Upon learning what happened, Tarantino’s mother said something unmotivated to her son: ‘She said, ‘And by the way, that little writing career you’ve been trying to do is just over. When she said it to me in such a sarcastic way, I just thought, “When I become a successful screenwriter, you won’t see a penny of my success.”.
He even revealed a conversation he had with his mother about the potential gains from a successful film career: “There will be no new home for you, no Cadillac Elvis for my mother. You will not get anything. I would not have said that”.
Tarantino won Academy Awards in 1995 and 2013, with Pulp Fiction and Django Unchained respectively, both for Best Original Screenplay. He even won two Golden Globes with these two films, and two more with Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
