Seth Rogen didn’t even know the announcements were being made the morning he was nominated for a Spirit Award for his new comedy “50/50”. 

“I feel like I’m trespassing in the indie world and they seem to have accepted it,” he said to the Hollywood Reporter. “I hope people don’t get mad at me for bringing my studio past into their world.”

Feeling like he has to apologize to those who share his nominations, Rogen hopes “people don’t get mad at me for bringing my studio past into their world.”

HR reported that when the actor was told to get in touch with his inner Harvey Weinstein to promote the film, Rogen said: “That’s the scariest thing anyone’s ever said to me. I’ve had enough experiences with the outer Harvey.”

Weinstein also received five Spirit Award nominations for “The Artist” despite prevailing views that it was ineligible because the director is French.
