Aucuns Oscars [updated]

No, I won't be commenting on the Oscars.

Why would I?

I’ve many better things to do, as I’m sure you have.  And awards to people I don't admire for 'skills’ I find questionable performed in movies I'm never likely to watch mean less to me than ... the price of garlic in Goz Beida, Chad. 

Which is, by the way, about 1850 CFA Francs per kg.

UPDATE:  Penelope Cruz just described the Academy Awards as “a moment of unity for the world.” In the words of Tim Blair, “That’s it for me.”
