Denzel Washington attended the Hamilton Behind the Camera Awards last night, where he promoted his new film “Fences,” which is already receiving Oscar buzz.
There was another buzz Denzel was chatting about backstage. He spoke with “Extra’s” Terri Seymour about the importance of voting tomorrow, November 8. “I hope people go and vote,” he said. “I hope they exercise their right. We all have, not just an obligation and a responsibility, an opportunity to exercise our right.”
With the election a day away, the Oscar winner discussed the country coming together. “That takes time to do, but it starts with each one us. It starts with you, it starts with me. So we all have that responsibility. We can’t complain about it — we’re all a part of it.”
During the ceremony, the actor presented an award to his “Fences” cinematographer, Charlotte Christensen. She told “Extra” she was happy to have him as her presenter, saying, “It means a lot because the work that I gave to this movie was very much a support to a vision to something that was already existing.”
