British actor Gary Oldman has branded the Golden Globe awards "meaningless" and is calling for a boycott of the Hollywood awards show next February.
The Dark Knight star blasted the Hollywood Foreign Press Association's (HFPA) annual event in a candid new interview with Playboy magazine, describing the event as "ridiculous" and vowing not to attend.
He tells the publication, "(It is) a meaningless event. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association is kidding you that something's happening. They're ridiculous. There's nothing going on at all. It's 90 nobodies... Everybody's getting drunk, and everybody's sucking up to everybody. Boycott the (expletive) thing."
The one-time Oscar-nominee also blasted the precarious nature of voting during Hollywood's awards season, adding, "At the Oscars, if you didn't vote for 12 Years A Slave, you were a racist. You have to be very careful about what you say. I do have particular views and opinions that most of this town doesn't share, but it's not like I'm a fascist or a racist. There's nothing like that in my history..." Copyright WENN.com
