Sunday March 07 the wait for Christoph Waltz was over. The 53-year old Austrian received his Oscar from Spanish actress Penelope Cruz for best supporting actor in his role as Hans Landa in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglorious Basterds. We congratulate Christoph Waltz on his Oscar win and we are very happy for his great personal achievement. This Oscar, but also the nominations of Michael Haneke and Christian Berger for “The White Ribbon/Das Weiße Band”, testify to the great potential of Austrian film. Both President Heinz Fischer and Foreign Minister Michael Spindelegger congratulated Christoph Waltz on this great achievement. We look forward to seeing more of Waltz outstanding performances and of Austrian talent in future productions.
