Quentin Tarantino Made A MAJOR Factual Error In His Golden Globes Speech — And Twitter Is Calling Him Out On It!

As Django star Jamie Foxx might say, “Blame it on the a-a-a-a-a-alcohol!”

Quentin Tarantino delivered a touching speech on behalf of The Hateful Eight‘s composer Ennio Morricone when the film took home the Golden Globe for Best Original Score at Sunday’s awards show.

The director praised the composer on stage, detailing how special this win was because Morricone had “never won an award for any one individual movie at a U.S. awards show.”

But as Twitter was quick to point out, Tarantino was totally wrong!

Thanks to some quick fact-checking, movie buffs called out the filmmaker to confirm that Morricone had, in fact, won a few awards over his career!

The composer won two Globes — one for The Mission in 1987 and one for The Legend of 1900 in 2000!

(Morricone also earned an honorary Oscar in 2007, but that was not for “one individual movie.”)

Unsurprisingly, fans took the opportunity to correct Tarantino’s mistake, writing:

Ouch!

Do YOU think Tarantino was just caught up in the moment of glory? SOUND OFF in the comments (below)!
