Meryl Best Actress

Meryl Best Actress, In a surprise that clearly shocked even her, acting legend Meryl Streep won the Best Actress Academy Award on Sunday (February 26) for her performance as Margaret Thatcher in “The Iron Lady.” It’s Streep’s third Oscar; she won in 1979 for her supporting turn in “Kramer vs. Kramer” and for Best Actress in 1983 for “Sophie’s Choice.”
Her nomination for “The Iron Lady” was her 17th, the most of any actor in film history. She’s received 13 nominations in the 29 years since her last win.
“When they called my name, I had this feeling I could hear half of America going, ‘Oh no, come on. Her? Again?’ But, whatever,” Streep joked from the podium.
In the lead-up to the awards, the race seemed to be a two-way contest between Golden Globe winner Streep and Davis, who took home the Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Actress. But Davis was easily the front-runner. Her film, “The Help,” was by far the most successful of all the films nominated in the Best Actress category, and she was the only contender whose film was also nominated for Best Picture.
Streep even embraced her former co-star Davis on her way to the podium. The two were both nominated — Streep for Best Actress and Davis for Supporting Actress — for their turns in 2008′s “Doubt.”
