What If An Aussie Won An Oscar And Nobody Reported It?

You might not know that an attractive young Australian woman won an Oscar last night. Could the minimal reporting have something to do with the fact that the movie she co-produced was about US government torture, or could it be her post award comments:
"The current administration are a bunch of war criminals and they need to be stopped. People need to know what's going on.''
Bravo, Eva Orner.

NB: Orner's movie beat Michael Moore's "Sicko" for the award. She had dinner with Moore and others after the ceremony. I doubt he would have been too upset by her triumph.
