Denzel Washington made his film debut in the movie, A Carbon Copy. But it wasn't until his role on television's St. Elsewhere that Washington began to become a major star in his own right. His first of five Academy Award nominations was for 1987's Cry Freedom. He took home Best Supporting Actor honors for Glory two years later. Washington gained attention for tackling juicy roles, including his Oscar nominated performance in Philadelphia, Crimson Tide, Courage Under Fire and The Hurricane. He has also directed several movies, including Antwone Fisher, which he also co-starred in.
