Training Day (2001)

This gritty cop drama marks the first collaboration between Fuqua and Denzel Washington, and earned the veteran actor an Oscar for his portrayal of a Los Angeles narcotics detective who frequently crosses the line to the wrong side of the law. The film was both critically acclaimed and a box office hit, making Washington the first Black actor since Sidney Poitier to win the Best Actor prize at the Academy Awards.
