Jackie Chan says Oscars are unfair

Jackie Chan said on his website Thursday that film awards like the Oscars can never be fair of the high volume of films and objectivity of judges.

"To be honest, I don't think anything is completely fair except for the Olympics. If you beat someone by one-thousandth of a second, then you won - with your result the only basis for a win - and of course this does not include cheating incidents," he said.

Chan wrote the comments in a message congratulating Ang Lee for his best director Oscar for Brokeback Mountain. The film lost to Crash for the best film award.

The martial arts film star also said that juror bias gives the awards an element of uncertainty. "Since everyone has different tastes or favorites, there will naturally be different results," he said.

His latest film Rob-B-Hood, where he plays a character who protects a baby from kidnappers, is expected to open in Hong Kong later this year.
