The Master isn’t burning up the box office but it is garnering a lot of praise for Joaquin Phoenix, with many talking Oscar. However, Phoenix isn’t having that talk. In his usual firebrand fashion, he’s stated that the Academy Awaqrds are “total utter bullshit.” Well said!

Phoenix, who has avoided any press tour or politicking for The Master, now tells Interview magazine.

“Have you ever smoked a dog’s skeleton? Exhilarating.”

Oops. That’s actually not from Interview. That’s his outgoing voicemail. Here’s the actual quote.

“I’m just saying that I think it’s bullshit. I think it’s total, utter bullshit, and I don’t want to be a part of it. I don’t believe in it. It’s a carrot, but it’s the worst-tasting carrot I’ve ever tasted in my whole life. I don’t want this carrot. It’s totally subjective. Pitting people against each other…It’s the stupidest thing in the whole world,” he says. “It was one of the most uncomfortable periods of my life when Walk the Line was going through all the awards stuff and all that. I never want to have that experience again. I don’t know how to explain it—and it’s not like I’m in this place where I think I’m just above it—but I just don’t ever want to get comfortable with that part of things.”

Fair enough. Phoenix has been around long enough to play by his own rules and with two nominations under his belt, he has a suitable amount of perspective to inform his decision. Plus, once you have a guy poop on you, awards and superlatives really lose their luster. It changes a man.

With his film The Master saved from the blazes of Development Hell thanks to that cool billionaire chick, PT Anderson is ready to cast that sumbitch up. There’s news today that Jesse PlemonsFriday Night Lights“) and David Warshofsky (There Will Be Blood) have joined the cast as characters who may or may not be bludgeoned with a bowling pin.

Plemons will play the son of Philip Seymour Hoffman‘s cult leader and Warshofsky will play a detective in the Scientology-skewering film. These are undoubtedly career-boosting roles in a sure-to-be high profile film. Good for them. Too bad they’ll never work in this town again. (Variety)
