"Argo" Takes Best Picture, and Ends this Insufferably Long Award Show

I love the Oscars as much as the next person if not considerably more so; however, all of this singing is killing me.  I really like "Les Misérables" but the singing throughout the course of this show is too much.

Congratulations to "Argo" you have won everything, despite your project involving Ben Affleck.  Film Editing, Adapted Screenplay, and Best Picture.  The Academy is probably kicking itself for not nominating Affleck for Best Director; however, from "Good Will Hunting" to "Argo," Ben Affleck does not get nearly enough credit.

How likely are you to make Mic your go-to news source?
