A lot of people have argued that Denzel should not have won his Oscar for his role in "Training Day" but for previous roles. Maybe that is true, but after being so used to Denzel playing the good guy, it was pretty sweet to see him act like a complete fucking asshole cop. Alonzo did not show an ounce of remorse or integrity throughout the entire film, and is one of the most hateable characters I have ever seen in a movie. He did drugs, extorted money for arrest warrants, and screamed out great lines including the famous "King Kong aint got shit on me!" Also factor in Denzel was born and raised in my home town Mt. Vernon, NY and Alonzo was an easy pick for my top 10.
