He was nominated four times in his career. Twice, he rejected the nominations without being successful. The one time he won the Award for , he famously refused to attend the ceremony.
In the first few minutes of our interview backstage George Campbell Scott is a different man from the one I remember several years ago. The thret of the roar is gone. Instead, here is this quiet, almost different guy, his hair much longer and iron gray, a grizzled beard framing the famous face, which seems to have been quarried in rough weather. It is a face so strong that it defies handsomeness, with a powerful ax handle of a nose that's been broken five times, a jaw that could crush walnuts, a mouth that's thin and long and down- turned like a Greek tragic mask. The eyes, with very wide irises fo Wedgwood blue, are screened through most of the interview behind steel-rimmed glasses.

While we are destroying the internet since Leonardo Dicaprio, Christopher Nolan, Quentin Tarantino, etc. didn’t get an Oscar award for their performances, there are some people who have turned down Oscars (Academy Awards) for various interesting reasons. They never thought an award will make their status higher. If you see the reason (mentioned below) why George Campbell Scott rejected his Oscar award, you’ll be surprised and in my opinion, that is a great one.
