Rio's Attic: Celebrating the Life and Times of a Dearly Missed River Phoenix

"I'm praying that I don't win. I don't want to get up there and accept it. It's not my thing to get up there at the altar and give myself praise and look good. I don't think it's fair to these actors who have been around a lot longer than me. That's not corteous respect to them. My feeling is that if I win it'll be because of politics."

River Phoenix on his Academy Award Nomination.

"I think in a way I'm being challenged. I feel that there are great minds up there who would like to see what I can do with an Oscar nomination. I guess many people would change after a nomination in the way they see things. In my case it's really irrelevant in terms of what I do. Still, it was an incredible experience which I will put in my memories, like everything else."

River Phoenix on his Academy Award Nomination.

"Fame is what gets people to go watch your film. I'm glad to be in a film that I believe in and if it takes fame, then it's my job. But let's put it this way: I'd rather be a ghostwriter than have my name down. Credit doesn't matter to me. I hate being reminded of it. I want to be innocent of it. It don't want to be ruined by it."
