Will Quentin Tarantino win the Palme d’Or? The world-renowned movie director has got his eyes on the prize for sure. Indeed, after his film ‘Once Upon A Time In Hollywood’ was shown at the Festival, he was honoured with a standing ovation that lasted a whopping 7 minutes! Tarantino knows he’s got a good chance of winning now, and wants more than just the Palme d’Or for his film!

In the running for the Wamiz Palm Dog

During an interview at the Festival, Tarantino admitted he wasn’t really sure whether he deserved the prestigious Palme d’Or award for his film. In his opinion, the actors (who include Margot Robbie, Brad Pitt, and Leonardo DiCaprio) deserve it more than he does.

However, he didn’t hide his excitement at his hopes that Brandy, the brilliant pooch that played in this film, would win the Palm Dog!

“The Palme d’Or, I don’t know about, but I could see the Palm Dog for Brandy!” 

One talented actress

The beautiful, expressive dog plays Brad Pitt’s companion in the film. She definitely steals the show…even though she’s playing with some of the most brilliant (and let’s face it – hottest) actors in Hollywood!

Only one more day until we find out who will indeed win this fantastic doggy prize! In the meantime, let's just enjoy Tarantino's moment in the spotlight...
