Robert Redford - Robert Redford Blames Poor Distribution For All Is Lost Oscars Snub

Robert Redford launched the 30th annual Sundance Film Festival in Utah on Thursday (16Jan14) with a subtle jab at the movie bosses behind his new film All Is Lost, blaming them for his Oscars snub.

Many experts expected Redford to be nominated for a Best Actor trophy when the categories were announced early on Thursday morning, but his name was not read out and the film's lone mention was for Sound Editing.

Speaking at the Sundance press conference, the movie veteran said, "Hollywood is what it is, it's a business and so when these films go to be voted on, usually they're heavily dependent on campaigns. In our case I think we suffered from little to no distribution. And so, as a result, our distributors, I don't know why, they didn't want to spend the money, they were afraid, they were just incapable, I don't know."

He added, "I'm not disturbed by it, I'm not upset by it because, like I said, it's a business."
