Murray Not Interested In Oscar

Movie funnyman BILL MURRAY has no desire to win an OSCAR - because awards mean nothing to him.

And the 53-year-old GHOSTBUSTER - who is favourite to win the BEST ACTOR prize next year (04) for his role in LOST IN TRANSLATION - despises thespians who campaign for award recognition.

Bill says, "It's a really unattractive sight to see an actor or actress who really wants an Oscar. And you often see it on the show, you see their faces and the desperation is so ugly.

"Desperation is not a quality I long for. I'm over the Oscar.

"Sometimes people win it and you think, 'This can't be true.' It's a little bit of a popularity contest, too. Sometimes it's right, but it's wrong just as often, so I don't care.

"I'd rather make movies that lots of people saw and liked. I'm happy with the results."
