When a film director directs a film with the intention of winning an Oscar rather than making a good film.
I saw Wolf of Wall Street last weekend, and Martin Scorsese has a case of Oscaritis. The performances are painfully Oscary, and the flashy, unoriginal technique (a rip off of Scorsese's Good Fellas) was like being hit over the head with an Oscar. Definite case of advanced Oscaritis.
