Palindromist Barry Duncan has sent us an Oscar palindrome with the following note:

“I saw the film ‘Argo’ in November and wrote the attached palindrome. Though I briefly considered writing a palindrome about each of the “Best Picture” nominees, I never got around to it. But now it looks like I picked the right film to celebrate backward and forward.”

CIA: Some remade tale retraces op, era. We – Ben A’s Tony
M, hot six – exit. Won’t Canadian aid an act now? Tix exist.
Oh my, not sane! Beware, pose, Carter elated: a mere
mosaic.

“Argo” won the Oscar for Best Picture at the 85th Academy Awards on Sunday, Feb. 24.
