LOS ANGELES: Denzel Washington is excited. It's not so much because he is an Oscar front-runner for his role in "Fences". Pulitzer-Prize-winning "Fences," which opened in U.S. cinemas Dec. 25, is the first play by the late, influential black playwright August Wilson to be turned into a film.Washington is also involved in filming all 10 of Wilson's stage plays for TV channel HBO.With its strong reviews, "Fences" has put Washington and Davis front and center of a Hollywood awards season looking to redeem itself after the #OscarsSoWhite furor of the past two years.Washington, 61, is seen as a leading contender for his third Oscar, while Davis, 51, is regarded by awards pundits as a shoo-in in the supporting actress race.
