Meryl Streep wins Best Actress Award for The Iron Lady
“The evening’s true golden girl wearing Lanvin takes the stage to chants of “Meryl, Meryl, Meryl.” She epitomizes all that is right in Hollywood and for a minute this warm recognition of her extraordinary talent and her acknowledgment of 29 year wait between Oscars makes the evening seems perfect. She gives a wonderfully heartfelt speech thanking her husband first noting that spouses always get mentioned when the winners are being played off with music. She brings many in the audience to tears by telling the crowd she wants to thank all her friends those here and those who have ‘departed.’ Streep seems to sum up the mood of the night perfectly – nostalgic but hopeful”. – from Diane Clehane’s article
