Happy Birthday Jamie Foxx!
Actor, comedian, and singer, Foxx leapt on the scene when he joined the cast of the sketch comedy show In Living Color. Following this success, Foxx was given his own sitcom The Jamie Foxx Show, which he co-created and produced, for five seasons from 1996 to 2001. He became a true Hollywood heavyweight, after his portrayal of Ray Charles in the 2004 biographical film Ray, for which he won the Academy Award, BAFTA, Screen Actors Guild Award, Critics' Choice Movie Award and Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role, becoming the second actor to win all five major lead actor awards for the same performance.
Foxx was then nominated for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role in the crime film Collateral, and served as the host and executive producer of the Fox game show Beat Shazam.
Foxx is also a Grammy Award-winning singer, producing four albums, which have charted in the top ten of the U.S. Billboard 200: Unpredictable in 2005, which topped the chart, Intuition in 2008, Best Night of My Life in 2010, and Hollywood: A Story of a Dozen Roses in 2015.
