“I wasn’t going to let the Oscars be the measure of my success or failure as an actor. My measure of success is my happiness: am I satisfied with what I’m doing? I’m not doing idol-chasing films.” you know [whispers]: ‘If you do this film, you will win an Oscar.’ no, thanks. I’d rather be Nick Fury. Or enjoy having Mess Windu with a lightsaber in my hand.”

Like Denzel [Washington] To be a terrible cop in ‘Training Day’. He called ‘Malcolm X?’ Did all the great things in uplifting roles like that. No – we’ll give it to this bastard. So maybe I should have won one. But the Oscars don’t put a comma on your check — it’s about getting ass in the seats and I did a good job of doing that.”

In the same discussion, he turned his attention to Spider-Man: No Way Home, Jackson said of Marvel Smash, “They should have an Oscar for Most Popular Film. Because that’s what the business is about.” “It did what movies have always done – it took people into a big dark room.”

“All movies are valid,” said the star. “Some go to the cinema. Some prefer superheroes. If someone has more butts on the seats it means your audience is not as wide. There are people who have had successful careers but no one does their part. I can’t read a line of that. I’m the guy who says he’s on the T-shirt.”
