It is every citizen's right to dash off a silly letter to a newspaper from time to time, and I suppose The Times feels obligated to print a certain percentage of the silly letters that rattle into its mail slot. David R. Moss' hip-shot characterization of the film academy as racist because it failed to nominate Ang Lee as best director (Calendar, Feb. 24) is a classic of the genre. To be precise about it, "the academy" didn't omit Lee, the academy selected his film as one of the five best films made anywhere in the world last year.

I was quite astonished to find that Bette Davis' name was omitted from Jack Mathews' list of potential Oscar nominees in the Best Actress category for 1987 ("Thinking, Talking, Breathing Oscar," Dec. 27). Does he honestly believe that Cher, Christine Lahti, Holly Hunter, Sally Kirkland or Faye Dunaway give better performances in their films than Davis delivers in "The Whales of August"?
