OW Oscarama, 2012 — I want a refund because you messed up the sound and color on that one movie: Best Film

The Artist will win this award tomorrow night. Some people will be happy, some people will be livid. Most people will shrug because they haven’t seen it. I will probably shrug even though I have seen it. I liked it as a film. It was fun and whimsical and, most importantly for a gimmick film,...
