Quentin Tarantino Makes a Major Flub in His Golden Globes Speech

In the speech by “The Hateful Eight” director Quentin Tarantino when he accepted the Golden Globe for Best Original Score on behalf of composer Ennio Morricone, Tarantino got his facts wrong, according to People magazine.

“The director said Morricone had ‘never won an award for any one individual movie at a U.S. awards show’ — but as many film buffs were quick to point out on Twitter, Tarantino was wrong,” People reports. “The acclaimed composer has in fact won two Golden Globes, one for ‘The Mission’ in 1987, and one for ‘The Legend of 1900’ in 2000.”

Morricone, whose resume includes “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly” and “Once Upon a Time in the West,” has never received an Academy Award for a single film, but received an honorary Oscar in 2007, the report notes.


  1. Pretty sure he was referring to the Oscar and Grammy Awards.

  2. Yeah, like he said — Ennio Morricone has never won a “major” award.
    The Golden Globes. Yeesh.

  3. Tarantino just likes to hear himself talk, it doesn’t matter what the words are.

  4. its a major award!! (a leg lamp)
