Stating that it means different things to him as an actor and an individual, Baaj said "As a person, to me, awards are like carrying first in class. Becuase you are the first in class doesn't necessarily mean you are the most intelligent, or doesn't mean you will be the most successful."

"All over the world, it has been known that you can manipulate things around that will help you get an award. All these factors really tie to the fact that awards are not the best way to tell when something is great, when something is the best, or when something is number one.

"As an actor and a filmmaker, getting an award is fantastic, it is a great feeling, but it doesn't really change things for me in terms of how I view things. But of course, in the grand scheme of things, when you want to get capital for your movie or if you want to get better roles, the fact that you have a bunch of awards backing you up, always helps. That's the world we live in, you can't change that."
