Hawke calls Oscars 'destructive'

Feb 22 2013, 1:54pm CST | by

Los Angeles, Feb 23 (IANS) Actor Ethan Hawke thinks the Oscars are "destructive" because they turn the art of filmmaking into a competition.

Los Angeles, Feb 23 — Actor Ethan Hawke thinks the Oscars are "destructive" because they turn the art of filmmaking into a competition.

The 42-year-old has previously received two Academy Award nominations - for best supporting actor category for his performance in 2002 film "Training Day", and in the best adapted screenplay category for "Before Sunset" in 2004.

However, he doesn't like the way the Academy Awards force films into being ranked, reports contactmusic.com.

"People want to turn everything in this country (America) into a competition. So it's clear who the winner is and who the loser is. It's why they like to announce the grosses of movies, because it's a way of saying, 'This one is Number One' It's so asinine," he told Gotham magazine.

"If you look at how many forgettable, stupid movies have won Oscars and how many mediocre performers have Oscars above their fireplace. Making a priority of chasing these fake carrots and money and dubious accolades, I think it's really destructive," he added.

Rumor: Ewan McGregor Could Be DOCTOR STRANGE

Oct 14 2014 5:55pm CDT | Source: Collider

Ah, the casting saga of Doctor Strange continues.  I'm sure whoever director Scott Derrickson casts in the role will be great, but it's interesting to see the wide breadth of names being mentioned for the part.  Derrickson and Marvel had been dancing with Joaquin Phoenix for a while before he dropped out and a lot of the subsequent online fan casting has mentioned names like Keanu Reeves and Ethan Hawke. One of the names those fan casters haven't brought up ...

Oct 2 2014 1:45pm CDT | Source: slash film

Back to the drawing board. Marvel Studios has been working to sign a deal with Joaquin Phoenix to put the actor in costume as Doctor Strange, but those talks have now ended with no deal made. We first started to hear rumblings of that casting choice over the summer, and there was a point where it seemed like Marvel might even be able to announce Phoenix as Strange at Comic Con. But that never happened, and now months later the ta ...
