[Gossip] Academy Award Nominee Claims Men Who Run Oscars Take Bribes
Posted by Joseph Lee on 03.01.2014



In an interview with The Independent, Julie Delpy, who is nominated for an Academy Award this year for Best Adapted Screenplay (Before Midnight with Ethan Hawke), criticized the Academy and claimed they took bribes. Here are highlights:

On award shows being meaningless: "We have the Golden Globes. If you could see it, you wouldn't believe that there's anything good about it. The same goes for the Oscars. It's 90 per cent white men over 70 who need money because they haven't done anything in a long time. You just need to give them two or three presents and they're in your pocket. It doesn't mean anything to me, so I don't really care if there are women in the selection process."

On the Weinstein's crushing real independent cinema: "I think they love cinema, but they also like to take a movie and give it an added value, then kill everything left behind. This has a lot to do with the Oscars. In the 90s, there were real independent movies, but they have slowly been crushed by the majors. The minute they take over something, they crush it."

On starring in Hollywood blockbusters: "I've made some big movies before already. C*** stuff like The Three Musketeers. Every time I've become a part of the Hollywood mainstream, it's been c***! Let's be honest: 90 per cent of movies made in Hollywood are c***."
