Editor’s Note: As this is the final post of LAMB Devours The Oscars 2014, I would like to thank everyone who contributed a piece to this year’s feature- we couldn’t have done it without you! I would also like to thank everyone who has visited the feature and read any of the pieces during the past month or so. I have been Lucien of BuzzHub, and this has been LAMB Devours The Oscars.
