Spielberg's Lincoln Takes Home Two Oscars


Despite a big Oscar-themed celebration at the Lincoln Presidential Museum Sunday, the actual Oscar ceremony was something of a disappointment for the creators and fans of the movie “Lincoln.”

 

Even though it had the most nominations, with 12, the Steven Spielberg film took home only two trophies.

 

But one was for star Daniel Day-Lewis, who won Best Actor for a role that he spent time in Springfield researching.

 

In another sign of the respect that Hollywood holds for Lincoln, Oscar host Seth McFarlane drew groans from the audience with a joke about Lincoln’s assassination, prompting him to respond: “150 years and it’s still too soon?”
