Seth Rogen, one of the most successful comedy actors in Hollywood, says he feels left out when awards season comes around because comedies rarely receive nominations.
Rogen, 34, has also written movies including Superbad, Pineapple Express and The Interview, reported Femalefirst.
“Whenever awards season happens I sure feel like an outsider because no comedy ever gets nominated for any awards in any way, shape of form. There’s a hierarchy in Hollywood and comedy’s at the bottom of it,”
he said. However, Rogen was delighted this year when his good friend, Anchorman director Adam McKay won a Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar for The Big Short. It is an American black comedy film based on the 2010 book of the same name by Michael Lewis, about the financial crisis of 2007–2008, which was triggered by the US housing bubble.
“It’s nice that Adam McKay won an Academy Award. That was like a huge step in the right direction, I think, and that movie is actually really funny, but I for sure feel like an outsider in a lot of ways because yeah I don’t get invited to those cool parties.”
