LETTERS FROM THE ISLAND: Oscars not an awarding experience


Niagara Gazette — • It seemed a privilege to have seen “Life of Pi,” which won more statues than any other nominee.

• Quentin Tarantino projects a complete lack of respect for his clientele, of which we’re not a part, but if we were, the feeling would be mutual.

• Sorry she fell up the stairs, but by that hour SOMETHING had to happen.

• Michele Obama announces the Best Picture winner? Doug, who voted for Romney, says why not? For decades, White Houses of all political persuasions have welcomed championship athletes. It’s not about politics, it’s about the office. This is not an opinion shared in our household. Polly gagged. She’d anticipated the rarity of 3 ½ Obama-free hours.

We wonder if and when we’ll ever land on Planet Oscar again. In the family living room, we enjoyed the company much better than the show. See you at the movies.
