20- Daniel Day Lewis
|Daniel Day-Lewis. Looking Irish. Looking Roguish.|
Greatest Performance - Bill the Butcher (Gangs of New York)
Honourable Mention- Gerry Conlon (In The Name of The Father)Worst Performance- Daniel Plainview (Their Will Be Blood)
Gerry Conlon is his most interesting character because Gerry is actually very unlikable though this film. He is a layabout and generally wisps through life. But the extraordinary circumstances that he finds himself in, change him so very much. Day-Lewis plays this with intense understatement. Also I think Pete is the greatest scene partner he ever had. Pete clobbers Daniel in many of the scenes they share in this film and that is no easy feat.
