The first winner of Oscar night, Christoph Waltz, walked up to the press-room mic on Sunday clutching his golden statuette.

Asked how he felt after winning his second supporting-actor for his work in a Quentin Tarantino flick, the 56-year-old was choked with emotion: "I think, like, five minutes ago I got this ... I was on a list of the greatest actors around ... How do you think someone feels when his name is called in that context? I can't tell you. I'm sorry."

With "Django Unchained" doing blockbuster business, Waltz was asked what it was like starring in the highest grossing western of all-time: "I'm just an actor, not an accountant."

He admitted he thought of an acceptance speech but didn't go to the trouble of writing one. Then Waltz emphasized yet again his admiration for the writer-director behind "Django" and his previous winning role in "Inglourious Basterds."

"Quentin writes poetry, and I like poetry," said Waltz.

He then added an interesting tidbit about working with Tarantino the second time around: "I know Quentin, so I read the pages as they came out of the printer - page by page."
