Since the dawn of time, people have reveled in sweet personal victory when their favorite films take home hardware. Mostly, though, the Oscars simply serve as an opportunity to incessantly bitch about the movies we watch every year and drop some knowledge at happy hour to prove how cultured we all are. It's not my fault that The Artist didn't resonate with you. Maybe read a book sometime.

Anyway, the folks at Grantland—as they're wont to do—have created an arbitrary list (everything's made up and the points don't matter) of the worst Oscar moments since 1972, seeded each moment into a bracket, and want you to weigh in on which was the most egregious error. Hint: it probably involves Scorsese.

Check out the bracket (even if it's just for the "James Franco sucks" jokes) and head on over to Grantland's Facebook page to vote.
