The Academy Awards has always determined a high level of prestige among the filmmaking industry. Being awarded with an Oscar change completely your resume in the movie market. The movie with the most awards get immediately labeled as excellent, as well happen to the actors.
On Sunday, February 24th, Irish Actor Daniel Day Lewis became the actor with the most Oscars received in the category for Best Actor, for his work as 16th President of the United Stated, Abraham Lincoln in the biopic ‘Lincoln’.
Day Lewis has been nominated five times in the category of Best Actor in a Leading Role in which he has wan three. His first Oscar was in 1990 for the movie “My Left Foot: The Story of Christy Brown” and the second one, was five years ago in 2008 for his role as a California oilman in the movie “There will be blood”. For his third award he had to beat fellow nominees: Bradley Cooper, Joaquin Phoenix, Denzel Washington and Hugh Jackman.
Reading Daniel Day Lewis filmography, we can conclude due to the short list of movies (comparing with fellow actors) he has lead that an exhausting procedure of review is held when choosing a new project. On the list of movies, I couldn’t find anything related to commercial nor low scrip quality.Maybe the only movie that can be labeled as a failure even though watching the trailer looks promising, is ‘Nine‘ with actresses Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz, Marion Cotillard, Judi Dench, Sophia Loren, among others. Who could ever thought that a movie whose cast was contained by six Academy Award Winners produce a movie with such a lousy result.
