50 Cent: 'Samuel L. Jackson Deserves an Oscar'

Rapper-turned-actor 50 Cent is calling on Academy Award officials to recognise Samuel L. Jackson's hard work by honouring him with an Oscar.

50 Cent was blown away by Samuel L. Jackson's performance in recent TV movie The Sunset Limited, and he can't understand why the Shaft icon has yet to claim gold at the annual prizegiving.

In an interview with Vibe magazine, 50 says, "Samuel L. Jackson is probably the most underrated actor. Like, he's trying to go for the world record of underrated.

"You have the strongest monologue and awesome performance in Pulp Fiction, and it's overlooked. Props don't count. He deserves an Academy look."

Jackson has been vocal about his disapproval of rappers embarking on careers in Hollywood in recent years and 50 Cent, who has undergone acting lessons to hone his onscreen skills, insists he understands the star's frustrations.

The rapper adds, "He said something about me earlier. I was a fan of him before and after he said it. You understand, if you are that passionate... That person has disciplined himself and trained himself... I'm with Sam: I don't want to be in no movie with no damn rapper."

Jackson has only been nominated for an Oscar once, for 1994's Pulp Fiction, in his near-40 year career.
