    In terms of the performances they have won for, I actually would give it to the newbie of the group: Daniel Day-Lewis, at least for me, deserved it each time he has won (though I would rank Lincoln as his 3rd best)…..Second place would be Meryl.

    On top of that, I also think that he deserved it in 2002 for Gangs of New York, when he didn’t win.

    I think it’s a shame that even with 3 Oscars under his belt, Day-Lewis still doesn’t have the box office draw or name recognition that many many not-nearly-as-talented A-list celebrities have. I hope this third win will be the wake-up call the general public need to realize what a treasure Day-Lewis, and that he is arguably the finest working actor.  When looking at the list of two-time Lead Actor winners whose long-tied record Day-Lewis has now broken, there are many names that most people instantly recognize: Marlon Brando, Tom Hanks, Dustin Hoffman, Jack Nicholson, Sean Penn, to name a few. But it seems like most people who don’t follow awards or care much about reviews for films, probably will ask “who?” when you mention Day-Lewis. Please correct me if I’m wrong, because I hope I am.

    I’m choosing Day-Lewis because I respect him as an actor, and the dedication that he gives to his performances is staggering. Yes, Meryl gives dedication to her performances as well, knowing how to talk in many accents (I personally call her “The Queen of 1,000 Accents.) But, still, I’m choosing Day-Lewis because the performance he won his 3rd Oscar with was deserved, unlike Streep’s, which did not deserve the Oscar last year. I would have personally chosen Rooney Mara for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
