Not one American acting Oscar?

One of my guilty pleasures is enjoying the Oscars.  I wouldn't agree with 99% of the artists on display there, but as a pretty typical movie buff, I always get a kick out of the annual love-fest in Hollywood.

This year, not one single American actor won any of the acting awards.  I might be overreaching here, but does it make sense that there wasn't a single American actor in 2007 worthy of an Academy Award?

We frequently talk about our vanishing culture.   The English language, the customs, the American traditions, all slowly evaporating.

It seems to me that realizing that every single acting award at the Oscars went to foreign actors is a pretty compelling sign of the times...
