Watch Daniel Day-Lewis' historic Oscars win

IRISH citizen Daniel Day-Lewis made Oscar history last night by becoming the first man to win the best actor award three times.

Day-Lewis won the award for his portrayal of former US president Abraham Lincoln in Steven Spielberg's biopic, Lincoln.

Accepting his award from Meryl Streep, Day-Lewis said: "I really don't know how any of this happened. I do know I've received much more than my fair share of good fortune in my life,"

Day-Lewis previously won the award for his performances in There Will be Blood and My Left Foot.
