So many non-Americans received Oscars last night, I began to wonder if I was watching the Academy Awards. After all, this is the America which usually has a world series and invites only one country! The major awards for best male and female actor and male and female supporting actor went to an Irishman, a French woman, a Spaniard and a Brit. Plus Brits won many of the technical awards for film editing, sound and set design. It was fun and revealing to watch the entire event, rather than the sound bites I get in Oz. The event ran from about 3pm to 9pm California time.
