Joaquin Phoenix Says Goodbye To Oscar Chances, Calls Awards “Total Utter Bullshit”

I’m just saying that I think it’s bullshit. I think it’s total, utter bullshit, 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,” he says.

Joaquin Phoenix can’t be bothered to attend the Oscars gala.
