Daniel Radcliffe says he doesn’t feel snubbed by Tony Awards: “The people that do this job for awards and recognition are kind of worshipping at the wrong altar”

Daniel Radcliffe seems almost puzzled by all of the stories swirling about regarding his apparent “snub” of a Tony Award nomination. Radcliffe insists he did not get into acting for the awards ceremonies.

“I think I speak for 99% of actors when I say that… while it’s lovely to get recognized by your peers, it’s not the reason why we do it.”

The actor, who was recently recognized as the highest-paid actor under the age of 30, is currently starring on Broadway in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, and he is pleased with the shows positive reviews, including those for his first lead role in a musical.

“The people that do this job for awards and recognition are kind of worshipping at the wrong altar, and I’m not really quite sure if I want to know those people.”

The actor offered up a bit of a tease regarding his “other” well recognized role: in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part Two, the final chapter in the wizard series, the pace moves at “200 miles an hour from the word go” Radcliffe promises.
