London: Actor Samuel L Jackson says he does not need to win an Oscar to feel he has enjoyed a good career.

The 'Django Unchained' star has only received one Academy Award nomination in his long career - for a supporting role in 1994 'Pulp Fiction' - but he does not feel he needs a gold statue to validate his work, reported Showbiz Spy.

"I've had a pretty good career. I don't think it will validate my stature in Hollywood one way or another. I've done some pretty interesting things, and it's been a long and rich career," he said.

The 64-year-old was crowned the highest grossing actor of all time in 2011 - based partly on the success of franchises in which he has appeared, such as 'Star Wars' and 'The Avengers'.

"Winning an Oscar is definitely not going to help my box-office record." he said.
