Samuel L.Jackson opens up about the Oscars and speaks on why he believes he should have won for his role in the 1994 classic “Pulp Fiction.”
In a recent interview, Jackson said “I should have won.” He then went on to say that he should have been nominated for his role in Spike Lee’s Jungle Fever and say that he was stunned when he was beaten out by other cast members.
“Damn! They got nominated and I didn’t? I guess black folk usually win for doing despicable s*** on screen. Like Denzel for being a horrible cop in Training Day. All the great stuff he did in uplifting roles like Malcolm X? No- we’ll give it to this motherfu**er. So maybe I should have won one. But Oscars don’t move the comma on your cheque- it’s about getting assess in seats and I’ve done a good job of doing that.”
On March 25th, Samuel L. Jackson will be awarded an Honorary Oscar at the 2022 Governors Awards and the 94th Academy Awards will take place on March 27th.
