The actor, previously nominated for "Pirates Of The Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl," "Finding Neverland," and "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street," infamously told BBC Newsbeat that he "doesn't want to win one of those things ever."

Read More: Telluride Review: Johnny Depp is Trying Something Very Different in 'Black Mass' Johnny Depp has nabbed three Oscar noms, for "Finding Neverland," "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl" and "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street," but has never secured an Oscar win.

Nominated for Oscars three times in the last decade — for "Pirates Of The Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl," "Finding Neverland," and "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber Of Fleet Street" — you might think Johnny Depp would want some of that gold hardware to put on the mantle of his fireplace on his private island. But for the actor, just being nominated is enough, thanks. "I don't want to win one of those things ever, you know," the actor told BBC Newsbeat. "I don't want to have to talk. They gave me one of those things, like a nomination, two or three times. A nomination is plenty." Maybe it's some kind of reverse psychology Depp is using on Academy voters as the awards season heats up and he becomes a contender for his turn in the gangster tale "Black Mass." And while many have marked his performance in the movie as a return to form, »

Johnny Depp says he doesn't want to win an Oscar.
The actor has been widely praised for his performance as real-life mobster James 'Whitey' Bulger in Black Mass, but he told BBC Newsbeat that he's not thinking ahead to awards season.
"I don't want to win one of those things ever, you know," he said. "I don't want to have to talk.
"They gave me one of those things, like a nomination, two or three times. A nomination is plenty.
"The idea of winning means that you're in competition with someone, and I'm not in competition with anybody. I just stick to my guns and do what I want to do. Sometimes people don't like it, but that's alright."
Depp has been nominated for an Academy Award three times, for Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Finding Neverland and Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. »

"I don't want to win one of those things ever, you know," Depp explained of the Academy Awards, adding, "I don't want to have to talk" if he wins.
"They gave me one of those things, like a nomination, two or three times," the actor told Newsbeat. "A nomination is plenty."

Michelle Williams and her daughter, Matilda Ledger, had a Broadway night out together in NYC on Sunday. At the Finding Neverland musical, the pair posed for pictures backstage with star Matthew Morrison. Matilda will turn 10 years old later this month, and she wore a cowboy hat and a bandana while out with Michelle, who opened up about motherhood earlier this year. In the April issue of Elle UK, the actress said, "I feel like I'm so good at raising a kid when I'm not working. I don't forget anything. I've got everything covered. It's a real luxury to have a moment when I'm not scrambling." »

Update: This post originally included a photo of Matilda that was not approved by Michelle. It has since been removed at her request. Michelle Williams has kept her daughter with Heath Ledger away from the public eye, but this weekend, the two took in a Broadway show. The "Dawson's Creek" alum and the 9 year old had a meet and greet with Matthew Morrison after catching a performance of "Finding Neverland" on Broadway at the Lunt-Fontanne Theater in NYC on Sunday night. While the actress does a great job shielding her daughter from the media, Williams opened up about being a single mother in Elle UK earlier this year. "I feel like I’m so good at raising a kid when I’m not working. I don’t forget anything. I’ve got everything covered. It’s a real luxury to have a moment when I’m not scrambling," she told the mag at the time. »

The Walk, the true story adaption of high-wire artist Philippe Petit’s (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) 1974 walk across the World Trade Center from director Robert Zemeckis, premiered this Saturday at the 53rd New York Film Festival. The film has been receiving major Oscar buzz for Gordon-Levitt and Zemeckis, and hopes to garner a best picture nomination.
However, the film’s rating, PG, makes it a bit of a rarity in relation to recent Oscar success. Though it is not considered a children’s film by any means, with moments of extreme tension and drama, The Walk is nonetheless a family-friendly picture and its Npaa rating reflects that.
Since the turn of the new millennium, the majority of best pictures noms and winners have been rated PG-13 or R, a trend Zemeckis is hoping to buck this season.
Here’s a look back on recent films that were »
