Directors Quentin Tarantino & Lulu Wang Get Honored at Final Draft Awards!

Quentin Tarantino throws up the peace sign while hitting the carpet at the 2020 Final Draft Awards held at the Paramount Theatre on Tuesday (January 21) in Hollywood.

The Once Upon a Time in Hollywood director celebrated the art of screenwriting during his induction into the Final Draft Hall of Fame at the award ceremony.

Quentin revealed filmmaker Walter Hill was his inspiration to become a screenwriter: “Walter was one of my biggest heroes growing up,” he said (via Variety). “I had only read two scripts and they were so effing dry. But when I read ‘Hard Times,’ it wasn’t just description. It wasn’t just a blue print for how to do the movie. I was supposed to make the movie in my mind. When the script was over and I put it down, I saw the movie.”

The Farewell director Lulu Wang was also honored at the event with the new voice award for film, presented by Parasite filmmaker Bong Joon Ho.

The awards show, which honors the year’s best in screenwriting and is presented by popular screenwriting software program Final Draft, also recognized Pose creator Steven Canals with the New Voice Award for TV presented by his stars Angel Bismark Curiel and MJ Rodriguez.
