I love Meryl Streep who is the most versatile actress I've ever seen on film and I am glad she won; however, let's not forget that Katherine Hepburn won four Oscars for Best Actress.

yes and its a good thing that they didnt have the internet back than so people could rip on her choice of clothing her makeup her hair and her "she won to many times" crowd

I was thrilled that Streep won, especially after being passed over for her amazing performance in "Julie & Julia" last year.

She really was brilliant as Julia, wasn't she?

She was insanely good as Julia Child. Arguably an even harder role -- Julia Child's accent and mannerisms even more peculiar than Thatcher's.

Moviegoers are at this point so USED to Meryl Streep being amazing and phenomenal we don't see her talent ( for the miracle it is which can only be compared to Katherine Hepburn) she deserves every nomination and every award she has ever won plus more- but the academy feels they have to spread the wealth to her detriment (but you can tell she acts because she loves it)
Thanks Meryl.

I'm curious, why does almost every wh-ite poster here use the phrase "Meryl deserved." It sounds very defensive, as if you know in your heart that what was done to Viola Davis was wrong but you have a desire to justify the results because it validates your feelings of white supremacy. You need to believe that she "deserved" to win because in some way it validates you as a whi-te person.

Viola Davis was very good, but she simply did not give a better performance this year than Meryl. The oscars are frequently given for political or sentimental reasons, but this year that award was given on merit. Nothing wrong was done to Viola Davis, and I suspect that Ms. Davis would be sickened by your attack on Meryl Streep.

Meryl Streep is a much much better actress than Katherine Hepburn (who always sounded and looked exactly the same).

Yeah I actually agree.

Meryl Streep is a national treasure. She has reached the most elevated heights of fame and prestige in her craft, but when she speaks, she seems so humble and grateful about her success.

She was NOT humble last night.

What fantasy world do you live in? She was absolutely not humble last night.

And her dress too! Looks like she and Oscar were related! As they say, one must dress for success! Go Meryl! Love you in Gold.

A great Actress who may have deserved to win on many previous occasions but not for "The Iron Lady". It's akin to giving an Oscar to Faye Dunaway for "Mommie Dearest"

You're absolutely right. Plus, "The Iron Lady" was Hollywoodized. So wish it had portrayed Margaret Thatcher as she really was as PM. I wish Streep had insisted on it.

It's not unlike last year. Natalie Portman won for "Black Swan." Portman's acting was excellent, the movie, blecch.

I also like Meryl Streep, but I like her in more realistic and funny roles like "It's Complicated". I know movies like that would never get nominated for an Oscar, which makes me like them even more.

If this film wasnt backed by harvey weinstein, she would have never won! neither would The Artist! This guy ruins the show for me again! This is the second time Viola have lost to an actress backed by Weinstein. Yeah we all know Meryl is a great actress, but this award was not deserved! Harvey Weinstein should be stopped!!!!!!!!!!!

Do you want to enlighten us as to how Mr. Weinstein has influenced everyone at the Academy to vote the way he wanted?

My pet bird died... I'm positive Mr. Weinstein was behind it. The man is evil. (sarcasm)

Thanks for wasting my time with your silly post.

I was so happy that Meryl won and she was given the award by my favorite male actor, Colin Firth.

A tough call between two of the most talented actresses working today.
In terms of sheer talent, I honestly think Viola Davis is every bit as good as Meryl Streep. Hollywood is crazy not to throw more leading roles her way.
04:50 PM on 02/27/2012
Why would you ever think America would say oh no not her again? You did a spectacular job bringing a world's political icon to life on the screen. Though all the other actresses gave brilliant performances yours was just a little bit more. Your dress was one of the best of the night you matched your Oscar.

I would agree except that Thatcher was mischaracterized. I was disappointed that Streep did not demand an authentic portrayal of Thatcher. And Streep's dress was too heavy for her matronly figure. I'm not criticizing her figure, just that the dress was too, too much.

Meryl Streep's 2012 win makes up for the Academy's snub of Faye in Mommy Dearest :)

Meryl in Sophie's Choice, She should have gotten at least 5 Oscars for that performance.
04:25 PM on 02/27/2012
I thought the movie was brilliant and Meryl Streep was amazing in it. People tend to throw around those terms but this time it is absolutely true. I was very glad she won the Oscar because she deserved it. Viola Davis was absolutely wonderful in The Help and I think she would have won if Meryl Streep's hadn't been so incredibly brilliant in such a difficult role.

Such a shame, though, that Thatcher was not portrayed accurately.
04:24 PM on 02/27/2012
This was the first year in a few that I watched the award show. Im glad Billy Crystal hosted and I am very happy to have seen Meryl Streep win her third award. She gave a great acceptance speech!

"Whatever." Old, hackneyed, trite.
