A noblewoman from middle-earth.

"The women of this country learned long ago, those without swords can still die upon them"

Daniel Day-Lewis’ almost impossible performance as a man with cerebral palsy earned him a well-deserved Oscar in 1989 for Best Actor over the heavily favoured Tom Cruise in ‘Born on the Fourth of July’ and Morgan Freeman in ‘Driving Miss Daisy’. The Academy was still riding the wave of awarding Dustin Hoffman a second Best Actor prize a year earlier for his performance as a mentally challenged individual in ‘Rain Man’ and since Day-Lewis’ performance was superior to Hoffman’s, the Academy had to recognize him. Day-Lewis probably would have won anyway as his performance was hard to ignore and he had never received any acting nominations from the Academy before this film despite turning in great work in such films as ‘The Unbearable Lightness of Being’ and ‘My Beautiful Laundrette.’
