Timberlake plays down Oscar buzz

Justin Timberlake has played down rumours he could get an Oscar nomination for The Social Network.

"You never know what's going to happen with any of that stuff," the actor said, laughing and looking embarrassed at the LA premiere of his new kids' film Yogi Bear.

"I'm excited every time I do anything that anyone's like 'that was really good', you know," was all the 29-year-old would say.

The singer voices Boo Boo to Dan Aykroyd's Yogi in the modern-day take on the classic kids cartoon.

"This was a weird experience actually, you know they shot a whole movie before they got to us," he explained.

He went on: "We were required to fit the voices around the scenes in a certain amount of time because they had already shot a movie and then they went in afterwards and made the characters. It's kind of like a Who Framed Roger Rabbit? for this generation."

Teasing, he added: "I'd say it's every bit as technologically advanced as Avatar and you won't have to go to the bathroom in the middle of the movie!"
