Michael Douglas

Wins Oscar

11 Apr, 1988

Douglas wins the Best Actor Academy Award for his portrayal of “Greed is good” corporate raider Gordon Gekko in Oliver Stone’s Wall Street (1987). Douglas:

A large part of this award belongs to Oliver Stone. And not only as the director, but having the courage to cast me in a part that not many people thought I could play. So I’ll always be eternally grateful to him for that. And as a writer, Oliver, with Stanley Weiser, wrote a part that was the best part that I’ve ever had in my career.
