You know you are amazing at your craft when you can go by one name. If someone said Janet, Madonna, Brando, you most likely would know who they were referring to. In the world of acting, one name is synonymous with brilliance and that name is Denzel. Last night at the Golden Globe Awards, Tom Hanks presented Denzel Washington the Cecil B. DeMille Award. From Glory, Malcolm X, to Training Day, Denzel has always been believable in his roles and he continues to set the standard by which all actors should be measured.
Always humble in his approach, Denzel showed a very down-to-earth and human quality as he did his acceptance speech. He forgot his glasses, he lost the speech, and he needed his help from his wife. He brought his entire family on stage to accept the honor. Check out the clip of his speech below.
