Oscar Predictions: Paint

Owen Wilson’s character in Paint might be named Carl Nargle, but he’s obviously based on the late coater of happy little trees PBS host Bob Ross. The comedy is written and directed by Brit McAdams and debuts in limited release this Friday. Costars include Michaela Watkins, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Ciara Renée, and Stephen Root.
