Johnny Depp Says He Doesn't Want to Win an Oscar

Johnny Depp may have just ruined his chances at winning an Oscar in the future because he basically is telling the voters he doesn’t want them to vote for him.

“I don’t want to win one of those things ever, you know,” the 52-year-old actor told BBC.

“I don’t want to have to talk,” Johnny said about his reasoning for not wanting to win, presumably referring to having to give an acceptance speech.

“They gave me one of those things, like a nomination, two or three times,” he added. “A nomination is plenty… The idea of winning means that you’re in competition with someone and I’m not in competition with anybody. I just stick to my guns and do what I want to do. Sometimes people don’t like it but that’s alright.”

Johnny, who just landed at the top of IMDb’s list of the top 25 stars of all time, is one of the frontunners for an Oscar nomination in the Best Actor category this year for his work in the movie Black Mass.

  • Jenny from the flop

    The oscars are rigged. I dont blame him for trashing them. Seriously, its 5 old men sitting in a room deciding if youre worth a dumb ass trophy. No thanks. Better to have a career then a stupid trophy given by stupid men who doesnt know shit about acting

  • gradybridges

    Don’t worry. The way you’ve been picking movies and acting in them you’ll never be nominated.

    Oscars use to mean something… in the golden age of Hollywood.. Now not so much.. anyone with the right PR team can win one.

  • liss

    That´ why I love him so much

  • jady

    Well, if the Oscars were only about the performance, then it doesn’t matter what he says. He couldn’t ruin his Oscars chance because his brilliant performance in Black Mass will give him the chance anyway. But now we know he won’t campaign

  • donna

    Are you living in the past or something? His newest movie has gotten great reviews and he is incredible in it, that’s why he’s been getting Oscar buzz. He’ll be nominated.

    YES!

    Considering his last good movie was…. Oh gosh, I forgot. Was it the 90s?

    I doubt he is in any risk to win an Oscar. He has become his lame ass character of Jack Sparrow in real life. And for the love of God, wash your hair!
