The Oscar Awards are a couple of weeks away and if movie goers could vote on who'd win the Oscar in the category for best actor, it would definitely go to...Denzel Washington.

Denzel Washington rose to the top of the list in a recent Harris Poll survey partly due to his role in Flight and his Oscar nomination this year. Other actors in the top 5 include Clint Eastwood, Tom Hanks and Johnny Depp and Brad Pitt tie for 4th place.

Denzel has some great competition in the Oscar category for best actor. He competes against Bradley Cooper for Silver Linings Playbook, Joaquin Phoenix for The Master, Daniel Day-Lewis for Lincoln and Hugh Jackman for Les Miserables. The Oscars will be handed out Sunday, Febrauary 24th at 6p on ABC.
