Last night I asked on Twitter whether anyone was working on the essay about the theological significance of the red carpet coverage of the Academy Award for today’s Cafe. As of this afternoon, no one, to my knowledge, has come forward. So consider this an open thread on the faith and values angles of last night’s Oscars telecast and the attendant media scrum. I’d like to kick us off with an arresting observation or probing question–something about The Tree of Life, or Moneyball and the Church of Baseball, but I’ve got nothing. Did faith rear its head?
