Daniel Day-Lewis’s performance in “There Will Be Blood“ has the inside chance at the Oscar.
There are some things in life that are perfect.
A San Diego summer day. Bar Rafaeli. Tiger Woods’s golf swing. The Godfather. The 2007 New England Patriots. Oh, wait.
It appears that Daniel Day-Lewis’s performance in There Will Be Blood can be added to this list. At least according to George Clooney, imdb.com reports.
Clooney, nominated for Best Actor in this year’s Oscars for his roll in Michael Clayton, concedes Oscar defeat to Day-Lewis, claiming that no one has a chance against the British actor.
Also nominated for Best Actor is Viggo Mortensen for Eastern Promises, Tommy Lee Jones for In the Valley of Elah, and Johnny Depp for Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.
After watching Day-Lewis in his nominated role, Clooney says, "If you want my honest opinion, I think it's going to be Daniel Day-Lewis. He sort of irritates all of us because he's so good. I'll tell you right now, I don't like him!"
The Academy Awards will air on February 24.
