Delayed reaction doesn't bother Arkin

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

It's not like Alan Arkin has spent the past four decades worrying about it, but Lyndon Johnson was president the last time the winner of the supporting actor Oscar was nominated for an Academy Award. That was in 1968, for "The Heart is a Lonely Hunter."

Arkin finally took home the gold statue on Sunday for his tragi-comic role as a heroin-snorting grandfather in "Little Miss Sunshine."

"I don't spend a lot of time thinking about it," he said of winning awards. "I do my work. My main concern is being in projects where I can be excited about something."

He also has his thoughts on why, at age 72, he finally won.

"It's because of my age," Arkin said. "Everybody thinks I'm going to keel over in a year or two."
