Matthew McConaughey insisted he is not motivated by winning an Oscar when choosing films.

Amid the Oscar talk for his performance in Dallas Buyers Club, the actor told USA Today, "There's nothing out there that I am chasing, I want my work to translate. Last year was an incredibly creative year of work for me."

It has been a big couple of years for McConaughey with critically acclaimed work in Mud, Dallas Buyers Club and The Wolf of Wall Street, which is out this year. He's also currently shooting the Christopher Nolan film Interstellar.
