Daniel Day-Lewis Backlash

Daniel Day-Lewis may have just won his second Oscar for There Will Be Blood, but some have already begun challenging the praise he’s received for his scenery-chewing performance.

They say that Day-Lewis’ motivations are unclear, that his acting is gimmicky, and that his histrionics take the viewer out of the action. In other words, they think he’s a ham. Of course, hamming it up has always been a pretty good way to win yourself a gold statue.
