Samuel L. Jackson is unfazed by Hollywood awards, insisting he doesn't need an Oscar to seal his success.
Bing: 'Django' draws attention
The actor has received plenty of critical acclaim for his role as a slave in Quentin Tarantino's Western "Django Unchained," but he was snubbed from the Academy Awards shortlist when the nominations were announced. Jackson, who previously landed an Oscars nom for his turn in 1994's "Pulp Fiction," is adamant the snub doesn't upset him.
When asked if he's bothered about awards, he says, "No, not particularly. I've had a pretty good career. I don't think it will validate my stature in Hollywood one way or another. I've done some pretty interesting things, and it's been a long and rich career. It's definitely not going to help my box office record!"
I'm surprised he didn't win for Snakes on a Plane. How can he be taken seriously after that??
