That’s a bingo! Christoph Waltz wins another Golden Globe for another Tarantino performance

Christoph Waltz beat out four much more famous actors to score the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture for his performance as the most charismatic character in a historical drama written and directed by Quentin Tarantino.

Is it us or is it 2010 all over again?

The Austrian-born Waltz was first introduced to a wide American audience via his portrayal of Col. Hans Landa, a scheming yet oddly likable (or at least occasionally amusing) Nazi officer in Quentin Tarantino's WWII revisionist fantasy, "Inglourious Basterds." Waltz not only held his own against the film's lead actor, superstar Brad Pitt, he completely upstaged him at every turn, along with all of his other co-stars (whether he had any actual screen time with them or not). Tarantino's stylized dialogue effortlessly rolled off Waltz's tongue as he brought a fey charm to a despicable monster, making Landa the most compelling Tarantino character since perhaps Jules Winfield (Samuel L. Jackson) in "Pulp Fiction." Waltz won both the Golden Globe and the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his performance.

Now, Waltz has reunited with Tarantino for "Django Unchained," a "southern" revenge drama set a few years before the American Civil War in which he plays Dr. King Schultz, a former dentist who's reinvented himself as a bounty hunter. Schultz is, of course, a much more heroic character than Col. Landa, taking freed slave Django (Jamie Foxx) under his wing and assisting his protege in rescuing his wife (Kerry Washington) from the clutches of an evil plantation owner (Leonardo DiCaprio), though the two characters are at least not-too-distant cousins in their eccentricity and charisma -- traits made very distinctive (and similar) by Waltz's particularly mannered performance(s).

Now, Waltz has won the Golden Globe for his portrayal of Schultz, as he did three years ago for his performance as Landa. Last week, Waltz received an Oscar nomination for his work as Schultz, which means he could be set to mirror his Oscar win for his performance as Landa.

Christoph Waltz may have found the magic formula to scoring major acting awards: Always work with Quentin Tarantino, and more or less play the same guy each time. As he's been genuinely terrific every time so far (even if the characters are sometimes difficult to tell apart), we're certainly not complaining.
