Oprah Winfrey says she’s not the “slightest bit upset” about her Oscar snub. The Butler star, who didn’t receive a single Academy Award nomination this year, says it feels like she’s already won.
“I really look at that category and look who is nominated in that category: my friend Julia (Roberts) and June (Squibb), whom I don’t know, but Sally Hawkins and Jennifer (Lawrence) and Lupita (Nyong’o.) I think that’s fantastic,” she told reporters at the 2014 Critics’ Choice Movie Awards. “I haven’t picked up the acting chops in 15 years. So to be able to be a part of a film that could get that kind of attention, that could earn the kind of audience respect that it has, I’ve been saying all along, ‘I’ve already won. I already won.’”
“If anybody sees or reads anything that says I was the slightest bit upset…I had no expectation for a nomination,” she continued. “I really didn’t. I think I was the only person who didn’t in my group. And I just feel like, wow. What an amazing thing I got to do that. I really do.”
During an interview with Access Hollywood, the media mogul reiterated that she was not “robbed at all.”
“How dare anybody say that I was robbed … Robbed? Are you kidding? Never, never, never,” she insisted. “There are wonderful films, and the fact that you have so many films that you can’t even get people in all the categories. And the fact that I, actually, after 15 years was able to actually do it…That’s what’s so wonderful about the Oscars.”
Mama Oprah is always so humble.
