J is for..........Jack.
When you're the best at what you do, one name is enough my friends.
Love him or hate him, Jack Nicholson is arguably the greatest actor of all time.
Check out the credentials:
The man has been nominated for acting awards in 5 decades. That's right, 5 decades, from the 60s to the 2000s. He hasn't been nominated yet this decade, but I'm not betting against the guy.
His 12 Oscar nominations make him the most nominated actor of all time.
His 3 wins are tied for the most all time.
So yeah, maybe ol' Jack spends more time at Lakers' games than he does on movie sets these days, but I have a feeling he's got some great work left in him. Looking back on an amazing career, these are my favorite Nicholson performances:
5) The Shining
4) Prizzi's Honor
3) A Few Good Men
2) One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
1) About Schmidt
Love him? Hate him?
What's your favorite Nicholson performance?
