    Daniel Day Lewis is currently sitting on 144 acting wins throughout his illustrious career and also is only actor to win 3 leading Oscar in male category.Does it ensures that he is the greatest actor of all time considering,he won these many awards with the minimum amount of movies and has best per movie award average ever.Next to him in most awarded list is perhaps Leonardo DiCaprio with 98wins.Even if Leo reaches 145 wins that will be for a few more movies than Daniel Day Lewis acted in.
    PS:This is for most awarded male actor and best male actor

    He’s definitely one of the best of all time IMO. He’s astonishing in everything he does. Not to mention that his performance in There Will Be Blood is considered to be one of the best of all time and best male performance of the 21st century. He completely disappears into every character he portrays. His retirement is a huge lost to the great art of cinema.

    I find his acting to be rigidly technical and excessively hammy just like Cate Blanchett. He also seems to lack charisma.

    Not close to being best. Awards doesn’t make one best as we all know the kind of movies award bodies likes to reward.

     

    Jake Gyllenhaal is a much better actor than Day Lewis. I know you all will jump to disagree but it’s the truth

    I don't know who to STAN yet

    On one hand, it’s almost taken for granted that The Best Actors must be the ones who got a lot of serious movie awards.
    On the other hand, Laurence Olivier only got like one competitive acting Oscar, and I’ll put him above Day-Lewis in terms of acting and charisma.

    No, it does not make Daniel Day Lewis the best. Montgomery Clift never won an Oscar and I think that he is one of the best actors.

    Day Lewis only plays Oscar bait characters.

    Many other actors are way better than him and Gyllenhaal is one of those actors

    then he should do something that’s not destined for Oscar glory.

    Good to see you

    He retired 2yrs ago with 144 acting awards including 3 Leading Best Actor wins and respect of his peers as one of greatest screen actors of all time.

    He’s arguably the greatest, but not because of the number of awards he won considering quite a few awards are more political in nature than due to the actual performances.

    He’s up there with Brando, De Niro, Pacino etc as the greatest acting talents Hollywood has seen

    Good to see you too. But I don’t think Day-Lewis only did Oscar baity movies. He has tons of movies that got completely ignored by the award shows so I don’t think that’s really true. And even if he did that what’s the problem? Lots of actors do it. Gyllenhaal has done tons of Oscar baity movies in the past years. Brothers, Prisoners, Nightcrawler, Nocturnal Animals and Stronger are all Oscar baity movies. The problem is that he’s not recognized since Brokeback Mountain. I also would love to know why?!…

    Being good does not mean you will get awards, nor does getting awards mean you’re good.

    Daniel Day-Lewis is a phenomenal actor, and I think he’s worth consideration as the best actor of all time. His performance in There Will Be Blood will stay with me forever. However, in a world where Green Book just snatched Best Picture from excellent movies like RomaThe Favourite, and BlacKkKlansman, it’s pretty clear that the winner of an award is not always the best.

    Also, some years are more competitive than others. I’d have given the Oscar to Frances McDormand, Sally Hawkins, Saoirse Ronan, or Margot Robbie that year, but in the end only one of those actresses won. Because they didn’t get Oscars, does that mean that Hawkins, Ronan, and Robbie’s performances were weaker than, say, Gwyneth Paltrow’s for Shakespeare In Love? Nope.

    No.  Cold, self-indulgent performances.
