The guy gets one great (usually the rough, negative types) role in the year, and someone else steals the thunder from him at the Oscars. This year he has two great movies — The Departed and Blood Diamond. Both must watches.
But it looks like he will be unfortunate again this year. I still havent got my hands on “The Last King of Scotland”, but apparently Whitaker’s acting is mind blowing and a sure shot Oscar winning performance.
