Denzel Washington is forever making history.
The 67-year-old scored his 10th Oscar nomination Tuesday, extending his reign as the most-nominated Black actor in Academy Awards history.Even before nominations were announced, Washington was the most nominated Black actor in history, receiving his ninth nod in 2018 for his work in “Roman J. Israel, Esq.”
With this year’s nomination, Washington has now been nominated for the Academy Awards in every decade since the 1980s. His first was a supporting actor nod in 1988 for “Cry Freedom.”
Despite being nominated 10 times, he only has two Oscar statues to show for his work. The first for “Glory,” at the 1990 awards, and the second for “Training Day,” in 2002.
