Samuel L. Jackson Says Finally Getting Oscars Was ‘No Big Deal,’ Exploded Recent Ceremony

Samuel L. Jackson finally received his first Academy Award last year—not that he’s checking one off on his legendary career.

Days before Will Smith was presented with his post-slap statuette, the actor was honored with an honorary Oscar at the Governor’s Awards, which he ultimately called “no big deal to me” in a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times. was” said.

“I was past it. I was never going to let the Oscars be the measure of my success or failure as an actor,” Jackson told the outlet. “The measure of my success is my happiness: what I do am I satisfied with it? I am not doing idol chasing films. you know [whispers]: ‘If you do this film, you’ll win an Oscar.'”

“No, thanks. I would rather be Nick Fury. Or having fun being Mace Windu with a lightsaber in my hand,” he said.

Jackson was previously awarded an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Quentin Tarantino’s “Pulp Fiction”, but the award eventually went to Martin Landau for “Ed Wood”. Since then he has never been nominated for any other performances.

“It’s the worst character I’ve ever played and they usually reward black people for playing terrible-,” he said.

But Oscar-fodder roles haven’t propelled Jackson’s career so far. He is known for starring in projects that “inspired me to go to the movies as a child.”

“I am satisfied because that is what I am. I am the guy who does the lines people see on T-shirts,” he said. “There are actors who go through their entire careers and nobody works by them in a film. Cannot quote a line that has been said.”

Denzel’s reason [Washington]reason for me, reason for danny [Glover]Everyone’s reason is that guy, and he deserves more than 10 f-seconds of your time. ,

Jackson criticized the decision to give screen time to various athletes paying tribute to James Bond on stage at the ceremony.

“They have their own show. They have ESPYs. Go do it,” he said. “This is the night that Hollywood celebrates f—Hollywood. When I was younger, looking at the thing we used to have and thinking, ‘What am I going to say when I get mine’ was the glamour, extravagance, mystery that is Hollywood. Some of that is gone. ,
