London - 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 UK premiere of Flight on Thursday night, has scooped a best actor nomination for the 85th Annual Academy Awards in his role as alcoholic pilot Whip Whitaker.

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 andThe 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?" Denzil joked.

Flight is set to open on 25 January in South African theatres.
