Matt Damon: the Oscars are wrong more than they’re right
Matt Damon has said he thinks the Oscars often reward the wrong films because they so often praise the most recent big film.
Matt, who won shared the Best Screenplay Oscar in 1998 with Ben Affleck for Good Will Hunting, told Parade magazine recently: “I think that the best way to judge movies is, like, 10 years after they’re released. I think they should actually do the awards that way.
“I think they should have done the Academy Awards this year for movies from 1998. I think it’s better to look at a movie and then step back and look at it again.
“I don’t think that the awards necessarily get it right. I think they get it wrong more often than they get it right.”
