Oscars flashback: Daniel Day-Lewis (‘Lincoln’) sets record with 3rd win as Best Actor [Watch]
After his sweeping victory with “There Will Be Blood” in 2007, many thought Daniel Day-Lewis had reached his zenith. What could top that performance?

In 2012 he was given the title role in Steven Spielberg’s epic “Lincoln.” Once again he immersed himself in the role, spending an entire year on research of Abraham Lincoln alone.
