The Oscars are Sunday, and Daniel Day Lewis is the best actor front runner as "Lincoln." Let's look at "Lincoln" by the numbers.
-- "Lincoln" made more than $220 million at the box office and was nominated for 12 Oscars
-- 12 years is how long director Steven Spielberg spent researching the film.
-- 20 is how many years older Sally Field is than Mary Todd Lincoln was during the Civil War, and 25 is how many pounds Sally gained to play her.
-- In 2012 there were two films depicting the life of Lincoln. These were the Oscar nominated "Lincoln" and the slightly more fictional "Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter."
-- Describing his experience playing Lincoln, Daniel Day Lewis said, "I never, ever felt that depth of love for another human being that I never met."
-- Abe Lincoln only had 18 months of formal schooling, but he taught himself law and was admitted to the Illinois Bar.
-- Lincoln was our first Republican president, and the first president born outside the original 13 colonies. He was our 16th president, and the first to have a beard.
-- He was the first of four U.S presidents to be assassinated. The others were James Garfield, William McKinley, and John F. Kennedy.
-- Lincoln had four children. But sadly only one, Robert Todd Lincoln, lived to adulthood.
