This round goes to Meryl Streep.
As the race to Oscar night continues, the best actress competition took another turn Sunday when The Iron Lady star took home top honors at the Orange British Academy Film Awards for her portrayal of Margaret Thatcher in the Franco-British biopic.
Streep, 62, who stumbled with one of her shoes as she headed to the stage – "That couldn't be worse," she said while accepting her award – told the audience she was "very proud" of her film, according to The Telegraph.
