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.

Though it looks nothing like its predecessors Iron Man and Iron Man 2, The Iron Lady does look like it gives Meryl Streep ample opportunity to chew the scenery as the conservative Prime Minister of the UK, Margaret Thatcher. Plus keep in mind that this is a teaser. There’s still a chance that Jim Broadbent will be outfitted with laser whips in the longer trailer.

This teaser, however, is all about the reveal of Streep’s impression of Thatcher which comes off more as a modified Julia Child. Before Streep is revealed we see two campaign advisers attempting to pimp her ride so to speak. They speak directly into the camera and critique her hat, high voice, and pearls. To which, Thatcher replies, “The pearls are non-negotiable.” I guess it’s cute, but I was mostly just happy to see this wasn’t a teaser for another Madea movie. (The Guardian)

Actress Meryl Streep is famous for completely disappearing into her roles, and it appears that her upcoming performance as Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady, which regrettably is not a sequel to Iron Man. What it is is a movie about “how Thatcher dominated Britain’s political landscape in her role as the country’s prime minister.” And let’s face it, another way for Streep to get an Oscar nomination.

Anyway, the photo, which you can see a larger version of below, shows Streep as Thatcher next to Jim Broadbent as Thatcher’s husband, Denis. Gaze at the two of them, in rapturous celebration of the slaughter of the sacred virgin. I can’t wait to see this movie! (Collider)

Proving that there’s no woman alive or dead that she can’t imitate with authenticity, Meryl Streep has morphed into former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

Pathé UK has released a first look of Streep as The Iron Lady. Now in her second week of filming, Streep hopes to do justice to the character.”I am trying to approach the role with as much zeal, fervour and attention to detail as the real Lady Thatcher possesses – I can only hope my stamina will begin to approach her own,” says Streep.

Based off a shoulder-pads and hair helmet basis alone, I’d say she’s nailed it. Check out this side-by-side comparison.

I doubt there’s another actor alive who could pull this off as well. Except for that guy who played Emperor Palpatine. (Deadline)
