As I'm sure you recall Denzel has already won an Oscar for his thug cop role in Training Day. And since the Golden Globe's sometimes sets a trend that the Oscars follow, we might see Denzel up for another Oscar for playing a thug. Note that Denzel was not nominated for his role in The Great Debaters.
I'm happy that the yet to be released The Great Debaters (Which opens on Christmas day) was nominated in the Best Motion Picture category. I hope the Oscars follows this lead.
Does Denzel's thug role nomination bother you?
