The experience of being in one of Quentin’s films and a part of this phenomenal cast was rewarding in and of itself, but to be honored by such an incredible institution as the Capri-Hollywood Film Festival makes it all the more meaningful,' the actress said afterwards. 'I am flattered beyond words to be recognized by them this year,' she added. Italian composer Ennio Morricone won Best Musical Score for the Western-themed revenge flick.
The award marks a comeback for Leigh, 53, who has struggled during the past decade to recreate the success of her early career with hits such as Backdraft, Dolores Claiborne, Georgia and Single White Female.
Honored: Samuel L. Jackson was given the festival's Best Actor Award for his performance in The Hateful Eight
