Depp suggested to the BBC that he’s simply more concerned with his performances than any of the awards glitz that occasionally comes with it. “I just stick to my guns and do what I want to do,” Depp said. “Sometimes people don’t like it but that’s alright.”

As further proof that the Oscar nominee isn’t taking himself too seriously as awards season approaches, the actor will appear in a reality show(!) this fall. On the November 4 episode of the cable custom-car-design series Overhaulin’, the actor will appear alongside wife Amber Heard, whose ’68 Mustang will receive the titular overhaul.
