“None Of My Movies Are Going To The Awards” Declares Jason Momoa

After his roles in Aquaman and The Lost Kingdom, with the movie slightly exceeding expectations at the box office, Jason Momoa remains uncertain about the impact of his films in the industry. During his interview with Variety regarding his latest project ‘On The Roam,’ where he travels the country seeking art, adventure, and friendship, the actor talked about the many prospects he wishes to accomplish in his career.

According to Variety, while doing ‘On the Roam,’ Momoa noticed that he still feels he has so much to do in his career and thinks he hasn’t become an expert at anything.

“I don’t really think I’ve done anything so far,” he says, adding that “On the Roam” simply highlights “what I’d be doing on my off days.” Momoa continues, “I’m not going to be able to master all of these things. I’m a solid C+ to B- at everything. But I like doing a lot of different things, and I’m not an A at one thing. I really went after comedy. ‘SNL’ let me on twice. I tried ‘Slumberland,’ and it did OK,” Momoa says. “I have ‘Minecraft.’ I’m going to do another comedy-esque action thing with Dave Bautista after that. If people love this, I’d love to do a Season 2.”

After his breakout into the limelight more than 10 years ago playing Khal Drogo in the HBO blockbuster series ‘Game Of Thrones,’ the Dothraki king has played a part in franchises such as the Justice League and Fast and Furious. Despite his roles in these films, the actor, however, is not so sure if those projects are likely to receive any awards attention.

“There are some movies out there that I gotta go back to, and I’m sure if you did your homework, you’ll know which movies I’m referring to,” Momoa says. “I’ve just never been a part of movies that — none of my movies are going to the awards. I’m not really that guy. So maybe one day it’d be nice to do one of those kinds of movies, where it’s a really, really good movie.”
