Scottish actor Alan Cumming hopes he's never nominated for an OSCAR because he couldn't bear to sit through the lengthy ceremony without a snack.

The JOSIE + THE PUSSYCATS star loves the post-Oscars party because he enjoys getting drunk with his starry pals but he'd hate to actually have to attend the awards.

He says, "You have to take snacks in your tuxedo and if you go out, some person comes and sits in your seat and you're not allowed back in."

Cumming's favourite Oscar memory is from the Vanity Fair party two years ago (03) when a black-out brought the event to an abrupt ends.

He recalls, "It was hilarious... I was standing next to Glenn Close and I was like, 'Get your hands off me. How dare you.'"
