When we were making the movie, winning awards for it wasn't the point at all. We didn't even have an American distributor.
Submitting myself for awards feels like a weird kind of horn-blowing that's not comfortable for me. I'm really happy when someone likes my work, but I don't like marketing myself, putting myself on display.
Because of the audience I get and the fact that these people aren't traditional comics buyers I don't think the comic industry looks at that and thinks that is a very respectable thing. I'm very used to it. I'm not the guy who wins awards and gets mentioned in magazines.
BET, I'll never, never, ever forget them for this wonderful blessing they gave to me, to be on the 10th annual BET awards for my comeback.
It's always fun to think about winning an award. I thought about winning awards when I was a little girl. Everybody wants to win an award for something.
I use my awards as doorstops. Others are in the office or in little cubbyholes in our library - they go between the books, because they actually look like arty pieces.
It doesn't matter who you are, how many awards you've won, how popular you are, or how much critical acclaim you've had.
I don't know how many bestsellers I've got, or half the awards I've won, and I don't really care. I'm just having fun, doing something I love and getting paid for it. How cool is that?

I actually ran into Justin Bieber when nobody knew him at the Kids' Choice Awards. He came up to me like, 'Mr. Crews, how you doing? I'm produced by Usher and I just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Justin Bieber,' and I just knew he was a good, nice kid. Next year, people are screaming and attacking him!
Awards shows are my greatest inducement to get back into shape.
I've seen some great write ups and I emailed her the other night because I saw her on an awards show recently.
I've been lucky enough to travel the world and win awards and medals, but it was time to stop.

I used to only worry about the #1's and all of the awards. But that was a long time ago.
Especially when it comes to something like the awards, I find it kind of baffling that 'True Blood' has been snubbed so many times given the incredible range of acting they have on there; I mean, incredible storytelling and the incredible production values.
You don't really work for awards, but when they come it's... nice.
I was on the set of 'Braveheart' and my mate says to me, 'Do you think this film will be any good?' And I really meant this, too, I told him 'Let me put it this way - It won't win any awards.' Cut to: five Oscars.
I was doing the 'Vogue' fashion awards when I was 16, live on VH1. I was coming down the steps, and I'm a really hard walker. I hadn't had a mistake yet in my career. Everything had been perfect. So I come down the steps on live TV, and I slip. I didn't fall, but you could see the look on my face. I was mortified. I was devastated.
I am honoured that my fans worked so hard to help me win Best Act Ever at the 2008 MTV Europe Music Awards.
Even if you're doing the national insurance awards, there's still that excitement when you wonder who is going to win, er, best premiums.
I don't want anyone to get seriously hurt. But I do watch awards shows to critique the clothes while I sit around eating chips in my sweat pants and in hopes of seeing some hilarious accidental nudity.
Joe Morgan was the one guy that absolutely put our team really over the top. ... Then we had George Foster come in; Ken Griffey Sr. was as good a two-place hitter as there has ever been in the game, and Cesar Geronimo won four Gold Glove awards. I mean, how could you ask for a better team?
For my second and third pictures, I won Academy Awards. Nothing worse could have happened to me.
I was one of the horses of the Louis B. Mayer stable, and I thought the films I was given after my Academy Awards were not worthy.
Oh yeah, I'm about to host the Genies, which are the Canadian Academy Awards.
I'm really into the irony of writing vaguely radical plays that instantly win huge establishment awards. It's really amusing.
