He didn't. It was a role in the film. He won an oscar because his performance was exceptional. It's nothing to do with that he had to play that role in order to win, it's simply that thats the role he played best. Stop looking into it so much.

Denzel Washington wins Oscar for Best Actor, Halle Berry gets Best Actress, and a random Oscar for Sidney Poitier... all in the same year. Come on people, you can't tell me you didn't think the Oscars are partly political?

Hell, there was a huge flap about Halle even winning her award...Angela Bassett bitched loudly and publicly about a black woman having to show her tits and do a graphic sex scene with a crusty old white man to win an Oscar.

Personally, I think Angela was just bitter for not winning one after she played Tina Turner.

As for Denzel, he just kicked ass in Training Day. His performance carried that movie, and he deserved an award. Not to say that Crowe (solid in every movie he's been in) or Smith (NOBODY could have played Ali better) didn't, but like Beatnik said, Denzel was due and had a performance that people could justify voting for.

Wasn't there a major incident involving Russell Crowe shortly before the ceremony? I remember one of those useless "Hollywood Insider" types on TV saying that whatever it was that happened with Crowe probably discounted him from winning the Oscar because the Academy didn't want to make it seem like they endorsed his behavior. I only remember because he was the frontrunner all year, and then Denzel came out of nowhere to win it.
