Showing, once again, the impact of American culture around the world, here is a sampling of commentary about the Oscars from far-flung newspapers. Australia, disparate countries in Africa, India, and Thailand are represented here. The reach of American culture is indeed wide when a silly, show biz kids event can garner attention near and far.
Australia: Sydney Morning Herald - Who knew Cate Blanchett was Australian?
Africa: AllAfrica - Check out hilarious tweet from Kenya runner Ben Kibe in the Kenyan The Star.
Thailand: BangkokPost – This prediction piece by Kong Rithdee pre-dates the actual event but is very funny. And he pretty much gets it right from 8,000 miles away.
India: Deccan Chronicle – Ballywood takes note….do we watch their Oscar awards?
