London, Dec 14 (IANS) Actress Meryl Streep criticises the practise of campaigning for awards because she hates the idea of seeing the star with the best ad grabbing the top prize.According to, Streep who has won the Oscar award twice is a favourite to win another this year for her performance in “Doubt”. Streep, who just picked up a Golden Globe nomination, doesn’t want to buy any advertising space to promote herself.

She said: “I hate the campaigning thing. It’s unseemly. You should be honoured for something. It shouldn’t be for whose campaign was better.”
