a win for the basterds

"You probably heard we ain't in the prisoner-takin' business; we in the killin' Nazi business. And cousin, Business is a-boomin'."
seven times in the last 14 years, the film that's won the screen actor's guild award for best film ensemble has gone on to win the oscar for best picture.

last night that award went to "inglourious basterds".

the cast of "basterds" dedicated their award to the film's director quentin tarantino:
“A year ago we all sat down in Berlin and we read through the script ...and we saw that Quentin had pulled together actors from Ireland and from Austria and from France, and from Newton, Massachusetts, and from Germany and from New York, and from the Fangoria Convention... and pulled together such a wonderful, wonderful cast. We all felt it was really something special. So, it was an honor to be a part of it, Quentin.

For every actor out there, we just want you to know that whether you are Brad Pitt, one of the biggest stars in the world, or someone who has never acted in a motion picture, your vote is a vote for director Quentin Tarantino, who, if he feels you are right for the part, he will give it to you.

And, Quentin, your belief in us lets us rise to the occasion and brings out the best in all of us. It was an honor to be a part of this. We love you.”
