Academy Awards winner Jamie Foxx is nominated for 3 Grammy Awards including Best R&B Album for Unpredictable, Best Rap Duo/Group for Georgia with Ludacris and Best R&B Performance by a Duo/Group for “Love Changes” with Mary J. Blige from Unpredictable.

Jamie Foxx won an Academy Award for Best Actor in 2005 for his portrayal of the legendary Ray Charles in the Taylor Hackford-directed biopic "Ray." In addition to winning the Oscar, Foxx swept the Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild (SAG), BAFTA, and NAACP Image Awards, as well as numerous critics awards, for his performance in "Ray." Also in 2005, Foxx garnered Oscar, Golden Globe, SAG Award, BAFTA Award, and Image Award nominations in the category of Best Supporting Actor for his work in Michael Mann's dramatic thriller "Collateral," in which he starred with Tom Cruise.

This marked the first time that a single actor has received three Golden Globe nominations and four SAG Award nominations in the same year. Foxx is also the first African-American actor to be nominated for two Oscars in the same year, and is only the second man in history to receive two acting Oscar nominations in the same year for two different movies.

In addition to his work in front of the camera, Foxx is enjoying a thriving music career. His first full-length solo music album, Unpredictable (on J Records), topped the charts in late December 2005 and early 2006. It held the #1 spot for five weeks and sold more than one million units in 20 days. In 2005, Foxx earned two Grammy Award nominations, one for his single, "Creepin'," on the album So Amazing: An All-Star Tribute to Luther Vandross, and another for his work with Kanye West on the single "Gold Digger."

Foxx first came to fame as a comedian. After spending time on the comedy circuit, he joined Keenan Ivory Wayans, Jim Carrey, Damon Wayans and Tommy Davidson in the landmark Fox sketch comedy series "In Living Color." In 1996, he launched his own series, "The Jamie Foxx Show." Foxx not only starred on the series but was the co-creator and executive producer, and also directed several episodes.

Jamie Foxx is back. This past December, Foxx stared with Beyonce Knowles in the film "Dreamgirls," the movie version of the stage play that is loosely based upon the lives and careers of Motown act The Supremes. Foxx is been cast as Curtis Taylor Jr, the manager who leads the female singing group, The Dreamettes, to fame and fortune.

Upon the release of the film, Foxx will launch a 30-city national arena and theatre tour performing songs from his hit album Unpredictable. His performance will be a combination of songs and comedy with Foxx returning to his roots.
