With Christmas over and a late Easter my wife and I decided that we needed a break.

Every week I prayed that nobody I knew would come in and see me dressed like that.

This year's Oscars ceremony was unique in many respects. Ang Lee's Namaste only highlighted this uniqueness. Although the function itself was very much American in its outer trappings, the spirit reflected the effect of globalising on one of the most prestigious film awards.
