1st} Lincoln, 2nd) the impossible. Really a tear jerker! Lincoln for me was better because Daniel Day Lewis was just,,,,,, well there are no words to describe his perrfformance. Plus I am an avid american history fan and I loved it. But THIS movie was a tear jerker, VERY emotional and worth admission. This was so much better than Django unchained, which to me was awful. I havent seen silver linings playbook yet, however, I think bradley cooper is up against daniel day lewis for best actor oscar.. sorry bradley no matter how good you did I dont see anyone beating daniel.
