Denzel Washington is known as an actor to be reckoned with. He’s a three-time Oscar nominee (three! Does that mean no Oscar has gone to a three-time nominee or a four-time nominee before?) and a silver fox-in-training. Or he was, at least. The Academy has announced this year’s Oscar nominees in the major categories, but they haven’t revealed any winners yet. And Washington is not even on the ballot. In fact, only three of the nine acting nominees are men: Viola Davis, Willem Dafoe and Bradley Cooper. Which means that man on fire is totally a woman, correct? People are screaming it out from the rooftops. And the only way we could find out it was from Anderson Cooper. But, hey, the Oscars are in a very accepting time, amirite?
