LOS ANGELES (AP) — John David Washington comes from a strong acting lineage, but he has carved out his own identity as a powerful actor, earning a Golden Globe nomination and generating Oscar buzz for his standout role in Spike Lee's "BlacKkKlansman."
LOS ANGELES (AP) — How some of the nominees reacted Thursday when they heard they were up for Golden Globe Awards, which will be handed out on Jan. 6 in Beverly Hills, California:
MIAMI (AP) — In her portrayal by federal agents, Miami Police Officer Schonton Harris sounds like a character right out of the Denzel Washington cop thriller "Training Day" — a foul-mouthed badass who would do anything, even kill, to keep the drug dealers she protected happy.
BROOKHAVEN, Miss. (AP) — A high school band's halftime performance depicting police being held at gunpoint is fueling anger in a Mississippi city where two police officers were recently slain.

NEW YORK (AP) — Denzel Washington joined the Boys & Girls Club of America when he was 5. He's never really left.
The 63-year old Oscar-winning actor says the lessons he learned from the youth organization became the foundation of his success. One valuable lesson came after a track and field event where Washington found he wasn't as fast as one other child.

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Police say two Minnesota beer deliverymen prevented a suicidal man from jumping off an interstate bridge in St. Paul by offering the man a Coors Light.
Authorities say Jason Gable and Kwame Anderson were driving their truck Wednesday morning when they spotted the man clinging to the outer fence of the bridge and asked him if he was OK.
‘The Equalizer 2’ cast discuss ridesharing experiences... except Denzel Washington, who’s never tried it
LOS ANGELES (AP) — "The Equalizer 2" faced off against another sequel, the musical "Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again" and came out slightly ahead. The Denzel Washington film earned $36 million in its first weekend in theaters to take the top spot. "Mamma Mia 2" was close behind with $35 million.
Pedro Pascal is still giddy about working with Denzel Washington on ‘The Equalizer 2’
In the battle of two very different sequels at the box office this weekend, Denzel Washington's action pic "The Equalizer 2" has narrowly won out over the ABBA jukebox musical "Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again."
You won't usually find Denzel Washington in a movie sequel. He just doesn't do them. Something about not wanting to repeat himself. So there must be something special indeed for him to break his own rule for "The Equalizer 2."
Fans of the first film will instantly know why Washington is drawn to the character of Robert McCall, a quiet middle-aged retired special-ops agent who fiercely believes in justice, likes to help others and dispenses the occasional lethal judgement for those deserving.

This may be Rhys' first movie, but she has already built an impressive resume.

Tony nominees react to being honored
NEW YORK (AP) — The Latest on nominations for the Tony Awards (all times local):
Tony-winner George C. Wolfe is happy with the vast diversity of shows on Broadway, many of which have earned Tony Award nominations.
The director earned another nomination for his work on "The Iceman Cometh," which captured eight nods, including for lead actor Denzel Washington.
NEW YORK (AP) — There are plenty of cocktail and wine options available at Broadway theaters during intermission. But these days, it might be wiser to order a strong cup of coffee instead.
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Denzel Washington's son John David Washington has technically worked with Spike Lee before. When he was 7-years-old he had a bit part in "Malcolm X," which his dad starred in.
The younger Washington is now getting his own chance to star in a Spike Lee joint in "BlacKkKlansman," which CinemaCon attendees got a sneak peek of Wednesday afternoon at the Focus Features luncheon.

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Despite cameras everywhere, not every superstar moment makes the broadcast of the Golden Globes.
Here's a look at the happenings inside the Beverly Hilton International Ballroom that you didn't see on TV.
COMMERCIAL SOCIALIZING: The ballroom isn't as big as it appears on TV, and most of the A-listers are crammed into a small space right in front of the stage. That makes it easy for stars to schmooze during commercial breaks.
