When it comes to his view on the Oscars, Matt Damon treads a fine line in a new interview with Parade.com, saying he’s not sure the Academy knows what they’re doing.
"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," he says. "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."
Odd, since he and pal Ben Affleck won the award for Best Original Screenplay in 1998. So maybe he shouldn’t have gotten his nod?
"I don’t think that the awards necessarily get it right. I think they get it wrong more often than they get it right."
