Quentin Tarantino and friends celebrated the director as he was immortalized in front of the TCL Chinese Theatre when he placed his handprints and footprints in cement.
The L.A. morning rain did not dampen the spirits of the star-studded guestlist at the event, which included Robert Forster, Channing Tatum, Tim Roth, Christoph Waltz and Zoe bell.
Waltz, who appeared with the director when he received his star on Dec. 21, made the introduction speech for this honor as well.
“What Quentin did for a lot of actors and collaborators – he put them on the map,” said Waltz. “And I can safely say he didn’t put me on the map, he put me on the globe.” Which is true since both of Waltz’ Best Supporting Actor Oscars are for roles in films Tarantino directed.
The honor came less than a month after Tarantino received the 2,569th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Tarantino has won two Oscars for screenwriting for the films “Pulp Fiction” and “Django Unchained.”
His latest film, “The Hateful Eight” is in theaters now and has already received a Golden Globe nomination.
