Oscar Nominees apparently divide along sexual lines in their regard for Hollywood‘s highest honor. Male nominees put down the Oscars, while female nominees are aglow, according to Us magazine. Dustin Hoffman calls the Oscars “silly.” Al Pacino, on the possibility of his winning, says, “Please, don’t let it be me.” And Roy Scheider‘s quote: “You can’t rank performances. It’s like a playoff between Picasso and Cezanne.”

But actresses accept the nomination with more elan. Said Sally Field, “Any actor who tells you that winning an Oscar isn’t a deep-seated fantasy is lying.” Bette Midler chimed in with, “Win or lose, I’m thrilled.” And Jill Clayburgh‘s commented: “I worked for it, and I want it.”
