Helen Mirren: Oscars are a Crap Shoot

Helen Mirren: Oscars are a Crap Shoot

Dame Helen Mirren signs copies of her illustrated memoir, “In The Frame: My Life In Words And Pictures” at the Waterstones Book Shop in London on Friday.

The 62-year-old actress recently downplayed winning awards after her Emmy triumph earlier this week (for her role in Prime Suspect: The Final Act on PBS). Mirren said on a UK radio show, “I never thought ever that I’d win an Oscar. (She won one for The Queen.) I think it’s all a bit of a crap shoot… the whole awards thing is becoming a marketing tool so it doesn’t really mean anything. The important thing is survival.”

That’s alright. You don’t need awards, Helen. You are a sexy beast!!!!

15+ pictures inside of Ms. Mirren looking gorgeous as usual…

    she’s a very good actress but i don’t think she was very honest about the oscars thing. She can say whatever she wants but i bet she wanted to win and that at that time she was praying for it! lol.. but go on with the good work helen!

    She didn’t say she didn’t want to win.. She said she didn’t expec to because, as even Clint Eastwood said: Win an oscar has nothing to do with deserve”. And fantastic Helen knows that.. but of course she loved.

    Well, if she thinks ” Oscars are a Crap Shoot “, why didn’t she do like Marlon Brando ? Instead, she seemed veeeerrryyy pleased to be there. This kind of statement is such a hypocritical one !
