Performance of the Day

Film: "Coal Miner's Daughter"
Character: Loretta Lynn
Year: 1980

Upon first sight, Sissy Spacek is kind of a funny looking gal, but that hasn't stopped her from conquering Hollywood with hits, including her Oscar-winning role in "Coal Miner's Daughter". Based on the life of country music legend Loretta Lynn, Spacek makes this part her own (even singing all the songs herself). With a supporting cast that includes Tommy Lee Jones and Beverly D'Angelo, Spacek is fantastic in a role that requires she age from twelve to thirty.
