Quote of the Day (Alan Alda, on the Wild Kinds of ‘Oscar Swag’)

“You do the work and then they give you all these gifts for being nominated. I actually got a gift certificate for Botox. And an appointment with a plastic surgeon, a whole suitcase full of face cream, a trip to China. But Botox? It's saying, ‘You were very expressive in that movie, shoot this in your face. See if you can act with no expression whatsoever!’"—Alan Alda, on the “swag” that came his way for his Best Supporting Actor nomination for The Aviator, quoted in Tom Shone, “Alan Alda: 'Laugh? I Nearly Died,'” The Telegraph (U.K.), Jan. 28, 2016
