(1996); the comedy ''Anger Management'' (2003); the romantic comedy ''Something's Gotta Give'' (2003); and the crime drama ''The Departed'' (2006). He has also directed three films, including ''The Two Jakes'' (1990).

His twelve Academy Award nominations make him the most nominated male actor in the Academy's history. He has won the Academy Award for Best Actor twice, once for ''One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest'' (1975) and once for ''As Good as It Gets'' (1997). He also won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for ''Terms of Endearment'' (1983). He is one of only three male actors to win three Academy Awards, and one of only two actors to be nominated for an Academy Award for acting in every decade from the 1960s to the 2000s. He has won six Golden Globe Awards and received the Kennedy Center Honor in 2001. In 1994, he became one of the youngest actors to be awarded the American Film Institute's Life Achievement Award.
