I was prepared for "The Artist" to win, although I still think "The Descendants" was the best of the pictures nominated.

But Streep winning for best acttress? Better than VIola Davis? I think not. She was robbed as the academy tossed a career-achievement honor at one of its recurring favorites. Would love to see how the vote broke down, both by actress and demographically.

And now I have to hold back my gorge long enough to fiile once more.
