Achievement in Directing - Quentin Tarantino, 'Inglourious Basterds'
"Inglorious Bastards" received eight Oscar nominations, including one for Quentin Tarantino's directing. Tarantino, both an actor and director, has been passionate about the film industry from a young age. "I couldn't spell anything. I couldn't remember anything, but I could go to a movie and I knew who starred in it, who directed it, everything," he once said.
