(Thanks to the Courtyard By Marriott Century City / Beverly Hills) The 2012 Academy Awards featured the only Oscar upset of the Sunday evening – that belonged to the legendary Meryl Streep – and it was predicted by yours truly.

It happened on Saturday, and while I was being interviewed by Daniel Sutton, who works for Australia’s News One and is based in LA.

I gave my extensive set of reasons for the prediction in an earlier blog post, writing:

Streep’s frequency of nominations, and especially over the last five years, means she could have won and one could have written up any narrative about how popular she is for that year she took home the golden man. It just so happens that story line’s being dragged forward this time. And it’s a perfect cover for the simple fact that neither the Academy or BAFTA wanted to see the replay of a SAG 2012 moment: two black women take home Oscars on the same night for the same movie.

But why didn’t I say that for the News One audience? Pure and simple, I just didn’t want to go there.

Stay tuned.
