Oscar quote of the day: Matt Damon on bad award choices

February 17, 2011 |  1:40 pm

"I think they get it wrong more often than they get it right," Matt Damon said of the Oscars in a 2009 interview with Parade. Not that he's offering to return his Oscar or anything -- Damon won the Academy Award for original screenplay for his 1997 film with Ben Affleck, "Good Will Hunting." This year, he didn't get a supporting actor nomination for his role in "True Grit," which received 10 nominations.
