LOS ANGELES - Christoph Waltz on Sunday won his second Oscar for Best Supporting Actor in four years under the direction of Quentin Tarantino, this time as a German bounty hunter in the slave revenge tale "Django Unchained."

"We participated in a hero's journey, the hero here being Quentin," a choked up Waltz said as he accepted his award.

The Austrian actor first burst into Hollywood as a charming yet evil Nazi colonel in Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds," and walked away with the Academy's supporting statuette in 2010.

Waltz's win Sunday gives him an enviable career record of two Oscars for two nominations. He also prevailed this year over veteran Hollywood names like Robert De Niro and Tommy Lee Jones and clinched a nomination while "Django" co-stars Jamie Foxx and Leonardo DiCaprio did not.
