Bill Murray has a new interview with the Associated Press where he talks about his career, and particular, losing an Oscar for his universally acclaimed performance in ‘Lost in Translation’. Murray won every single major award leading up to the Oscars, and then didn’t win the Oscar.
When speaking about the experience, Murray says, “"You can't get all ramped up and amped up about this thing all the time. I mean, I got excited about it once, and it was odd. I won all the prizes, I won literally all the prizes all the way up to the last one. And I really thought, well, 'I've just to go get this thing, I'll be right back.'
"And then I didn't win, and I thought, 'Well, that's odd. How odd is that? I'm feeling so odd now.' And I came all dressed up and didn't win. So I'm not going to get all crazy about that."
He also adds, “"It was OK that I didn't win, and I don't have any hard feelings about it. It was like, 'OK, that was cool, I'm fine. I'm fine with the way my career's gone. I'm happy with it. It's gone great. The great thing about the Oscars that's cool is it means people are going to see your movie. That's really the deal."
