Denzel nominated for Oscar plus check out full list of nominees!

Swoooon! One of my favorite actors EVER is nominated! Woo- hoo! 58 year old Denzel Washinton received a well deserved best actor nod for his role in "Flight". He last received a best actor award in 2001 for "Training Day" and holds the record for most nominated African American actor. I'm really rooting for him!

Thoughts on the nominees?



  1. I think Denzel deserves the gong. He will finally overtake Sidney Poitier on the number of Oscars held by a black man if he wins.

    1. Wouldn't that be great?! He totally deserves it!!
