David Cronenberg talks about disconnecting from Oscar "bullsh*t": "Every year I try to be as disconnected as possible. This year it's been very easy because ['Cosmopolis' hasn't] been nominated for any awards. It's not sour grapes, it's not compensation; it's a relief. It's very easy to get caught up in it if you are nominated. The people who are releasing the movie get excited, they want you to do more, and you understand it because the awards can maybe get more people to see the film. This, on its face, is a good thing. However, it is all bullshit, it is all annoying and it is all very problematical. But it gives people stuff to write about, gives structure, we understand. But I won't be watching any of the awards shows." MOVIELINE
