Is It Really Terrible to Lose at the Academy Awards? Jeff Bridges' Answer Might Surprise You

The seven-time nominee keeps it all in stride.

After Show: Jeff Bridges’ Bad Experience Trying Heroin

Jeff Bridges won a Best Actor Oscar in 2009 for Crazy Heart, and has been nominated six other times at the Academy Awards, including for last year's Hell and High Water. During a speed round of questions on the Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen aftershow, Andy Cohen asked if there was one nomination that he thought was in the bag but didn't win.

"It's always kind of a relief," he admitted, "like you don't have to get up and say anything. It's wonderful to be in the company of all those great actors, but I never felt that, actually."

Bridges is keeping busy on the silver screen, including starring in an upcoming firefighter flick called Only the Brave. He's also let it slip that there could be a third Tron movie one day.

“I hope that happens," he told Entertainment Weekly. "I think [director Joseph Kosinski's] got the script and everything, you know. Yeah, I don’t know that I’m supposed to talk about it or not. I don’t know. It should be the first virtual reality movie, you know? Wouldn’t that be cool… to see Tron in that world?”

Will Oscar come a-callin' again for Bridges' current film, The Only Living Boy in New York? He'd find it a pleasure just to be nominated.
