Meryl Streep has won the 2012 Academy Award for Best Actress. Her role as Margaret Thatcher beat out Glen Close, Viola Davis, Mara Rooney, and Michelle Williams.

In her speech, Streep, who appeared to be wearing a gaudy curtain, said that she could almost hear half of America groaning about her victory. I find that hard to believe. After three hours watching Billy Crystal, I imagine America was all groaned out.
