is hoping to hear his name when the Oscar nominations are announced later this month - because he is desperate for another Academy Award.
The 51-year-old - who won two Best Actor in a Leading Role gongs for 1993 movie Philadelphia
and Forrest Gump
in 1994 - is keeping his fingers crossed for a nomination for his role in Charlie Wilson's War
when the shortlist is revealed on January 22.
He says, "If I'm 90 and haven't scored another one, I will truly view the latter part of my career as some kind of failure."
Hanks has also been nominated for Best Actor in a Leading Role for Cast Away
