Daniel Day Lewis wins Best Actor Oscar

Feb 24 2013, 11:40pm CST | by

Daniel Day Lewis won Best Actor at the Academy Awards on Sunday (02.24.13).

The 55-year-old actor - who has been nominated five times - took home the third Oscar of his career for his performance as President Abraham Lincoln in the Steven Spielberg directed movie, 'Lincoln'.

The win makes Daniel the first person ever to win the Best Actor award three times in the history of the Academy, having previously triumphed for 1989's 'My Left Foot' and 2007's 'There Will Be Blood'.

His other nominations were for 'Gangs of New York' and 'In the Name of the Father.'

The actor - who was accompanied to the ceremony at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles by his wife Rebecca Miller - also picked up a Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild award for the role earlier this year.

He beat Bradley Cooper nominated for his role in 'Silver Linings Playbook', Hugh Jackman in 'Les Miserables', Joaquin Phoenix in 'The Master' and Denzil Washington in 'Flight' to take home the top prize.

While Daniel is known for his extreme mental and physical preparation for each film he stars in , the 'Lincoln' star previously insisted the reason he focuses so much on every role is because he finds embodying a new character a "huge pleasure of discovery".

He explained: "I didn't go looking for that [mystery tag], it was not my intention to create a specious air of mystery about what I do. But what's misrepresented is the fact I take a long time [preparing for each character] because I enjoy the work and it pleases me to take time over it.

"It's pure joy. It's a huge pleasure in discovery. It's a game, and I've never thought to obscure that fact. But that image persists of some sort of lonely, strange figure going about an unholy business."

James McAvoy covers Out Mag, is ambivalent about Scottish independence

Sep 16 2014 7:41am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

James McAvoy covers the new issue of Out Magazine to promote The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby. This is the first interview/media piece where someone actually describes what happens in the film, so SPOILERZ if you want to know a major plotpoint: she gets pregnant and they lose the baby and they’re both left reeling. As for the rest of the interview… it’s really good. McAvoy is usually a good interview (as in, he likes to talk), but he’s usually bad with soundbytes and providing cute little ...

John Travolta: Daniel Day-Lewis wanted to play Vincent Vega in ‘Pulp Fiction’

Sep 15 2014 6:45am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

John Travolta was in Toronto a few days ago to promote his newest film, The Forger. He got to work with Christopher Plummer, which is always nice. These are photos from the TIFF premiere – note the special Toronto Wiglet™. Travolta has changed up his facial hair too, although if you told me his goatee was a face merkin, I would totally believe you. The last time Travolta was out in public, he was “rocking” that compl ...

Did Justin Theroux freak out on some fans after they mentioned his thinning hair?

Aug 15 2014 10:20am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

If you ever want to see a man’s vanity, just say something about their hairline. Even the most IDGAF men worry about losing their hair. I think most women don’t really give a crap though. If a man loses his hair, most of us are like, “You should just shave it. Patrick Stewart is sexy. Bruce Willis is hot.” But men still worry. And when they really obsess about it, then we get stuff like Donald Trump ...

Eminem & Rihanna's Monster Tour Roars to Life at Rose Bowl: Concert Review

Aug 11 2014 7:27pm CDT | Source: Oh No They Didn't!

Eminem & Rihanna's long-awaited Monster tour, which kicked off Aug. 7 in Los Angeles at a sold-out Rose Bowl, is billed as a co-headlining tour between the two music superstars, and the pair treated the show as if they were equals, starting and ending together. However, sharing the stage with Eminem is like playing one-on-one with LeBron James or acting with Daniel Day-Lewis. Eminem is, as he reminded everyone last weekend at Lollapalooza, one of th ...

Freddie Prinze Jr Angry At Life

Jul 29 2014 8:37am CDT | Source: WWTDD.com

Freddie Prinze Jr talked a ton of shit about Kiefer Sutherland at Comic Con because the only other way to make headlines is vehicular homicide. Prinze apparently did not enjoy working with Kiefer on 24, and has since bombed every subsequent audition in a form of silent protest. “[Sutherland was the] Most unprofessional dude in the world… I did 24 and it was terrible. I hated every moment of it. I just wanted to quit the business after that. So, I just sort of stopped.” Dan ...

Pretty Little Liars Season 5 Episode 7 Recap: Lies and Whispers

Jul 23 2014 5:09am CDT | Source: The Hollywood Gossip

With just a few words, Spencer summed up Pretty Little Liars Season 5 Episode 7 pretty well last night: This is about lies and whispered conversations that stop when someone walks into a room. The installment largely centered on Aria volunteering at Radley, helping out during art class and slipping Bethany’s drawing into a pile of prints. It instantly grabbed the attention of a patient named Rhonda, who turned out to be Bethany’s roommate a ...
