Judi Dench never expected an Oscar
IANS  [ Mon, Feb 3, 2014 ]
Los Angeles, Feb 4 (IANS) Veteran actress Judi Dench never thought that she will win an Oscar as she was told that she will never become a star and was advised to stick to theatres.

Dench is nominated in the best actress category at the 86th Academy Award for her role in "Philomena" after previously scooping a best supporting actress award in 1999 for her role as Queen Elizabeth I in "Shakespeare In Love".

The 79-year-old admits the possibility of landing an Oscar nomination, let alone winning, never crossed her mind, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"I was told very early on that I would never make films and I settled for that. I was a theatre actor and films didn't come into my thinking or anything. It has all changed very much since 'Mrs Brown' (for which she was nominated for an Oscar in 1998). So, now I do more films than I do work in the theatre. So, an Oscar is something I never considered," Dench told Britain's The Times.
