost Art of Inglourious Basterds

Quentin Tarantino, Upper Playground and The Weinstein Company have teamed up to present, The Lost Art of Inglourious Basterds — a benefit for Haiti this Thurday, February 18th 2010 from 6:00-9:00pm in Downtown Los Angeles. A bunch of artists have created their own posters based on Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds. You can check out eleven of the thirteen posters after the jump. The event will be held at The Upper Playground Art Gallery, and all proceeds from this program will be donated to The American Red Cross to help the victims of the Haiti Earthquake. Each print will be numbered and signed by Quentin Tarantino, in a extremely limited edition of only six prints per poster.

Thanks to Gabrielle.

‘Inglourious Basterds’: A Most Unlikely Oscar Juggernaut

On its surface, an exploitation film about Nazi hunters doesn’t exactly have “Oscar potential” written all over it. Factor in violent scenes of people having their heads bashed in with baseball bats, gruesome laughs that arrive with the mutilation of characters, and the fact that the movie was inspired by this, and it seems like a downright miracle that “Inglourious Basterds” would be deemed award-worthy.

But award-worthy it is, as evidenced by Tuesday morning’s (February 2) announcement that “Basterds” has hunted down eight Oscar nominations, second only to “Avatar” and “The Hurt Locker.” Once again, the incomparable Quentin Tarantino has displayed his knack for dusting off genres and plot conventions dismissed by pop-culture as unworthy and reminded us of the beauty he sees in those worlds.

This thing was a gift. It landed in my lap; six weeks later, we were shooting,” Brad Pitt recalled of Tarantino’s stunning script. “You don’t want to change a thing. I compare it to working with a Coen brothers script, because the dialogue is so spot-on. And there’s a music to it, that if you take one step off the trailer, you just muck up the whole thing. And so you stay on course. It was really so defined and laid-out.
