"I vote for myself every year," Jackson shamelessly told ET. "The first ballot you get is: 'Pick the five actors you think did a great job this year.' So if I did five movies, I put my name in best actor five times."

The Hateful Eight, starring Jackson, Channing Tatum, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Kurt Russell, Bruce Dern, Tim Roth and Michael Madsen, has already been nominated for three Golden Globe Awards. Leigh, Quentin Tarantino and Ennio Morricone were recognized for Best Performance by and Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture, Best Screenplay and Best Original Score, respectively.

"It's like a weird, Western acid trip of the game Clue," Tatum told ET, describing the film. "Everyone's bad. Even the good guy is bad."
