Oscars 2012: Meryl Streep wins Oscar for Best Actress
Though calling a win by such an incredible actress and classy lady an "upset" feels a bit off; it was, however, a category that many expected Viola Davis to win for her role in "The Help."
This was Streep's 17th nomination -- the most nominations of any actor -- and third win; the other two were for "Kramer vs. Kramer" and "Sophie's Choice."
The 62-year-old actress was also awarded a standing ovation, and noted, "I really understand that I'll never be up here again."
We'd beg to differ.
