He won the Best Actor Oscar® for his performance as Maximus, the Roman general-turned-gladiator, in Ridley Scott's blockbuster Gladiator. This role also earned him Best Actor honors from several critics' organizations, including the Broadcast Film Critics. In addition, he received nominations from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the Screen Actors Guild and BAFTA.

In Ron Howard's A Beautiful Mind, Crowe's masterful portrayal of Nobel Prizewinning John Forbes Nash, Jr. earned him his third Academy Award® nomination and garnered him Best Actor awards from the Golden Globes, Broadcast Film Critics Association, Screen Actors Guild and BAFTA, among other critics groups.

Crowe received his first Academy Award® nomination for his work in Michael Mann's non-fiction drama The Insider, as tobacco company whistleblower, Dr. Jeffrey Wigand. He also earned Best Actor Awards from the Los Angeles Film Critics, Broadcast Film Critics, National Society of Film Critics and the National Board of Review and nominations for a Golden Globe Award, a BAFTA Award and a Screen Actors Guild Award.

Before his award-winning acclaim, Crowe made his mark in Curtis Hanson's crime drama, L.A. Confidential, as vice cop Bud White. He later starred in Jay Roach's Mystery, Alaska, and in Taylor Hackford's Proof of Life, opposite Meg Ryan. In 1995 he made his American film debut in the Western The Quick and the Dead, with Gene Hackman and Sharon Stone, and then starred as the cyber-villain Sid 6.7 in Virtuosity, opposite Denzel Washington. Additional film credits include Heaven's Burning, Breaking Up, Rough Magic, The Sum of Us, For the Moment, Love in Limbo, The Silver Brumby (based on the classic Australian children's novel), The Efficiency Expert and Prisoners of the Sun.

Born in New Zealand, Crowe was raised in Australia where he has also been honored for his work on the screen. He was recognized for three consecutive years by the Australian Film Institute (AFI), beginning in 1991, when he was nominated for Best Actor for The Crossing. The following year, he won the Best Supporting Actor Award for Proof and, in 1992, he received Best Actor Awards from the AFI and the Australian Film Critics for his performance in the controversial Romper Stomper. In 1993, the Seattle Film Festival named Crowe Best Actor for his work in both Romper Stomper and Hammers Over the Anvil.
