Quentin Tarantino, who delves into Deep South history in his revenge saga “Django Unchained,” says slavery continues in the United States after the Civil War. It has just taken on a different form.
“If you go to Malaysia, there’s sexual slavery going on in places like that, but I’m more concerned about the slavery that is going on in America,” Tarantino said backstage at Sunday’s Golden Globes. “The drug laws that have put so many black males in jail that wouldn’t have existed in the `70s, that is slavery. It is just straight up slavery as far as I’m concerned.”
Tarantino won the screenplay award at the Globes for “Django.”

Shooting a musical with more than 200 actors, someone was bound to lose their voice.
For “Les Miserables,” that was Sacha Baron Cohen, and it caused a shutdown of production at one point.
“Only one man proved himself not to have the vocal stamina,” the film’s director, Tom Hooper, revealed at Sunday’s Golden Globes.
“Ladies and gentlemen, Sacha Baron Cohen.”
Baron Cohen’s reaction to the revelation: He bowed and curtseyed.
