Super Star & Award Winner

Denzel-Washington

A popular black actor, Denzel Washington somewhat filled the gap created when Sidney Poitier went into semi-retirement. His defining role was in GLORY.

Denzel Washington received a nomination for Best Supporting Actor for his role in CRY FREEDOM and the Oscar two years later for GLORY. His other notable films include MO' BETTER BLUES, THE PELICAN BRIEF, MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING, CRIMSON TIDE, REMEMBER THE TITANS, JOHN Q, ANTWONE FISHER, and OUT OF TIME.

In 2002 Denzel Washington won the Best Actor Oscar for TRAINING DAY. Denzel seems to pick his film projects better than many stars, frequently appearing in projects that are popular and critical successes.

Washington's newest films include: 2 GUNS and FLIGHT.
