    Have not seen Ed Wood but I doubt Martin Landau was half as good as Sameul Jackson.

    “Marking his only Oscar nomination to date, Jackson lost the golden statuette in 1995 to Martin Landau who won Best Actor in a Supporting Role for playing Bela Lugosi in “Ed Wood.” But Jackson’s disappointment over the loss isn’t necessarily news: If you were watching his reaction closely as the award was announced — by a young Anna Paquin, mind you — you saw his mouth form what appeared to be the word “sh–”

    “I really don’t know many people who can not only remember ‘Ed Wood’ but remember what Martin Landau did in it,” Jackson told Deadline about his disappointment over losing his only shot thus far at the prestigious acting award.

    And to state the obvious, that was the year he was nominated for arguably his most famous role — the oddly philosophical, tough-as-nails hit man Jules Winnfield in Quentin Tarantino’s “Pulp Fiction.” “You know they were saying ‘Martin’s been nominated a few times and you’re going to be around for a while. Don’t worry.’ I was thinking I didn’t know it was a thing where if you get nominated for a few times you automatically get one. I thought it was supposed to be about impact.”

    For me Ed Wood was the most boring and the most senseless movie of all time. I felt like breaking my laptop after watching that movie. I had a headache for almost an hour after watching Ed Wood.

      hmm. As Samuel Jackson said he may have won just because he was old and may be because he played a transvestite.

      Sometimes a performance is so brilliant that you don’t even need to watch the other performances nominated that year and Samuel Jackson’s performance was that.

    You’ll never look at a Tarantino film the same way
    Huffpost Live’s dive into Quentin Tarantino’s expansive movie universe, including the films ‘Pulp Fiction,’ ‘Reservoir Dogs,’ and ‘Kill Bill,’ which is more complex and connected than you might assume at first glance. (Photo Credit: Getty)
