JAMIE FOXX (Ronald Fleury) won the Academy Award® for best actor in 2004 for his portrayal of the legendary Ray Charles in the Taylor Hackford-directed biopic Ray. In addition to winning the Oscar®, Foxx swept the Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild, BAFTA and NAACP Image awards, as well as receiving numerous critics awards, for his performance in Hackford's Oscar®-nominated film. He also shared in a SAG Awards nomination received by the film's ensemble cast.

That same year, Foxx also garnered Oscar®, Golden Globe, SAG Awards, BAFTA and NAACP Image nominations in the category of best supporting actor for his work in Michael Mann's dramatic thriller Collateral, in which he starred with Tom Cruise. Also in 2004, Foxx earned Golden Globe and SAG Awards nominations and won an Image Award for best actor in a television movie for his portrayal of condemned gang member-turned-Nobel Peace Prize nominee Stan "Tookie” Williams in the F/X Network's telefilm Redemption: The Stan Tookie Williams Story.

Foxx's achievements marked the first time that a single actor has received three Golden Globe nominations and four SAG Awards nominations in the same year. He is also the first African-American actor to be nominated for two Oscars® in the same year and is only the second man in history to receive two acting Oscar® nominations in the same year for two different movies.

During Christmas 2006, Foxx was seen in the highly anticipated screen adaptation of the Broadway musical Dreamgirls from DreamWorks and Paramount Pictures. The film was written and directed by Bill Condon and co-starred Beyoncé Knowles and Eddie Murphy. The film won a Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture Musical Comedy, and received a SAG nomination for Best Ensemble Cast. Dreamgirls was nominated for an Image Award for Outstanding Motion Picture, and Foxx was nominated in the Best Actor Category for his performance as Curtis Taylor, Jr.

Foxx is also involved in producing projects with his entertainment company, Foxx King Entertainment. The first film from this company was Life Support, which Foxx also executive-produced. The film closed the 2007 Sundance Film Festival and starred Queen Latifah. It is an inspirational true-life story of a mother who overcame an addiction to crack and became a positive role model and an AIDS activist in the black community. The film debuted on HBO last March.

In addition to his outstanding work in front of the camera, Foxx has achieved a thriving career in music. The release of Foxx's long-awaited J Records debut, "Unpredictable,” was just one taste of his recent unprecedented accomplishments as an artist. "Unpredictable” topped the charts in late December 2005 and early 2006, as it held the No. 1 spot for five weeks, sold more than one million units in 20 days and was nominated for eight Billboard Music Awards, three Grammy Awards, one Soul Train Music Award and two American Music Awards (at which Foxx won Favorite Male Artist).

His NBC special Unpredictable was a creative live performance of his album, which included an all-star lineup of artists such as Mary J. Blige, Common, Snoop Dogg, The Game and Angie Stone. The album was nominated for three Grammy Awards in 2006—including Best R&B Album; the track "Love Changes,” featuring Mary J. Blige, for Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group; and the track "Unpredictable,” featuring Ludacris, for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration.

In January 2007, Foxx announced his partnership with SIRIUS Satellite Radio to start his own 24-hour radio station called The Foxxhole. The station is a combination of comedy and music and launched in May.
