Last night was Oscar Night, as you probably know. Normally I don’t give it any attention, feeling it is one of the dullest nights of the year, but because so many Kentuckians were nominated, I checked the news this morning to see how it turned out.
Whatever else you can say, you have to admit Kentucky won. Jennifer Lawrence, the best actress, is from Louisville. Daniel Day Lewis, the best actor, played Abraham Lincoln, probably the most important person ever born in Kentucky. And George Clooney won an award for his part in “Argo”; he was born in Lexington.
