Freeman: 'I Didn't Deserve My Oscar'

Veteran actor MORGAN FREEMAN insists he didn't deserve a Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his role in MILLION DOLLAR BABY last year (05), but was recognised because of his long history of losing.

Freeman - who missed out on three previous nominations for STREET SMART, DRIVING MISS DAISY and THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION - finds his earlier work more praise-worthy.

But he was delighted to finally be honoured, maintaining his track record made the decision inevitable.

He says, "I knew I'd win. They should have given it to me before so it was about time. It was a great story, a wonderful ensemble. I deserved it for other films, but not necessarily for that."
