Is that not a tautology rather than an oxymoron?

Awfully nice

Awfully good

This uses the archaic meaning of the word 'awful', meaning someone or something which inspires awe.
 

Night vision

Why is this an oxymoron - can you not see by moonlight, or at night under a street light?

One fine day in the middle of the night,

Two dead men got up to fight,

Back to back they faced each other,

Drew their swords and shot each other,


One was blind and the other couldn't, see

So they chose a dummy for a referee.

A blind man went to see fair play,

A dumb man went to shout "hooray!"


A paralysed donkey passing by,

Kicked the blind man in the eye,

Knocked him through a nine inch wall,

Into a dry ditch and drowned them all,


A deaf policeman heard the noise,

And came to arrest the two dead boys,

If you don't believe this story’s true,

Ask the blind man he saw it too!
