Meat Loaf nods off while judging Oscars films

Friday February 24, 2012

Meat Loaf has confessed he fell asleep watching the movies nominated for the Best Film Oscar, and hasn't seen them all the way through.

The Bat Out Of Hell singer is a member of the Academy and votes for the award winners. But he admitted he didn't find hotly tipped Best Film contender The Artist easy to watch, so he didn't finish it.

Meat Loaf revealed: "I have a real hard time voting for Best Film, because they're so different.

"When I get a screener, I watch... we get 60 something screeners this year, I watch 50 of them.

"I didn't finish all 50 of them because there were other movies that particularly weren't my cup of tea and I was falling asleep. That's nothing against The Artist."

He continued: "To be perfectly honest, I don't vote in every category because I think some things just can't be judged.

"And this year I didn't vote in Supporting Actress because I thought that there was no way I could give one over the other one."
