Daniel Day Lewis is not the only actor to earn 3 Oscars. There have been many, butboff the top of my head Jack Nicholson has 3, Meryl Streep has 3. Ingred Bergman had 3. And Kathryn Hepburn was the only actorvto earn 4.

Best ever performances worth checking out: Danial Day Lewis Gangs Of New York Meryl Streep Out Of Africa Sigourney Weaver Gorillas In The Mist Christopher Lambert Greystoke - Tarzan Robin Williams Awakenings , Toys, Bicentennial Man, Good Morning Vietnam , Dead Poets Society. I loved robin with a passion. What a wonderful lovely man x. Michal Gambon Dumbledore and many other movies Forgot his damn name!!! No Country For Old Men Another dudes name I forgot. The dude from CSI? In a movie called MANHUNTER. Caprio What’s Eating Gilbert Grape Pacino Carlitos Way (It’s up there with GodFather for me) Niro GodFather Part2 Val Kilmer Heat (that scene alone was worth a damn Oscar. Still breaks my heart) Nicholson One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest (If you ain’t seen this movie then watch it NOW) Ledger Dark Knight Sean Connery Untouchables James Caan Sonny in GodFather (probs my fave performance of all time) I can’t stress how much he deserved an Oscar. He was the star of the movie for me. Hated him with a passion yet sympathetic for what he did and his final scene is just something I have never forgotten. I never will. Christopher Walken Anything he is in Joe Pesci Goodfellas Probs the scariest I have ever been of someone in a movie other than Niro in Cape Fear Tim Roth Reservoir Dogs John Travolta Pulp Fiction. This changed my entire view of him and wished he was able to capture that magic more often. Hugo Weaving V For Vendetta. The best superhero movie of all time in my eyes Tom Hardy Bronson. When he got more famous I was expecting more of this but he majorly tones it down. Even in the Krays movie I was very disappointed cos he was fitting the market rather than totally letting off. Christian Bale Machinist Didn’t really love the movie but it was shocking the lengths he went and I gotta admire that. I’m gonna add someone here for one movie only cos it’s stupid but I genuinely feel he should have got some serious props for the performance and never did. Ashton Kutcher in Butterfly Effect 1. It’s a movie I didn’t wanna see and a mate was banging on about it. I was blown away by him and again hoped he was a gem in the dirt. Sadly it’s really the only time I have rated him. It really is a special movie to me. Such a god damn brilliant idea. The wheelchair scene 10/10 TomHanks Forest Gump among many others. You can’t not mention him. I could write this all day about movies and performances. Watch a classic old movie from around the 50s called The Time Machine. Same actor who was in THE BIRDs So many classic actors. For method it’s Lewis , Pacino , Niro and even the likes of Williams for me. He could portray such a sweet child like mind but terrify you within a second or a look. That’s not easy

For me there are only three Method actors. 1. Dilip Kumar and Marlon Brando 2. Daniel Day Lewis 3. Dustin Hoffman (not all roles) And there remarkable performance are. Dilip Kumar. Devdas, Mughal e Azam, Naya Dour, Madumati, Ganga Jamna, Andaz Marlon Brando The Godfather Viva Zapata Street car named desire On the waterfront Last tango in Paris Daniel Day Lewis All roles except few Dustin Hoffman The Graduate A little big Man Lenny (awesome performance) Kramer vs Kramer Tootsie Rain man

daniel day lewis is a best actor

No mention of female artists..
Chris Dell (10 days ago)
This isn't "METHOD ACTING" - these examples are just purely research. Almost all approaches "research." Method acting is using the various pathways of self-reflection to get an honest emotional response that was championed by Lee Strasberg.

WTF ...James franco & shia labeouf ?? 😂 😂 😂 ... What about these names .... Tom Hanks , Denzel washington , Leo Di caprio , Johnny depp , Matthew mccounahey , brad pitt , Gary oldman & Vincent d onoforio ?? .. Maybe the category is bigger for the above mentioned names ...Like the Top 10 versatile actors ...?? 😜

Funk O'Matic (14 days ago)
greatest male methods: day lewis de niro bale pacino brando gary oldman nicholson jeffrey wright viggo mortensen btw..jared leto's turn in dallas buyers club is way better method wise than ledger's joker.
Funk O'Matic (14 days ago)
dustin hoffman number 19..while Heath "one great role" Ledger in the Top 3.. ABOVE.. let's see.. Pacino, Brando & De Niro..?! that's it...m so sick of today's so-called movie "fans/buffs"..watchmojo & their STUPID lack of reference (movies & music) OVERRATING The Dark Knight. it's a great movie, but to keep forcing it down to our throat as this absolute cinematic treasure, like Godfather, citizen kane..ir what have u...BULLSHIT. N now saying heath ledger as this BRILLIANT thespian after just ONE outstanding role/performance...🙄🙄 ENOUGH with this SHIT...😠😠 m fine if he were in the bottom 3..with likes of shia... heck! even joaquin's a better actor in general than heath. look..heath was goid, had potential..n turned in a surprisingly memorable Joker..but, let's not kid ourselves...n disrespect those veterans, more proven acting icons..with way more awesome credentials... this stupidity just bugs the shit outta me, man... i know it's just a stupid subjective list, but..if it's for public consumption..at least don't be DUMB about it.. like the horror music score list..where WM put in the disco-flaved Friday the 13th 3D..up high, instead of the OSCAR-winning Omen theme...😠😠😠😖😖😖😤😤😤😵😵😵

Heath Ledger’s Joker is the most overrated performance in the most overrated movie of the last 15 years.

No Gary Oldman? Seriously? Daniel Day Lewis is the ONLY person on that list that displays comparable talent.

Patrick Doyle (19 days ago)
Al Pacino

I understand all the arguments however leboeuf on the list is foolish
Awesometwins 2 (19 days ago)
The peanist. Really?
TNO73 (20 days ago)
DDL is arguable the greatest, but Jack Nicholson, Gary Oldman, Montgomery Clift. And again while I agree with DDL Brando & Clift were some of the first & still some of the most revered at it which should give them a higher spot.
Nicholson should be #1 The departed, One flew over the cukoos nest The shinning Anger Management, cmon
Galatasaray 1905 (21 days ago)
Al Pacino is legend an actor🎩
Hugh Stinnette (21 days ago)
Lebouf? Are you kidding me? The greatest film actor - who singularly reinvented film acting - is #5! You could have shown so respect by mentioning the first method actor, Paul Muni, with his performance in the original 'Scarface', the film that created the gangster genre. Oh, and btw, Christian Bale is Welsh, not English (maybe you meant the mythical"British"?).
Saurabh Tripathi (23 days ago)

De Niro or Brando for number one, the only real debate, with Day Lewis in third, but well above all the others.
Tony Stark (2 months ago)

Niranjan Sripada (2 months ago)
At the end of every video Mojo lady says "write it in the comments section" do you even give a shit to read the comments ever, Mojo? Yet to find a video of yours' I agree with at least half the list
Vinoth Kumar (2 months ago)
choi min sik should have been on list..
Morten Aanstad (1 month ago)
+Vinoth Kumar If I'm going to believe that it's worth a shot, then you need to persuade me
Vinoth Kumar (1 month ago)
+Morten Aanstad i didn't mean to be persuasive ,i just said that because it is worth a shot.. incase u need to be sure watch the reviews of the movie. it was released in 2003 it doesn't got attention at the time of release i just suggested its good the rest isup to you.
Morten Aanstad (1 month ago)
+Vinoth Kumar You have two type of cult movies; one of them is a movie that's practically made an impact for its cult status and has slowly become more mainstream as a result (think "Fight Club" and "Rocky Horror Picture Show"), while the other one is really only well-known in a very small environment isolated from anyone that isn't part of it (your movie). I do care about Asian movies if they've actually made an impact like with Seven Samurai, Godzilla, Battle Royale, or 36th Chambers of Shaolin, but only saying "Just watch it. It's really one of the greatest" isn't very persuasive
Vinoth Kumar (1 month ago)
+Morten Aanstad don't pretend like u know every cult movies released in every language .. of course Old boy is cult classic, there is no point on arguing. do some search and watch the movie. it's not only critically acclaimed also fan favourite maybe u doesn't care much about Asian film
Morten Aanstad (1 month ago)
+Vinoth Kumar If it was so great, then I would have heard about it. There are millions of movies out there to choose from, so why should I pick a cult movie that hasn't made any impact worldwide?

Vespertili Kildem (2 months ago)
Is this list by importance? I hope not. All these are awesome actors. But... Jack mentioned, and Heath official? Seriously? I'm sorry, but before The Dark Knight Ledger was mister none. I RECOGNIZE and admire his performance, his skills, but Jack has a fucking 40 years+ career.
BobbyKing (2 months ago)
yep ikr how is Jack not on the list but heath ledger. Seriously when you say the only thing your think of is Joke. But Jack had many more including the joker smh. How is he not on the list!!
