Bill Murray Is Fine with Sean Penn Taking His Oscar

"You could argue that Sean Penn didn't deserve the Oscar for that movie [Mystic River], but he probably did for a couple of others that he didn't get. [Laughs]. That’s the way it goes. He did some amazing jobs, like Dead Man Walking, and he didn't get the notice. So then he got it that time, and it’s like, I didn't get it, so what are you going to do? Someone said, 'What do you think about this,' and I said, 'Well, I think it's going to be a regular thing. I think I'm going to get nominated every 25 years so.' [Laughs]. I can yuk about it a little bit."

- Bill Murray to Deadline about his 2003 Oscar snub for Lost in Translation. He also mentions that he's seen Bridesmaids and, like everybody else, thought it was "a really funny movie."
