Goofs:
Audio/Video Mismatch
When Butch pulls a shotgun on Django and Dr. Schultz at Calvin's dinner table, he pulls out his revolver to point at the Doctor. Yet in the next cut he is pointing only the shotgun at Django, then the next cut he is again holding both weapons.

Audio/Video Mismatch
At the start of the movie, it is stated that the year is 1858. Winter comes and passes, so the year should change to 1859, however on all documents, the year 1858 is still being printed.

Audio/Video Mismatch
When Django and Dr. King Schultz ride in to Candyland for the first time the fields in front of the gates are harvested/cut. When Django and Broomhilda leave Candyland together the fields have tall grass.

Audio/Video Mismatch
During the bar scene in town while drinking beer discussing what a bounty hunter is, both characters glasses have different amounts in between various shots.

Crew/Equipment Visible
When Dr. Schultz is casually mentioning to Hildy that there is a "friend" on the other side of the door behind her, many reflections of activity by the crew and camera are seen reflected in the glossy bedpost behind Schultz, as he sits in his chair. Neither character, in this scene, is moving.

Errors in Geography
In the film there is a cotton plantation located in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. This region (The Grand Division of East Tennessee) is very mountainous and inhospitable for cotton, preventing large plantations from arising. As a result, the region had a low slave population which translated to anti-slavery and pro-Union sentiments in the years leading to the Civil War.

Factual Mistake
The film's opening title states that the time is 1858, 2 years before the Civil War. But the war began in 1861, which is 3 years later.
Trivia:
When Leonardo DiCaprio's character Calvin Candie smashes the palm of his hand on the dinner table, the actor broke a glass under his hand and really began to bleed. DiCaprio ignored it, stayed in character, and continued with the scene. This take was the one used in the film.

During the filming of one of the dinner scenes, Leonardo DiCaprio had to stop the scene because he was having "a difficult time" using so many racial slurs. Samuel L. Jackson then pulled him aside telling him, "Motherfucker, this is just another Tuesday for us."

After working on this film, composer Ennio Morricone said he would probably never again collaborate with Quentin Tarantino since he didn't like the way the writer/director "places music in his films without coherence" and "never giving enough time". Morricone and Tarantino had also worked together on three previous movies.

Leonardo DiCaprio, whose role marked the first time he played a villain since The Man in the Iron Mask (1998), was uncomfortable with how horrible and explicitly racist his character was. However, Quentin Tarantino convinced him to be as menacing as possible, saying that if he didn't take it all the way, people would hold it against him forever.

In an interview, Quentin Tarantino stated that originally the mandingo fight scene and the scene with the dogs were longer and more violent. He said he felt like he was going to "traumatize" the audience, so he cut both scenes down.

At 1 hour, 6 minutes, and 17 seconds, Christoph Waltz's performance in this movie is the longest to ever win an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.

The US$12,000 paid for Broomhilda's freedom equates to just over US$318,000 in 2013 dollars.

The Italian song playing right before Django and Broomhilda reunite translates as "If you see me, will you remember me..."
