(AP) Oscar-winning actor Denzel Washington isn't taking his sixth nomination for granted, saying he's just happy that people still value his work.


Washington, who is in London for the U.K. premiere of Flight on Thursday night, is a best actor contender at the Academy Awards for playing alcoholic pilot Whip Whitaker in the film.


The 58-year-old American already has two Oscars to his name for Glory (1989) and Training Day (2001). His other nominations came for City Freedom, ''Malcolm X and The Hurricane.


Washington says it still feels good to know that people appreciate what you're doing.


After adding pilot to his long list of on-screen professions, where can Washington go next?


I don't know. What's left? Milkman? he joked.


Flight is released in the U.K. and Ireland on Feb. 1.
