And so it is. Just like you said it would be. Life goes easy on me. Most of the time. And so it is. The shorter story. No love, no glory. No hero in her sky.
I can’t take my eyes off of you.
I can’t take my eyes off you.
And so it is. You voted, you rejoiced, you grumbled, maybe shed a tear (so close, Marion, so close). And so it is. 64 Oscar-winning performances, hundreds of votes later, down to just 2. One woman. One man.
It’s Mathilda vs Hawkeye. Anne Boleyn vs John Proctor. Padmé Amidala vs Bill the Butcher. Jackie Kennedy vs Abraham Lincoln. Oscar winners Natalie Portman and Daniel Day-Lewis AKA Nina Sayers and Daniel Plainview now come face-to-face to decide who you (and I) have voted for as the Best Acting Performance by an Oscar-Winner of this Century.
It’s time. Three videos apiece – behind the scenes, a clip, and those Oscar winning moments. Take a deep breath. Off you go.
Natalie Portman as Nina Sayers in Black Swan
Daniel Day-Lewis as Daniel Plainview in There Will Be Blood
Comments please. Plenty to talk about.
