    You know what, I'm not surprised that Daniel Day Lewis won Best Actor, even though he's done it before. I was watching a very old film of his last night (filmed circa 1997 -was a baby then 🙂 where he played an ex IRA -classic- and I was thinking what a versatile actor he is. Haven't watched Lincoln yet but I sure will. Oh, and that Jessica Chastain, she really does bring life into a role. Philip Seymour Hoffman brings the beast into ever role he gets, so I am looking forward to watching the Master...
