Two-Time Academy Award Nominee Joaquin Phoenix On The Oscars: "I Think It's Bullsh*t"

joaquin-oscars-230.jpgEvery since the first trailer came out for The Master, everyone has been buzzing about Joaquin Phoenix getting his third Oscar nod for his performance in the Paul Thomas Anderson-directed flick, but apparently he just doesn't care.

"I think it's bullsh*t," Phoenix said in the latest issue of Interview Magazine. "I think it's total, utter bullsh*t, and I don't want to be a part of it. I don't believe in it. It's a carrot, but it's the worst-tasting carrot I've ever tasted in my whole life. I don't want this carrot. It's totally subjective. Pitting people against each other ... It's the stupidest thing in the whole world."

In 2000, Phoenix was nominated in the Best Supporting Actor category for Gladiator, and in 2005 he earned a nod for Best Lead Actor for his role opposite Reese Witherspoon in Walk the Line.

"It was one of the most uncomfortable periods of my life when Walk the Line was going through all the awards stuff and all that," Phoenix added. "I never want to have that experience again. I don't know how to explain it -- and it's not like I'm in this place where I think I'm just above it -- but I just don't ever want to get comfortable with that part of things."

Hmm, did he just knock himself out of the race before it began?
