...And the Oscar goes to Greek Film Dogtooth... Well...not Quite, But Thanks Anyway, Yahoo!

 We know you have probably overdosed on the Oscars by now, but  we couldn't resist the temptation...

This report  from Yahoo! had us running to the official Oscar site to make sure we hadn't got  our facts wrong, just in case... but alas, the official Oscar site simply confirmed what we already knew...   

the Oscar did NOT go to Greek Film Dogtooth!

We at Global Greek World, and surely Yorgos Lanthimos and his crew, along with all the folks at LAGFF and the rest of the Greek speaking-world, we would all have loved it  if Yahoo! was right... 

Now what happened here and this report sneaked through is anyone's guess, but nevermind! Unless we hear something different, we'll just assume that Yahoo! like all good boy scouts, were trying to be prepared for all eventualities!

Our thanks to Yahoo!- we should enjoy the taste of victory while it is still up - it will probably be withdrawn as soon as the word spreads...

(Thanks to Vera L, New Zealand, for passing it on, in response to our facebook page status this morning. Reading this anyone can be forgiven for thinking Greece had triumphed!)
