Recently, Ethan revealed that he was not feeling let down by losing the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor to JK Simmons.

“So much mediocrity is strung up the flagpole. I’d rather not win,” he told the London Evening Standard. “One of my acting ambitions is to beat Peter O’Toole who got eight nominations and never won.”

    “So much mediocrity is strung up the flagpole” He ain’t lying

    “So much mediocrity is strung up the flagpole”
    This is what happens when awards became just another part of marketing and for future projects in the pipeline. Tweaking of metascores through pr web flooding.

    He’s a DBAG ! He thinks he’s better then everyone else.

    He’s not lying! Look at all the payoffs for the Oscar buzz on Aniston for a crap movie and lackluster performance. Thankfully, the buck & joke stopped at the GG. The Oscars saved some shred of integrity by not being bullied into given away a token Oscar nom or statue to the very undeserving.

    He’s saying the truth tbh

    Don’t shoot the messenger.

    i can tell you from seeing his movies, he doesn’t have to worry

  • PM2901

    Cameron Diaz used to scream from the mountain tops that she never wanted to get married. The truth is, NO ONE was asking. The second a Good Charlotte asked, she got married days later (before he changed his mind). Ethan’s proclamation is the male equivalent.

    Ethan sits on the edge of his seat at every awards show wishing they’d say his name. For the record, I’m a huge Ethan Hawke fan. However, he sometimes annoys with statements like that. Just admit you’d like to win. He’s a typical insecure actor. Talented and HOT, but insecure.
