“Greed, that’s all part of the human condition. And I think that’s what affected Hollywood with Hitchcock, because he made money so he couldn’t be that “serious” of a director. They wanted to give it to important, serious directors who had important, serious actors like Marlon Brando or whoever. Those are the showy things — you got to be intense and cry and gnash your teeth together to win an Oscar.” — Sir Anthony Hopkins, on why Alfred Hitchcok, who the actor portrays in the currently playing “Hitchcock,” never won an Academy Award for his legendary body of work.
