|A well deserved win for Meryl Streep is the highlight of the show.|
Meryl Streep wins Best Actress! Very, very much deserved. Streep’s third Oscar win defines this year’s Oscar race for me. Never have I rooted for an actor so strongly in a race, yet had the slightest hint of doubt at her prospects of winning. I’m glad, furthermore, that Streep had such a worthy competitors, for the tight race shows that Streep won on the merit of her performance in The Iron Lady and not for a win that would be reread as a lifetime achievement award. Offering a classy speech and unafraid to show her joy, Streep’s trip to the podium once again reminded me why she’s the best in the biz.
