AceShowbiz - Quentin Tarantino is the latest celebrity who cemented his mark on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The 52-year-old filmmaker's hand and foot prints were enshrined in cement on Tuesday, January 8 in front of TCL Chinese Theatre.
Waltz praised Tarantino during his introduction speech, "What Quentin did for a lot of actors and collaborators - he put them on the map. And I can safely say he didn't put me on the map, he put me on the globe."
Tarantino said he was delighted by the honor. "Actually, it's not that I have wanted to do this my whole career, I have wanted to put my hand and footprints in the Grauman Chinese Theatre courtyard way before I ever had a career," he told the crowd. "This is something I've wanted to do my whole life."
The honor came less than a month after Tarantino was presented with the 2,569th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The director has won two Oscars for screenwriting for movies "Pulp Fiction" and "Django Unchained". His latest film, "The Hateful Eight", is nominated for Golden Globes for Best Screenplay, Original Score for composer Ennio Morricone and Supporting Actress for Jennifer Jason Leigh.
