Sidney Poitier
Poitier won for Lilies of the Field (1963), his second nomination and only Oscar win during his career. In 2002, the same year Poitier won an Honorary Oscar award, Denzel Washington was named Best Actor for his role in Training Day (2001) -- making him the first African-American male winner in the category since Poitier.
