Question: What movies did Daniel Day-Lewis win his first two Best Actor Oscars for?

Answer: Daniel Day Lewis won his first Best Actor Academy Award for his role as Christy Brown in the 1989 movie ‘My Left Foot’.

The film is based on the real life of Irishman Christy Brown who suffered from cerebral palsy and as a result was only able to move his left foot.

The British actor then won his second Best Actor title in 2007 for the film ‘There Will Be Blood’ where he plays the character Daniel Plainview.

Daniel Day-Lewis once again won the Best Actor in a Leading role category at the 2013 Oscars. This time for playing the American President in the 2012 movie ‘Lincoln’, becoming the first person to ever win the award three times.
