Along with Tom Hanks and Leonardo di Caprio (parts 1 and 2), Denzel Washington has long been one of my favourite actors. The two-time Oscar winner has been making quality films since the 1980s and at 62, is as prolific as ever. The New York star will probably lose out to Casey Affleck in the Best Actor nomination at the Academy Awards tonight, but he really was astonishing in Fences. As good a performance as you will see (and kudos to Viola Davis who is incredible too). How many of the films below can you work out?
There were some hugely powerful films about racial tensions in the 20th century as mentioned in Part 1, but this century has also provided plenty of memorable, provocative and reflective films on the same theme. How will you do? As always, please feel free to comment on how you’ve done, any thoughts on any of the films or any notable omissions.
With the release of the latest Kevin Costner film The Draft, it seemed the ideal time to do a themed quiz on Hollywood’s love for American Football. Even if you’re not a fan of the sport, you might still get a couple so definitely give it a go.
