Joaquin Phoenix Disses Oscars, Calls It ‘Utter Bull Sh*t’


NEW YORK (TRP) – You can bet that Joaquin Phoenix won’t be attending this year’s Oscars, or next years, or the Oscars after that.

Apparently the actor doesn’t think much of Hollywood’s “biggest night.”

In a very candid chat with Interview magazine, Phoenix rips the Academy Awards a new one, calling the annual gathering  “the stupidest thing in the whole world.”

Oh wait, its gets better.

Joaquin, who ironically is getting tremendous Oscar buzz for his performance in “The Master” goes on to say, “I think it’s total, utter bullshit, and I don’t want to be a part of it.”

“It’s a carrot, but it’s the worst-tasting carrot I’ve ever tasted in my whole life. I don’t want this carrot.”

Joaquin also revealed that his past experience with award season – back in 2005 when he was nominated for “Walk The Line” – was one of the “most uncomfortable periods of my life.”

The interview where Joaquin holds nothing back, appears in the October issue of Interview on newsstands now.
