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.

Quentin Tarantino Explains How 'The Golden Girls' Helped His Film 'Reservoir Dogs' Get Made!

Quentin Tarantino paid a visit to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday night (January 8) and shared the funny connection between his 1992 crime film Reservoir Dogs and the classic TV show The Golden Girls.

The Oscar-winning writer-director explained how his acting cameo gig he landed on The Golden Girls as an Elvis impersonator helped him create Reservoir Dogs.

Quentin had what he called “a very unsuccessful acting career.” Tarantino shared, “However, one of the jobs I did get, and not because I did a wonderful audition, but simply because they sent my picture in and they said, ‘He’s got it,’ was for an Elvis impersonator on ‘The Golden Girls.’”

“It became a two-part ‘Golden Girls.’ So I got paid residuals for both parts,” Quentin continued. “It was so popular they put it on a “Best of The Golden Girls,” and I got residuals every time that showed. So I got paid maybe, I don’t know, $650 for the episode, but by the time the residuals were over, three years later, I made like $3,000. And that kept me going during our pre-production time trying to get ‘Reservoir Dogs‘ going.”

Quentin also talked to Jimmy about becoming a local celebrity after earning a reputation for giving super-involved movie recommendations as a video store clerk and how his record collection helps him write movies.

Brad Pitt is poking fun at Quentin Tarantino!

While making an appearance at the 2019 New York Film Critics Circle Awards on Tuesday night (January 7) in New York City, the 56-year-old Golden Globe-winning actor took to the stage to introduce Quentin for winning Best Screenplay for their hit film, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Brad extended his disarming streak on the awards mic, describing Quentin Tarantino‘s screenplay for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood as showcasing “iambic Quent-ameter,” according to Deadline.

Brad joked about the showbiz orientation of the film, which tends to play well with awards voters: “Finally, after all that time, a film about Hollywood.”

Brad also lightly roasted his director as “the only guy I know who needs cocaine to stop talking.”

That same night, Brad Pitt was spotted leaving the apartment of his good friend Bradley Cooper after attending the New York Film Critic Circle gala.
