To watch Denzel Washington on screen is to love him. Even if you're not a woman (like myself) who finds him devastatingly handsome, you have to admit that he's got some SERIOUS acting chops and these 10 movies prove it!
Having been on Hollywood scene since the early since the late 70s, Washington, now 62, has amassed incredible fame. He's has 156 nominations and 80 awards under his belt for various titles, most notably having won 2 oscars—Denzel took home Best Actor in a Supporting Role for Glory in 1989 and Best Actor in a Leading Role for Training Day (featured on this list) in 2001.
Just this past year he was nominated again for 2 Oscars for the critically acclaimed film Fences to which he both starred in and directed. A basic synopsis of the film, as per IMDb—"A working-class African-American father tries to raise his family in the 1950s, while coming to terms with the events of his life."
Currently, there's no word of Washington working on anything in the near future, but we're holding out hope that we'll see more from this amazingly talented legend come 2018!
