It is not easy to get an Oscar nomination. Nor is it a walk in the park to win an Oscar. Some actors have shown that they only need to perform for a few minutes to snag the coveted reward, regardless of the challenges that come with winning the prestigious award.
These actors have shown how easy it is to win an Oscar, from Anthony Hopkins’ victory for his 16-minute appearance in ‘The Silence of the Lambs’ to Heath Ledger playing a fifth of a two-hour film.
For playing Queen Elizabeth I, actress Judi Dench won an Oscar for 8 minutes, a win she didn’t think she deserved.
Judi Dench is a reputable actress
Dench, the daughter of Eleanora Olive and Reginald Arthur, was born in New York on December 9, 1934.
In York, Dench went to Mount School.
The parents of Dench supported her in getting a permanent contract with a theatre. She studied as a stage designer, but when her brother Jeff went to the Central School of Speech and Drama, she became interested in acting.
Dench appeared as Ophelia in Hamlet on stage in 1957. She worked with the Old Vic Company from 1957 to 1961. Dench performed Katherine in Henry V during her work with the Old Vic, and Juliet in the play Romeo and Juliet in the 1960s.
The 86-year old actress made her TV debut in The Third Hidden in 1964. She appeared in 1966 in Four in the Morning, which won her a BAFTA Award in a Leading Film Role for Most Promising Newcomer.
She won a BAFTA Award for Best Actress in 1968 for her John Hopkins performance. In 1979, for her role as Hazel Wiles in Giant’s Shoulders, Dench won a BAFTA nomination. She was later cast in the role of Boss M of James Bond.

The first woman to play M. was Dench.

Brown, Never Dies Tomorrow, Tea with Mussolini and The World Is Not Enough.
Her most notable role is in Shakespeare in Love, where she played Queen Elizabeth I, while Dench is known for acting in various movies over the years.
The depiction of Queen Elizabeth I by Dench was exceptional.
The advice from Judi Dench to her younger self is very surprising.
The Shakespeare in Love film tells of the famous playwright’s search for love. Shakespeare worked at the Rose Theatre as a playwright. He has writer’s block, however, and tries to seduce Rosaline so that she can persuade Burbage to buy the play on which he is writing.
In Shakespeare’s play, the daughter of a wealthy merchant disguises herself as a man and auditions to appear. Viola de Lesseps is her name and she has always had a greater interest in other plays by Shakespeare. She captures his heart, but after he starts to interrogate her, he finally runs away.
At Viola’s parents’ home, Shakespeare sneaks into a ball.
The faction is the marriage proposal to Viola by Lord Wessex. Lord Wessex gets wind of the intentions of Shakespeare and tries to kill him, causing Shakespeare to lie about his identity.
They profess their love for each other after meeting Viola on her balcony before her nurse finds them. Inspired by his muse Viola, he quickly transforms the play, first called Romeo and Ethel, the Pirate’s Daughter, into what is now known as Romeo and Juliet.
Shakespeare arrives disguised as her cousin when Viola appears before the tribunal to obtain permission for her marriage to Wessex. He challenges to a wager for Wessex. Queen Elizabeth I announced that the matter would be determined by her.
For her role in “Shakespeare in Love.” Dench won an Oscar.
Although Dench did not appear predominantly in the film, her performance was still outstanding.
Dench performed for eight minutes, according to Mental Floss, bringing to life an intelligent and fearsome Queen Elizabeth I.
Dench won an Oscar for Best Actress in a Supporting Role.
The British actress even joked about her Oscar win, admitting that she didn’t have much screentime so she thought she should “get a little bit of it.”
