‘I guess I don’t really care’ Carell on Os­car recog­ni­tion

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - COVER STORY -

Care ll has suc­cess­fully tran­si­tioned into Os­car-worthy drama, but he re­mains ag­nos­tic on the no­tion that com­edy is over­looked dur­ing awards sea­son.

“I guess I don’ t really care. Maybe you care if you start mak­ing movies to be recog­nised or to get crit­i­cal ac claim. It might sound like a cliché, but I feel if there’ s a really good story to tell ora really good di­rec­tor to work with, then I’ m in­ter­ested. Idon’t care if it’ s a com­edy or a drama. I don’ t un­der­stand when peo­ple get het up about the fact that come­dies aren’ t re­warded when awards sea­son comes around. I feel you are really for­tu­nate that you get to act, that you get to be in movies in the first place, that you get to cre­ate some­thing that peo­ple might like to re­spond to. I think that’ s enough re­ward. You don’ t need any other ac­co­lades.”
