"Fargo" star Billy Bob Thornton took home the Golden Globe on Sunday night for Best Performance by an Actor in a Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television, and although he's worn the director’s hat for a multitude of films, it seems his days behind the lens have come to an end.
Why? Hollywood just doesn't dig his Southern, Americana passion, he said.
"I am probably obsolete as a movie director in the current state of affairs," Thornton told reporters backstage after his win. "I was under the influence of Southern novelists and that kind of thing. I am not sure there’s much of a market for it."
Thornton has written and directed a number of movies with the Southern backdrop like "Slingblade" and "All the Pretty Horses," the most recent being 2012's "Jayne Mansfield's Car," set in 1969 Alabama and starring three World War II veterans involved in a cultural clash.
However, the former Mr. Angelina Jolie did divulge his Golden Globes celebratory plans: bacon instead of booze.
"I am not much of a drinker so I am going to eat seven pounds of pork," Thornton added with a laugh. "I am going to hang out and see old friends. That’s the great thing about award season is you run into a lot of people you don’t see all the time. It is nice to say hi to everybody. I will do a little bit of that."
