There Will Be Blood: Daniel Day-Lewis Wins Oscar

No denyin' he was going to win. Even after the nominees were announced for Best Actor, there was no moment of opening the envelope, no sound: it was announced he was the recipient of the Oscar. They forced him to make a short speech, which probably suited him in character (or not) well.

Congrats, Daniel Day-Lewis. Despite what critics say, I think the character loved his adopted son, but felt betrayed for some reason, maybe because Plainview began to hate himself more and thus, others. I appreciate that picture very much for its symbolism, and best character study, although nearly all of the nominated films had them.

DDL gives thanks here.
