Awards are meaningless to me, and I have nothing but disdain for anyone who actively campaigns to get one.
When the phone started ringing too many times, I had to take it back to what I can handle. I take my chances on a job or a person as opposed to a situation. I don't like to have a situation placed over my head.
I went to Second City, where you learned to make the other actor look good so you looked good and National Lampoon, where you had to create everything out of nothing, and SNL, where you couldn't make any mistakes, and you learned what collaboration was.
There are people who drove me crazy, but they got the job done. And when I see that person again, I nod my head. Respect.
