The actor secured a place in Oscars history last night

More on the Oscars:

Daniel Day-Lewis acted his way into the record books by winning his third Best Actor Oscar at last night's Academy Awards for playing U.S. President Abraham Lincoln in "Lincoln."

He is now the first man to win three Best Actor Oscars in the 85-year history of the Academy Awards.

The  55 year old was the forerunner to win the Academy Award for his intense performance as one of America's most revered presidents.

During his speech, the actor thanked his wife Rebecca for "putting up with many strange men over the yeard" referring to the acting method he uses in which he completley immerses himself in his roles.
