I really do agree with you. I think if it was anybody else giving the exact same performance, they would get credit for a fine performance, but not lauded as the favorite to win like Day-Lewis is. He's going to end up walking up to pick up his 3rd Oscar, while guys like Joaquin Phoenix and Bradley Cooper sit down and politely applaud, and that is frustrating to me.
