He says he's on the wildest ride of his life! Jamie Foxx got not one, but two Oscar® nominations, snagging a Best Supporting Actor nod for his performance in Collateral and a nomination for Best Actor with his amazing performance as Ray Charles in Ray.
Oprah: So they announce [the picks] for Best Supporting Actor before Best Actor. When you got named for Best Supporting, what did you think?
Jamie: It just feels so good because it's like a dream. It's like when I looked at Denzel [Washington]; when I looked at Halle Berry as a younger kid and thinking, "What's with the black suits and the statues?" and being inspired by that…and to see things coming to me like the way it came to them is just a beautiful thing. So every little thing about this is just wonderful.
