'Django Unchained' Wins Original Screenplay

'Django Unchained' Wins Original Screenplay

Quentin Tarantino took home the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay for Django Unchained. 

He then went on to thank presenter Dustin Hoffman in a rather awkward way, but this ceremony is plenty of those, so whatevs... I kind of wanted Zero Dark Thirty to win, but maybe it will fare better later in the ceremony? Here are the people Tarantino beat out. Are you surprised? I can't decide: 

John Gatins, Flight

Mark Boal, Zero Dark Thirty

Michael Haneke, Amour

Wes Anderson and Roman Coppola, Moonrise Kingdom
