Oops!!! I did it again. Nothing is there to be so apprehensive about, nothing indeed. It has become a habit with Daniel Day-Lewis to win prestigious awards on a regular basis. He has won two Oscars, besides 49 wins at other Film Festivals and has been a thirteen times nominee for the Academy Awards.
This time he repeated the same and became a proud recipient of his second best actor ???Academy Award??? on the last day of this weekend for ‘There Will Be Blood’. He definitely deserves kudos from his fans and critics equally for being so consistent, so best and so very elegant. In the movie ‘There will be blood’ he???s projected as a hot tempered, construing, and money minded petroleum pioneer having serious connections with California???s oil boom. He crafted his persona with his masterly strokes, his best expressions, and subtle precision.
In the female category ‘La Vie En Rose’ star Marion Cotillard was bestowed with the honor. Being considered an underdog, she received the coveted prize as a little surprise for she???d a close win over Julie Christie. Her gesture while receiving the prize was a blend of shock and astonishment. The Europeans ruled the roosts as far as the Academy Awards are concerned in notching all 4 acting prizes: besides Frenchwoman Cotillard, Spaniard Bardem as best supporting actor for ‘No Country for Old Men’, and Brits Day-Lewis along with Tilda Swinton, the supporting-actress winner for ‘Michael Clayton.’
It???s not yet over with Daniel Day-Lewis, hope Cotillard along catches the contagion. They should not forget the golden lines of Robert Frost ???Miles to go before I sleep, miles to go before I sleep??????
