    'Zero Dark Thirty' Parodies: With Lena Dunham and As A Rom-Com

    Who knows if these parodies might have helped Zero Dark Thirty in the Oscar race? (Could they have hurt more than the controversy about torture?)

    So, the Oscars are over, and you're likely waking up today with a nacho cheese hangover and still wondering why so much of the broadcast was dedicated to "Chicago" and "Dreamgirls." But if you still had any kind of energy left over from the four-hour slog, perhaps you stayed ...
