He’s got the movie star looks, but more importantly, Denzel Washington has the movie star talent. His acting career has spanned over 40 years, and he’s earned plenty of accolades along the way.
Most recently, he was nominated for an Oscar for his role as Troy Maxson in Fences. However, what’s more impressive is that this is his seventh Oscar nomination so far. Two of those nominations he also managed to win. He was already the most nominated black actor in history, but his latest nod cements that record. (Sorry, Morgan Freeman. You’ve only got five nominations).
