London: Former Bond girl Rosamund Pike says she wants Oscars bosses to overhaul the prize giving, branding award ceremonies the "low point" of the year.
The 32-year-old actress did a blunder while presenting a British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) award earlier this year when she almost read out the winner before the nominees were listed.
But she's adamant she wasn't embarrassed by the slip-up, insisting the formal format of movie award ceremonies needs to be shaken up.
"I find award ceremonies so often the low point. These are all the things I probably shouldn't say - but I find them the low point of the cinematic calendar, because you're celebrating all these fantastic performances and you have people delivering trite lines in a sort of terribly pretentious manner on stage and sometimes you think, there has got to be a new format for these things...”
"I can't watch the Oscars, everybody thanking their mother, their father, their grandparents, their nurse - it's crazy, horrible," she said.
