Samuel L. Jackson Covers British GQ / Opens Up On Academy Awards Politics

Published: Tuesday 10th Nov 2015 by David

The British arm of Gentlemen’s Quarterly welcomed Samuel L. Jackson to rock its December issue this month as he prepares to launch his latest movie ‘The Hateful Eight’ with Quentin Tarantino.

Hitting theatres on Christmas Day the American western film follows ‘Django Unchained’ which the actor now says pales in comparison to their latest effort.

He told the magazine:

I truly think it’s one of the best things he’s ever written, if not the best.

That isn’t all.

For, he also weighed in on his feelings towards the Academy Awards.

Find out what he said below…

Jackson had this to say when quizzed on the politics surrounding awards ceremonies:

What’s left to do is to be happy and work, as work is what makes me happy – to find projects that I want to do that still excite me… I feel that as long as I can entertain people and tell stories that are fantastic and fun and exciting, then I’ll continue to do this.”
Some people only do movies that are meaningful and that are going to come out during the Academy Awards season, but I’m not that person. I’ve done enough work now not to worry about getting an Academy Award.


Catch ‘Eight’ when it premieres on December 25th.

    That’s a 180 from what he said during the circuit of Django Unchained where he going on how the Golden Globes will nominate Leo Dicaprio because of his “brand” but when the Oscar nominations come out, he’ll be the one recognized for his work in that film. Neither were nominated and now Academy Awards just don’t matter. Samuel’s got an incredible career and is apart of some major franchises that will still be popular decades from now; that should be enough.
