Categorically speaking, another great Oscarific effort from Dave.
Among sploofplat authors- lately, he has risen in statue.
or is it stature?
I'd say he deserves an award because of his academic approach.
His first puzzle a few days ago- he might not have felt it- but this time he shouldn't deny the fact that we like him----
--- we really like him

Kudos to Dave.

Nicely done. I enjoyed the variety of topics in the puzzle, athough I have to admit that I used 22 letters and got 3 red screens trying to figure out the spelling variation.

Overall, though ... a pleasureable experience.

Dave, how could you do this to me ???

Headache and all I arrived home after a harrowing 3+ hours drive home from the Arles where it was snowing like it never snows in the South of France. Driver's side wiper stopped working and I had two nearly bald tires that will be replaced this week.

Kudos. Very clever and almost timely

Thanks all! The surprise, if any of you missed it, was that the contest wasn't about the Academy Awards Oscars, but about famous people named Oscar. Sorry to those who got the one about Oskar from The Tin Drum. I just couldn't help myself when I thought of the clue "Best Short Subject."

All my phrases, including Oskar, were just fine, Dave. I much prefer real spelling variations to imaginary ones.

Very funny placement of a puzzle. Nop how long were you saving this for the eve of the Oscar awards?

If I hadn't guessed Oscar Neimeyer was being described as a "draftsman" instead of as a "Brazilian," I'd have done a little better. Still, it was a clever puzzle, and I enjoyed it!

Andy, I wrote this Oscar WP quite awhile ago and asked that it be scheduled for Oscar day. I just figured that all the hoopla about the Oscars (some of it, at least on the Sploofus site, created by me!) would add to the "twist."

Lane, as you probably know since you've written a few WPs, it's never really the author's intention to insert words (e.g, Brazilian) where an alternative (draftsman) would also work. Or at least I'm not that smart! That stuff just happens. (I actually didn't even consider "draftsman.")
