(2002) among others.

Continued to deliver more than decent performances in “Twisted” (2004) and “Heavens Fall” (2005), David eventually came to the highlight of his career when he wonderfully earned an Academy Award nomination in the category of Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in year 2006 for his brilliant turn in George Clooney's highly acclaimed picture of “Good Night And Good Luck” (2005). Also received nods at 3 other prestigious award events of Golden Globe Awards, Screen Actors Guild Awards, and BAFTA Awards, the attainment certainly has shown that the star still firmly maintained his superb knack in acting. Kept moving on smoothly, 2006 is likely to be another prolific year for the actor as there was a handful of films of him slated to be released which included “Matters of Life and Death”, “Fracture”, and “The Sensation of Sight” to be named few.
