Washington’s Best Actor Nominee

Thursday morning was made extra special for a famous father and son.

Denzel Washington sat with his son John David Washington as the names of nominees for the 2019 Golden Globes were announced. Leslie Mann read the names for Best Actor and last on the list of 5 was John’s.

The “Blackkklansman” star told E! News that he hugged his dad for “what felt like for about 10 minutes. We just held each other.”

The 34-year-old’s nomination comes 30 years after his father’s first nomination—in the same category—for his role in the movie “Cry Freedom.”
