    Russell Crowe swept that year, but they still gave an Oscar to Denzel Washington. It’s still so offensive because his performance in “A Beautiful Mind” was amazing. I don’t understand why they didn’t give him a second Oscar as Tom Hanks. Who do you think deserved more Crowe or Washington that year?

    He deserved neither if you ask me. Tom Hanks kicked his ass with Cast Away and I rank him at #3 in 2001.

    He lost because of his behavior at the Bafta

    He physically assaulted a producer at BAFTA.

    Russell Crowe didn’t deserve it for Gladiator, Bardem or Hanks should have won.

    And Washington deserved it for Training Day over Crowe, the only time he deserved it was maybe for The Insider, and still he was outacted by Washington and Spacey that year.

    I remember by the time the Oscars came around that year that Crowe’s status as a frontrunner dramatically dimmed thanks to that BAFTA incident.

    Meanwhile, Washington had built up so much buzz due to his loss for MALCOLM X while just two years prior, he was considered neck and neck with Spacey for THE HURRICANE.

    Going into Oscar night, many did still predict Crowe but I did actually predict Washington (and Berry)…though I loathed Crowe so that also further drove my prediction and I was still somewhat naive at that time on the process.

    I also agree that Crowe in no way deserved it for GLADIATOR. That was an appalling win as he was my easy last place contender who didn’t even deserve to be nominated. I probably would’ve given it to Ed Harris honestly but Bardem and Hanks were also strong (Rush was a worthy nominee).

    To each their own. I love him in GLADIATOR and he deserved 1 Oscar. He probably deserves 2 Oscars but he killed his career with his bad temper. He is very limited too. He is the greatest playing alpha males and very manly men. But bad playing another type of Characters

    Russell totally deserved his Oscar for Gladiator, I remember he made me cry at the end of the movie, but it’s true the other nominees were wonderful, the only one I didn’t see was Ed Harris performance, but Bardem, Hanks, and Rush were wonderful.

    Denzel deserved his 2nd Oscar. His performance in Training Day was a career game changer and still remains iconic.

    His last great movie was AMERICAN GANGSTER. His career kind of died. He was way more loved when he was young. In those old days, I remember critics loving him and comparing him with Marlon Brando and Robert De Niro

    He was talking about Crowe, and i agree, he dipped after Master and Commander, he’s a great actor, but also a very limited one.
    He feels like a product of his time (late 90s-early 2000s), and in this industry to have longevity you need more versatility and you need to be a more interesting actor, that’s why actors of his generation like Washington and Hanks are still on the top.

    I agree. He is very limited. He is the greatest playing alpha males and very manly men but bad at playing other type of Characters. In other aspect, he is younger than DDL, Hanks and Denzel. He born in 1964. He is more in the class of Robert Downey Jr., Cruise, Depp and Keanu
