Scorsese cool over awards buzz

Martin Scorsese is being very cool about his Oscar and BAFTA nominations for Best Director.

The legendary filmmaker says he doesn't deserve to be considered the best - and can't understand why people are so enthusiastic about his 'Gangs Of New York' epic:

"People say 'oh Marty, this is an extraordinary work' and that sort of thing. And I say 'you haven't seen as many films as I have'. I know where the levels are, I know where they are man. I'm just doing the best I can and working in my own area. But when I gauge myself against, in my mind, people who are on a level, there's no way I can come near that."

He has said that he would like to make another musical, especially now that 'Chicago' has done so well:

"Oh I'd love to do a musical at some point, yeah. The musical I tried 'New York, New York', was more of a drama with music. And it was sort of an evolution I thought of the musical genre. But it just didn't go over that way, it wasn't well received. And I did everything I could there. But there might be another way, another kind of musical. I love music in film."

The BAFTAs take place in London on Sunday and Martin will be there alongside Daniel Day Lewis, Nicholas Cage, Nicole Kidman, Renee Zellweger and Catherine Zeta Jones.

The Oscars are handed out next month in Hollywood.

So nice to see modesty in a filmmaker. But no I really think he believes that, I don't know, maybe he's right. I still hope he wins.

I think for an accomplished director, it is more of an honor to have never won best director than to do so. The club of who never won is much more prestiguous than those who have.

At wave level, everything exists as a contradiction. Everything is existing in more than one stage/place at any given moment. Everything must move/vibrate and constantly change to exist. Everything, including buildings, mountains, oceans and thoughts.
