He won his first ever Academy Award in 1995 for Best Original Screenplay for his now-cult classic Pulp Fiction, which was also nominated for six other Oscars including Best Director.

Eighteen years later, Quentin Tarantino has yet again taken the Oscars nominations by storm with five nods, including Best Picture for 'Django Unchained' and Best Supporting Actor for one of the film's stars, Christoph Waltz.

But Tarantino failed to be recognised in the Best Director category, and he told the BBC today: "Yeah, it bites a little bit. But then, I got it from the Baftas."

He was referring to this year's Bafta nominations, which has recognised Tarantino in the Best Director and Best Original Screenplay categories.

'Django Unchained' has been nominated for Best Picture at this year's Oscars, but he said if he won, it wouldn't be a big deal.

He said: "I don't think we're gonna win with this film, but the recognition and being invited to the party is a lot of fun."
