    This year, he even attended the annual Hanukkah kids' show Festigal in Tel Aviv, which featured his father-in-law, Israeli musician Tsvika Pik.
    During his acceptance speech, Tarantino dedicated his win to Robert Bolt, "the dean of screenwriters," while also congratulating himself for solely writing the script of Once Upon a Time. "I did it," he told the audience.

    Tarantino also thanked the film's "fantastic" cast, noting they took the script "from the page and had to add a slightly different layer from the page."
    A few shout-outs went to Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio and Julia Butters, as well as to Margot Robbie, who the director noted brought "more goodness than a movie I had ever been involved in."
    Pitt's award was his first acting Globe since winning in 1996 for "12 Monkeys," padding his front-runner status for the Oscars.
    "I wanted to bring my mom, but I couldn't because any woman I stand next to they say I am dating so it'd just be awkward," Pitt said.
