Jack Nicholson is, by anyone’s standards, an icon of cinematic history…

Possessed with incredible versatility and a tonal uniqueness, he can drift between unnerving and maniacal in one scene, to wonderfully comical and charming the next. His captivating performances over the years have become seminal works; inspiring motion pictures for decades.

After appearing in low-budget horror films throughout the 1960s, Nicholson’s breakthrough role came in 1969’s road movie Easy Rider. It was a supporting performance which would cement him as a leading figure of New Hollywood: a cinematic movement of artistic, passionate, yet wholly unconventional filmmaking championed by young actors, directors, and artists of the time.

Over the next 40 years, Nicholson dominated the silver screen. From career defining roles in The Shining and One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, to the charging performances in As Good as it Gets and The Departed, he has a filmography unrivalled in quality and depth. We lucky fans have been treated to a lifetime of work by an actor who continues to surprise and excel to this day.

Most will know that Jack Nicholson is a three-time Oscar winner — a testament to his brilliance on the screen. What many might not know, however, is his staggering total of twelve Oscar nominations — making him the most nominated male actor in the awards’ history.
