Daily SAll-Star: Daniel Day-Lewis
We're finally back in business after a hiatus of lazy.
And we're kicking it back off with a great one: Daily SAll-Star Daniel Day-Lewis.
Day-Lewis won the Oscar for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his work as Daniel Plainview in There Will Be Blood last night and it wasn't even close, despite some great performances from great actors such as George Clooney, Johnny Depp, Tommy Lee Jones, and Viggo Mortensen.
This marked the 4th nomination for DDL and second win in the category. Straight up: the guy can act. Known as an extremely selective actor, Day-Lewis puts an incredible amount of research and devotion into each role.
If you haven't seen There Will Be Blood, stop whatever you're doing and see it now. DDL's performance is truly amazing, perhaps only matched in the past year by Javier Bardem's incredible take as Anton Chigurh.
*MILD SPOILER ALERT* (although I maintain if a movie is really good, you'll enjoy it regardless of if you know the outcome or not)
