Will Daniel Day-Lewis make Oscars history?

Help

British actor Daniel Day-Lewis could make Oscars history on Sunday night, if he wins a third Best Actor award for his role in Steven Spielberg's Lincoln.

Day-Lewis, whose previous victories were for his work in My Left Foot and There Will Be Blood, studied at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre school.

Tutors there, and his Hollywood peers, are full of praise for the actor's talent.
