The Oscars are Sunday night and Denzel Washington is among those in the running for the Best Actor award for his role as an alcoholic pilot in Flight.
HipHollywood recently caught up with Washington who revealed some of the preparation that went into his Oscar-nominated performance. “I got into these flight simulators to try and learn how to fly the planes but I also spent a lot of time with pilots,” he explained.
The celebrated actor also revealed what he learned about pilots helping other pilots battling addictions, saying, “What I dug about talking to some of these guys is that they don’t shun [the other pilots], they put them in programs, they circle around them and they want to keep them.”
We’ll have to wait until Sunday to see if Denzel’s hard work paid off, but win or lose, Denzel is excited to be nominated. He shared with us his excitement about the possibility of being nominated during the film’s junket. Check it out!
