OK. That is amazing. Wow. Daniel Day Lewis only bothers to crawl out of his hidey hole every few years, but the man always makes it worth it. This is all we’ve seen from Spielberg’s movie — written by Tony Kushner and based on Doris Kearns Goodwin’s novel — but it’s already clearly a frontrunner for ALL the Oscars. The rest of the cast doesn’t hurt, either: Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Robert Todd Lincoln, Tommy Lee Jones as Thaddeus Stevens, Jared Harris as Ulysses S. Grant, David Strathairn as William Seward, John Hawkes as Robert Latham, Sally Field as Mary Todd Lincoln, and Jackie Earle Haley as Alexander Stephens.

So, basically: Lincoln will occupy all the supporting actor noms.
