Sully star Tom Hanks plays down talk over Oscars nod

By David Mercer

Tom Hanks has insisted it is too early to talk about the Oscar buzz surrounding his performance as heroic pilot Chesley Sullenberger in Sully.

The two-time Academy Award-winner has earned positive reviews for his portrayal of the US Airways pilot who landed a passenger plane on New York's Hudson River in 2009.

Despite a number of critics tipping Hanks for another best actor Oscar nomination, the Forrest Gump star said he avoided talk of awards ahead of Oscars night in February.

He added: "That's somebody else's responsibility. I don't have to do anything like that.

"But oh man, it's September. Cut us some slack will you?"
