Julie Christie dreads being nominated for the Oscars again. While most actresses pine for such an honor, Christie would rather be overlooked, she's been telling British newspapers, and not have to leave her native Wales for Los Angeles.

"I get deep anxiety about it," she told the Daily Express. "It's like you have to go to Mars and pretend to be a Martian."

Christie, 66, is expected to get an Oscar nod for her portrayal of an Alzheimer's victim in "Away From Her." She won best actress for "Darling" in 1965.
