Top 75 Biographical Performances That Brought The Past To Life!


What is the truest sign of an award-winning acting performance? Well, when a star is able to re-create history, for starters. Channeling a different time, place and a well-known historical figure is no easy task. Talk about pressure! Sometimes we really have to hand it to Hollywood’s finest.

From to Ben Kingsley to Meryl Streep, take a look at these quality stars who’ve channeled legendary historical figures themselves to pull off some of the best acting performances of all time. But you be the judge: which performances do you think defied all logic and brought the past back to life?

#1. It’s time that we all accept it: the Kardashians will go down in history. Beyond that – Selma Blair truly looks like she could be a Kardashian! Hats off to Selma for her flawless portrayal of Kris Jenner in 2016’s hit, American Crime Story!

#2. Here is Ben Kingsley taking on the role of Mahatma Gandhi. His performance was lauded as one of the greats.

#3. Morgan Freeman took on the role of Nelson Mandela, in the critically-acclaimed film Invictus. Those are some big shoes to fill!

#4. And here is French actress Audrey Tautou as fashion icon Coco Chanel, in Coco Before Chanel.

#5. We won’t soon forget Liam Neeson’s impressive portrayal of Oskar Schindler in Schindler’s List, either.
