The problem with certain festivals, the people in charge always choose the same people. They choose their friends, even if the movie’s crap. That’s what annoys me the most. But a festival is a festival: awards, prizes, decorations. You need to see who votes and who chooses the movies.
We have the Golden Globes. If you could see it, you wouldn’t believe that there’s anything good about it. The same goes for the Oscars. It’s 90 per cent white men over 70 who need money because they haven’t done anything in a long time.
You just need to give them two or three presents and they’re in your pocket. It doesn’t mean anything to me, so I don’t really care if there are women in the selection process."
