  1. FOREIGN ACTORS SWEEP THE OSCARS

    by , 02-24-2008 at 09:12 PM (Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy)
    Well, Lou Dobbs will probably call on a boycott of movies. But if there was ever a testament to the fact that Americans are not insular and xenophobic, it's the fact that the most American of institutions - Hollywood - reflects the globalization of this country. I'm not a film historian, but I don't believe there has ever been another year when the winners of Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress all went to foreign performers. Here are international recipients of this year's Academy Awards:

    Javier Bardem - Spain - Best Supporting Actor - No Country for Old Men
    Alexandra Byrne - UK - Costume Design - The Golden Age
    Dante Ferretti and Francesca Lo Schiavo - Italy - Art Direction - Sweeney Todd
    Didier Lavergne - France - and Jan Archibald - UK - Makeup - La Vie en Rose
    Philippe Pollet-Villard - France - Live Action Short Film - Le Mozart des Pickpockets
    Suzie Templeton and Hugh Welshman - UK - Animated Short Film - Peter and the Wolf
    Stefan Ruzowitzky - Austria - Best Foreign Language Film - The Counterfeiters
    Tilda Swinton - UK - Best Supporting Actress - Michael Clayton
    Marion Cotillard - France - Best Actress - La Vie en Rose
    Glenn Hansard - Ireland and Marketa Irglova - Czech - Best Song - Once
    Dario Marianelli - Italy - Best Score - Atonement
    Daniel Day-Lewis - UK - Best Actor - There Will Be Blood

    [Update: I learned this morning that a foreign sweep of the actors categories happened in 1964. Live and learn].
  2. DESPITE WORLD TOURISM BOOM, US STILL BELOW 9/11 LEVELS

    by , 02-24-2008 at 06:16 PM (Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy)
    The Travel Industry Association has released Department of Commerce data showing the country is welcoming fewer tourists than we were before the September 11th attacks despite the fact that tourism around the world has skyrocketed in the last few years. The TIA is urging Congress to pass the Travel Promotion Act to promote US tourism overseas at no cost to American taxpayers.
  3. A NATIONAL SHAME

    by , 02-24-2008 at 04:03 PM (Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy)
    Soldiers risking their lives in Iraq were promised that they would go to the front of the line and quickly be naturalized as a token of our country's appreciation for their tremendous sacrifice. But the New York Times reports today that this promise is not being kept.
  4. IMMIGRANT OF THE DAY: CATE BLANCHETT - ACTRESS

    by , 02-24-2008 at 03:18 PM (Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy)

    Cate Blanchett has her primarily home in her native Australia, but she's regularly working in the US working. And working. And working. Tonight she has a chance to do what has never been done - win two Academy Awards in acting categories in a single year. She's up for best actress for Elizabeth: The Golden Age and for best supporting actress in the Bob Dylan biopic I'm Not There (she plays Bob Dylan believe it or not). She won an Academy
    Award for playing Katherine Hepburn in the Howard Hughes biopic The Aviator. She's been nominated two other times as well. She already has two movies completed that will be released later this year. One of them is the new Indiana Jones movie which I'm really eager to see.

  5. LUNCH WITH LOU

    by , 02-24-2008 at 06:14 AM (Greg Siskind on Immigration Law and Policy)
    Here's an interesting piece from Lawrence Downes in the New York Times on the journalist's recent lunch with Lou Dobbs and his ill-fated attempt to convert the CNN "news" anchor. My favorite line:Mr. Dobbs is unencumbered by self-doubt.The true sign of an extremist.
