The evening’s first award went to Christoph Waltz for his Supporting Actor role as Col. Hans Landa, the alarmingly cunning Nazi who outsmarts even the Third Reich – though, ultimately, not Brad Pitt’s backwoods Lt. Aldo Raines – in director Quentin Tarantino’s WWII fantasy, Inglourious Basterds.
Winning an Oscar – and accepting it from presenter Pénelope Cruz – was, said Waltz, “über Bingo.” He compared making this movie and working with Tarantino to exploring “a new continent,” and he acknowledged the Academy for “your welcoming embrace, and there’s no way I can ever thank you enough, but I can start right now. Thank you.”
Previously unknown outside his native Austria despite a 30-year screen career a fluency in three languages, Waltz, 53, has been catapulted to international stardom by Basterds. Asked this weekend by an Austrian interviewer if all this attention has changed his life, Waltz replied, “Only that I am still standing with my two feet on the ground is the same. Otherwise everything has changed in my life.”

10 + 4 +1+9+5+6 = 35 = his life lesson = what he is here to learn = Persevere. Be prepared. Forewarned is forearmed. Hang in there. The long haul. Strength in adversity. Strength in reserve. Keep on doing what you’re doing. Stick with it. Never give up. Not giving up. Don’t quit. Don’t stop.
10 + 4 +2+0+0+9 = 25 = his personal year (from October 4th, 2009 to October 3rd, 2010) = Adventure. Excitement. Thrilling. On the go. Movement. Exploring.
25 year + 3 (March) = 28 = his personal month (from March 4th, 2010 to April 3rd, 2010)
28 month + 7 (7th of the month on Sunday March 7th, 2010) = 35 = his personal day = Persevere. Be prepared. Forewarned is forearmed. Hang in there. The long haul. Strength in adversity. Strength in reserve. Keep on doing what you’re doing. Stick with it. Never give up. Not giving up. Don’t quit. Don’t stop.
When his number (35 (10 +4 +1+9+5+6 = 35)) comes up, that’s when he gets to live/experience what he is here to live/experience. So this was HIS day!!!
