  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH!

If you want a candidate for the title of "best actor of all time", Jack Nicholson's the man. He's also in the running for most Magnificent Bastard.

Nicholson has been nominated for Academy Awards twelve times. He won the Academy Award for Best Actor twice, for One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and for As Good as It Gets. He won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for the 1983 film Terms of Endearment. He is tied with Walter Brennan for most acting wins by a male actor (three), and second to Katharine Hepburn for most acting wins overall (four). He is also one of only two actors nominated for an Academy Award for acting (either lead or supporting) in every decade since the 1960s (the other being Michael Caine). He has won seven Golden Globe Awards, and received a Kennedy Center Honor in 2001. In 2010 he was the very enthusiastic honorary starter for the Indianapolis 500. In 1994, he became one of the youngest actors to be awarded the American Film Institute's Life Achievement Award. He is internationally renowned for his often dark-themed portrayals of neurotic characters, such as The Joker in the Tim Burton Batman movie and Randle McMurphy in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. Also known for keeping up his career, as he has to approve of the script personally to make the movie and thus often avoiding only doing his roles for the money. Also, because Nicholson is a MASSIVE Lakers fan, attending every home game, his shooting schedule has to revolve around the Lakers schedule. However, he will still take a pretty big paycheck...

He was raised believing his mother was his sister and his grandmother was his mother because his real mother had sex with a man out of wedlock, and back then, being an unwed mom was considered taboo. Both were long dead when he found out.


Jack Nicholson appears in many films, including:
