In addition to Tarantino, the movie's stars Jamie Foxx and Christoph Waltz -- who is from Vienna, just 500 miles north of Rome -- were on hand for the premiere. They were joined by Franco Nero, a Rome resident and the star of the original Django, and Ennio Morricone, the five-time Oscar-winning composer whose music is closely tied with the Spaghetti Western genre. Morricone was scheduled to present Tarantino with the award.
