The awards season is well and truly underway, with the annual Golden Globes taking place this past Sunday in Beverley Hills, California.
The Golden Globes are a celebration of some of the movie industry’s top talent and this year was no exception. One performer at the forefront of awards conversations this year has been Daniel Day-Lewis, who left the Golden Globes with the award for Best Actor (Drama).
Day-Lewis’ performance in Steve Spielberg’s latest biopic ‘Lincoln’, sees him play the renowned 16th president of the United States and has been thrilling audiences and critics alike over the in US.
As he accepted the Golden Globe (his 7th nomination at the awards) he thanked Spielberg for ‘an experience that I’ll treasure until the end of my life’.
Widely regarded as one of the world’s greatest actors, Day-Lewis is a true example of what we can achieve with the right level of determination. He currently lives in Co. Wicklow, Ireland and like The Wild Geese, has experienced the majority of his success overseas, and awards like the Globes are testament to how far he has come.
Some see the Globes as an indicator to the Oscar results. Although this wasn’t the case last year for George Clooney, the last time Daniel Day-Lewis won a Golden Globe was for his role in ‘There Will Be Blood’ in January 2007. We all know what happened a few weeks later at the Oscars, so we could soon see this great actor win his third.
