Quote of the Day: Tom Wilkinson on the Oscars

Tom Wilkinson, who’s up for a Best Actor Oscar for In the Bedroom, on what he thinks his chances of winning will be, to Larry King:

“Well, I want to win, but it’s a lottery, and everybody knows it’s a lottery, and who knows which name is going to come out of the hat?

“And in a sense, you know, the Oscar is full of bad movies that have won Best Picture and brilliant acting performances that have been neglected and wonderful actors who’ve gone a whole lifetime without…winning an Oscar. So it’s a lottery. As long as you know that that’s what it is, then you just enjoy the ride.”
