Who will win the Oscar for Best Actor? Daniel Day-Lewis of course.
The intense speculation surrounding Daniel Day-Lewis' transcendent performance in Steven Spielberg’s "Lincoln" make him the frontrunner for Best Actor in a Leading Role. If he wins, he will not only take no one by surprise, but he will also make history as the first actor to ever win three Best Actor awards in the history of the Academy. Only eight other actors (besides Day-Lewis) have every won Best Actor award more than once: Spencer Tracy, Frederic March, Gary Cooper, Marlon Brando, Dustin Hoffman, Jack Nicholson, Tom Hanks, and Sean Penn. Day-Lewis' previous Oscar wins were in 1990 and 2007, for “My Left Foot” and “There Will Be Blood”.
