Tarantino, Terrio Take Scribe Oscars

Quentin Tarantino won his second Oscar for “Django Unchained,” nearly two decades after winning for “Pulp Fiction,” while Chris Terrio won the adapted screenplay category for “Argo.”

An exuberant Tarantino credited his cast with the victory, asserting that what people will remember is the characters he created and cast. “Boy, did I get it right,” he added.

Tarantino’s screenplay won over “Amour,” “Flight,” “Moonrise Kingdom” and “Zero Dark Thirty.” Tarantino also said that he was pleased to win in a year of “fantastic” writing.

Terrio’s screenplay was based on Joshua Bearman’s 2007 Wired magazine article entitled “The Canadian Caper.” A deeply moved Terrio singled out Ben Affleck, noting that Affleck had won a screenwriting Oscar 15 years ago for “Good Will Hunting,” saying, “It’s a gift I can never repay.”

Terrio also dedicated the award to Tony Mendez, the CIA spy who extricated the six American Embassy workers from Tehran in 1980. Terrio also won the screenplay award a week ago from the Writers Guild of America.
