Real (Reel) People Win Oscars: 2015 Edition

When it comes to win an Academy Award, recent years have shown that not any bio-pic performance means a guaranteed nomination, but if you get nominated for your performance playing a real person, then there is a good chance you will win.

Of the past 10 years (20 Lead Actor/Actress winners), 12 of these winners have won for playing real life people. That's 60% of winners since the 2003 ceremony.

• In 2014 Eddie Redmayne played Stephen Hawking, the famous theoretical physicist won the Oscar for Best Actor (post here)
• In 2013 Matthew McConaughey played AIDs drug smuggler Ron Woodroof and won the Oscar for Best Actor. (post here)
• In 2012 Daniel Day-Lewis played Abraham Lincoln and won the Best Actor award (his third Oscar win) (post here)
• In 2011 Meryl Streep played the well known British prime minister Margaret Thatcher and won the Best Actress prize (her third Oscar) (post here)
• In 2010 Colin Firth played King George VI, stuttering British royalty at the dawn of the radio era and won for Best Actor. (post here)
• In 2009 Sandra Bullock played a surprise hero as the Southern mother Leigh Ann Tuohy and won for Best Actress.
• In 2008 Sean Penn played controversial politician Harvey Milk and won the Oscar for Best Actor.(post here)
• In 2007 Marion Cotillard played French singer Ediath Piaf and won the Oscar for Best Actress. (post here)
• In 2006 Helen Mirren played Queen Elizabeth II and won the Oscar for Best Actress.
• In 2006 Forrest Whitaker played Ugandan dictator Idi Amin and won the Oscar for Best Actor
• In 2005 Reese Witherspoon played country music celeb June Carter and won the Oscar for Best Actress.
• In 2005 Philip Seymour Hoffman played author Truman Capote and won the Oscar for Best Actor.

The non-biopic winners from the past 10 years:Jiulianne Moore (Still Alice),  Cate Blanchett (Blue Jasmine)Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Lining Playbook), Jean Dujardin (The Artist), Natalie Portman (Black Swan), Jeff Bridges (Crazy Heart), Kate Winslet (The Reader), and  Daniel Day-Lewis (There Will Be Blood)

I wouldn't expect 2015 to be different. As a result we can almost plan on either Best Actor Oscar winner or Best Actress winner going to a performer who played in a biographical film as a "Real (Reel) Person."

Yes, it's always a biopic or a disease. You listed the ones who won for non-biopics, almost all of them had, however a disease: Julianne Moore (Alzheimers), Cate Blanchett (depression and whole bunch of other mental diseases), Jennifer Lawrence (bipolar), Natalie Portman (I don't which one, but it has to be some mental illness), Jeff Bridges (not really a disease, but alcoholism), Kate Winslet (well, here we have one that's not a biopic or disease role along with Jean Dujardin). Along with that, a bunch of the biopic winner also had a disease: Eddie Redmayne (ALS), Matthew McConaughey (AIDS), Meryl Streep (Dementia) and Colin Firth (stuttering). I'm starting to wonder if people win any Oscars for playing a normal person... Well there's the supporting Oscar, but that usually goes to a "mom"-role, like Patricia Arquette this year, or for the comic relief role like Octavia Spencer (also a mom in The Help)... It's a pattern, for sure.xD xD

I think that acting the role of a real person from the real life is awesome, as an actor can read a real biography and make the overall understanding of the character. That's why I like writing application essays for EssayDot.

Jika mereka menunjukkan kecenderungan untuk melakukan Info Cipto Junaedy hal ini, membuat janji untuk pergi dan melihat mereka sesegera mungkin. Jangan membuat janji untuk minggu depan; tidak membuat janji untuk besok, bagaimana dengan siang ini? Bagaimana di dua puluh menit? Antusiasme adalah segalanya.
