Q.Two Oscars out of the last three years, how does that make you feel?
A.Guess. It was, I think, like five minutes ago, I got this, or seven. I was on a list with greatest actors around, with Robert De Niro, with Alan Arkin, with Tommy Lee Jones with Philip Seymour Hoffman. How do you think someone feels when all of a sudden his name is called in that context? I can’t tell you. I’m sorry.
Q.So, this is the second, Best Supporting Actor Oscar that you’ve gotten for work by Quentin Tarantino. Has he talked to you about a third role in his revisionist history trilogy?
A.No. As I said, this is about seven minutes old. Somehow I failed to catch the moment to remind Quentin that I’m around.
