Joaquin Wins and Loses at the Globes

Joaquin may have won the globe, but he owed Ryan Phillippe $220 for losing a bet against himself. Let's be real - it's not like Joaquin is going to take a bet saying he was absolutely going to win. That just seems wrong. Anyway, he has admitted to be scared off by an Oscar. He said:

"For most actors, it's the highest recognition of one's work, but to me it's a danger. I don't want it to matter that much. I don't want it to start dictating my actions.

"After my nomination for GLADIATOR, I was offered several roles that were sold as 'guaranteed Oscar parts'. I turned them down. All of them But you know what? With each one the guy got nominated. Every single time! But I won't take them, that's not what it's about for me."

We're just happy he keeps working and one this whole Oscar thing is over maybe he can get out of the Johnny Cash character he seems to be stuck in these days. We are also looking forward to his new directing projects like the one he just shot for the British groupPeople In Planes.

Lots more cool pics of Joaquin so
