* DoingItForTheArt: He not only accepted a minor role in ''Film/BroadcastNews'' for no money, but ''specifically'' requested that he not appear in the trailer, the opening credits, or any advertisements or promotions for the film because he did not want to take attention away from lead actors Creator/WilliamHurt, Creator/AlbertBrooks and Holly Hunter.
* MagnumOpusDissonance: Considers his best performance and the favorite of all his films to be Creator/MichelangeloAntonioni's ''The Passenger'' which is far less famous than his more notable films.
* MeanCharacterNiceActor: The difference between his interviews and his characters is...striking.

* StarMakingRole: ''Film/EasyRider'' earned Jack his first Oscar nomination, and ''Film/FiveEasyPieces'' solidified him as a leading man, but his Oscar-winning role in ''Film/OneFlewOverTheCuckoosNest'' assured his place in movie history.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Shortly before his acting career took off, he tried to get hired at MGM's animation unit as a cleanup artist on ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry''. The unit closed less than a week after his job interview. MGM animators Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera then offered him an opportunity as an animator at their [[Creator/HannaBarbera upcoming studio]]. He declined the offer to pursue his acting dreams, but remained good friends with the animation duo.

Nicholson has been nominated for Academy Awards twelve times. He won the Academy Award for Best Actor twice, for ''Film/OneFlewOverTheCuckoosNest'' and for ''Film/AsGoodAsItGets''. He won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for ''Film/TermsOfEndearment''. He is tied with Walter Brennan and Creator/DanielDayLewis for most acting wins by a male actor (three), and second to Creator/KatharineHepburn for most acting wins overall (four). He is also one of only two actors nominated for an Academy Award for acting (either lead or supporting) in every decade since the 1960s (the other being Creator/MichaelCaine). He has won seven Golden Globe Awards, and received a Kennedy Center Honor in 2001. In 2010 he was the [[LargeHam very enthusiastic]] honorary starter for the Indianapolis 500. In 1994, he became one of the youngest actors to be awarded the American Film Institute's Life Achievement Award. He is internationally renowned for his often dark-themed portrayals of neurotic characters, such as SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker in the Creator/TimBurton ''Film/{{Batman}}'' movie and Randle [=McMurphy=] in ''One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest''. Also known for keeping up his career, as he has to approve of the script personally to make the movie and thus often avoiding [[MoneyDearBoy only doing his roles for the money.]] Also, because Nicholson is a MASSIVE [[UsefulNotes/NationalBasketballAssociation Los Angeles Lakers]] fan, attending every home game, his shooting schedule has to revolve around the Lakers' schedule. However, he will still take a pretty big paycheck...
