Movie-Still Monday Oscar Edition: Willem Dafoe

Shadow of a Vampire
Willem Dafoe in Shadow of the Vampire (2000)

This year, Willem Dafoe received his third Oscar nomination for The Florida Project, playing the manager of a down-and-out motel near Disney World (aka the Happiest Place on Earth).  Dafoe received his second Oscar nomination for portraying Max Schreck, the star of the silent classic Nosferatu (1922), in Shadow of the Vampire (2000).  Dafoe brillantly embodies Schreck, masterfully making what could have been a characature into a work of art.
