    "I was proud to be in this group of actors," Daniel Day-Lewis said backstage Sunday after winning the best actor Oscar, adding that he thought such actors as Emile Hirsch and Frank Langella gave outstanding performances this year but were not nominated. Separately, when asked about how he felt about aspects of "There Will Be Blood" finding their way into popular culture (including parodies of the film on "Saturday Night Live" and on Web sites), he said: "If something that you've done … gets absorbed into the culture in such a way that people make something else out of it … that's delightful to me." Of his time shooting "Blood," he said: "It was a very important time in my life. … My working partnership with Paul (Thomas Anderson) is something that I will cherish for the rest of my life. In fact, I really miss the day, and we speak a lot on the phone, but we don't have any excuse to. It's just shooting the breeze. We don't have anything to say anymore, but I just miss working with him every day, so it's a lovely thing to have this. And it may just mean … we have to begin to think about the fact that life goes on and we've been reluctant to acknowledge that. I was happy to explore Plainview's life, and I was reluctant to stop."Read more
