Personal Quote:

[accepting his Golden Globe for The Last Emperor (1987)] I always thought The Last Emperor was almost an impossible project - because of China, because of the cost, because of no major stars in the movie; to be here with five nominations is the proof that although it's the story of a unique destiny, of a Chinaman, the movie goes beyond, can be understood everywhere.

Trivia:

When the Italian Bertolucci was Oscar-nominated as Best Director for The Last Emperor (1987) (and won), his Best Director fellow nominees were all non-Americans: Adrian Lyne and John Boorman (UK), Lasse Hallström (Sweden) and Norman Jewison (Canada) making that particular instance unique in Oscar history.
