“My father gave me two gifts – having me and dying with me. I used to be the kid that got the shakes if I had to talk in public; now, I just don’t get nervous about stuff. I can’t control everything. I don’t want to win an Oscar. It would change nothing. Nothing. The things in my life that aren’t fulfilled would not be fulfilled. Career-wise, right now, it’s better that I don’t win one. I don’t want to win. I don’t.”

Sounds like someone justifying the fact, that they know they could never ever win, so they make it sound like they don't care if they ever win, that it's not important or necessary for them to win.

He already did that and he still didn't win. That's why he is sure he is never going to win and he is acting that he doesn't care.

He's never going to win one anyway. He was nominated because of the movie and the role. Almost anyone could have rode that wave.

I bet he was responding to a question in the interview.
I doubt that he went out of his way to talk about this.

I can't fathom why he had two tons of greasy brill cream slicking his hair back at the Oscars.
It looked horrid.

I like him, but he sure did campaign hard for a guy who doesn't care about Oscar. Very convenient he didn't care when it was apparent months ago that DDL probably won at least 85% of the vote, LOL.

He's dead? Saying his father died with him implies they died together.
Hopefully he'll never be in serious contention for an Oscar.

He reminds me of that girl in the movie "Fame" who dances with Leroy and then doesn't get in and he does. She makes that big foul mouthed speech about who wants to go to a stupid school to learn how to dance anyway. (and then you see tears in her eyes)

Why? He's a good actor. If he continues on his current trajectory he will probably win one. I see him going more toward character parts. His looks won't last. He looks a lot like his Dad and he was really jowly, I see Brad's looks going the same way.

I'm sure Leo would disagree. I bet he's dying to win one. Can someone please make a thread about why Oscar has not come calling for Leo. He has been nominated several times and yet he does not seem like he's a favorite in the way Clooney or Depp (even though he has not won either) still he gets a lot of smoke blown up his ass. So, why no love from the Hollywood Oscar makers for Leo?
|by Anonymous||reply 27||03/04/2013|
I think Bradley was so damned happy to be nominated he gave truth to that cliche'. He was realistic. No one was going to take that Oscar from Daniel Day Lewis. There was a bit of rumbling about Hugh Jackman for a minute because he is so popular with voters and people love him.
Bradley isn't "beloved." He's been around for a while, and just now hitting his stride. And tell me again, what does a nomination mean in real terms? Terrence Howard was nominated for an Oscar. I can think of a dozen more who have careers but they aren't setting the world on fire. They cause no excitement.
When I read about Daniel Day Lewis accepting a film role I get excited. He is a master. Bradley is a very competitive person, but he is not dumb.

Leo's never won an Oscar because he's never been more than merely competent. He's just not a great actor who really moves you, and neither is he particularly charming so you feel compelled to give it to him.

Hey, I happen to like the guy. Is there anyone in the universe you people don't trash? If so, they must be few and far between.
|by Anonymous||reply 30||03/04/2013|
I don't dislike Bradley, and I'm not trashing him. I just happened to think he spoke the truth. I truly believe after all these years, Bradley's just "glad to be here." if there ever was a year when it was safe to get nominated and lose, this was the year. No one begrudges DDL his Oscar.
Plus, consider that the Oscars get it wrong at least as often as they get it right. Right now we can all think of actors & Directors and movies who never got an Oscar. For work that was truly deserving of an Oscar.
I wish they'd change the way they vote. I think with some of these ild farts they need to really tie the voting to how many movies you've see. There should be a way to validate your vote.
There should also be a requirement that if you haven't voted or seen the nominated films for more than three years, you are ineligible. Tighten things up. Make it more legit.

I read he's an Oscar contender next year for "The Place Beyond the Pines" and maybe for "Serena." I wonder if he still won't care if he's a favorite to win.

I get what he's saying. But I could see how some may think he's being obnoxious. I don't think he's dissing the Oscars.
|by Anonymous||reply 34||03/04/2013|
I think he has a point that there are some career opps that are more likely to go to those who have not yet won an oscar and are seen as somewhat likely to win one when the right role next comes along. A true oscar worthy role - isn't it often likely to go to someone who hasn't won yet who will be seen as due? Isn't that a calculation taken into account in casting - if we get Michelle Williams it may finally win her the oscar and we'll reap the rewards of that at the box office? If we give the role to Natalie Portman who's recently won, that is less likely...
I can easily see someone like Cooper's career being hotter coming off a non-win in SLP than coming off a win.
|by Anonymous||reply 35||03/04/2013|
Makes sense. Can you imagine the backlash if he'd won it over DDL? It would've been a career-destroyer. He's got Place Beyond The Pines coming out soon, so people will know his performance in Silver Linings Playbook was no fluke. He's got great directors wanting to work with him, he'll be ok as long as he keeps making smart choices.

When you look at the performances that have been nominated in the past few years, it seems the Academy has had a difficult time even piecing together five strong contenders to face off against each other in each major category. In Hollywood today, I'd much rather be cast in a goofy three-part blockbuster that has nothing to do with talent but pays my ass into old age than to win an Oscar in times that are a mockery to the golden era of films. I bet Cuba Gooding Jr. would prefer some consistent, high paying work to an Oscar win people snicker about.
