Christoph Waltz won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor tonight, for his role in Django Unchained.

This is the actor's second Academy Award and nomination, after taking home the win in the same category for Inglorious Basterds in 2009.

Once receiving his golden man from actress Octavia Spencer, Waltz seemed to be a little in shock.

"Thank you, thank you so much," he began, and continued to thank each of his costars and everyone that was involved with production for the film. But his utmost admiration was directed toward none other than Quentin Tarantino

"We participated in a hero's journey, hero here being Quentin Tarantino," he began. "You scaled the mountain because you're not afraid of it, you slay the dragon, because you're not afraid of it and you cross through fire because it's worth it. I borrowed my character's words. I'm sorry, I couldn't resist."
