Meryl Streep onOscar Win- ‘I CouldHear Half ofAmerica Going ‘OhNo, Not Again”


The Iron lady is back!
Last night Hollywood
actress Meryl Streep bagged
her third Oscar award at
the 84th Academy Awards,
her first in 30 years.
Streep who won the ‘Best
Actress’ award for her role
as Margaret Thatcher in 2011
movie ‘The Iron Lady’ came
dressed in a golden gown,
blending in with the theme
colour of the awards.
The last time the US actress
(and occasional singer) won the
award was in 1982 after her
first win in 1979.
Streep edged out Glenn Close,
Viola Davis, Rooney
Mara and Michelle Williams to
win the big prize.
Pundits describe Streep’s win as
a close tie between herself and
African-American Davis who
was hoping to break Halle
Berry’s record as being the only
woman of African American
descent to have won the
award for Best Actress. Davis
played lead role in drama movie
‘ The Help’.
Revered movie director one-
time Oscar winner Martin
Scorsese lost the ‘Best
Director’ award to Michel
Hazanavicius but was
honoured by almost every
winner of the night. Scorsese
was nominated for the
adventure-drama film ‘Hugo’
which bagged five awards, the
highest of the night alongside
‘The Artist’.
Scorsese won the award for
Best Director for the same
movie at the Golden Globe
Awards in January this year
and was a recipient of the
BAFTA Academy Fellowship
Award in February
The emotional moment though
most have been when African-
American Octavia Spencer won
the award for ‘Best Supporting
Actress’ for the drama ‘ The
Help’. Co-star
It was also a night for another
veteran Canadian theatre, film
and television actor Christopher
Plummer who walked away
with the ‘Best Supporting
Actor’ award for his role in the
2010 romantic comedy-drama
film ‘ Beginners’. It was the 82
year old’s first Oscar win.
The biggest OMG moment of
the night had to be
when Sacha Baron
Cohen came dressed as
‘General Aladeen’ from his
upcoming film ‘ The Dictator’
managing to upstage
Hollywood’s most beautiful
stars on the Oscar red carpet!
