Swinton not upset about Oscar snub

Tilda Swinton says she wasn't disappointed about not getting nominated for an Oscar

The star had been widely tipped to get a nod for best actress for her role as the mother of a murderer in We Need To Talk About Kevin.

"I wasn't disappointed. I didn't know for hours, but someone was telling me apparently everyone else was disappointed", she said.

"I had very low expectations, so perhaps my expectations were a bit lower than everybody else," the 51-year-old added.

The actress was speaking at an event celebrating Here, a short film starring supermodel Agyness Deyn that Tilda conceived for Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc's Luxury Collection brand.

Tilda took home an Oscar in 2008 for best supporting actress for Michael Clayton.
