The Euro-Oscars

The media in the US is making such a big deal of the fact thatall the acting oscars were taken by European actors this year. Chris Matthews, in his usual shortsighted way (after all, he thinks drinking coffee at Starbucks is a sign of urban sophistication) made such a big deal of being proud that this can happen in America---as if it is the oly place where this sort of thing happens. Don't get me wrong, I think it is great that this can indeed happen here, as it shows that US culture remains well coupled to the World, but doesn't the American media realize how often American actors and directors win awards in Europe? Cannes, Venice anyone?
