Only forty actors, including both lead and supporting actors and both women and men, have won two or more Oscars for acting performances. It's no surprise that Sean Penn, one of film's virtuosos, is among that elite company, winning for his roles in 'Milk' and 'Mystic River.'Which Oscar-winning performance so you think is better?

I think both performances are amazing but yeah, I think 'Mystic River' too. He's great all the way through but the scene that I think is perhaps the greatest 60 seconds of acting I may have ever seen, if it's possible for me to choose like that, is the scene when he first finds out about his daughter. Wow.

That's the very same scene I think of. Him crying, angry all the while being held back by his fellow officers. It is Penn's best scene performance.

Mystic River marked a before and after in my admiration for Sean Penn, although I have not seen Milk, I dare to take a risk for Mystic River, in this film it makes such a heartbreaking interpretation that it is difficult to imagine any that is better. Sean Penn transmits the feeling of restlessness and resentment of a father who has just lost his daughter in an incredible way.

I think it's now up to 42 actors with two awards.
