Passion Pit frontman Michael Angelakos took to Twitter during the Oscars to criticise Silver Linings Playbook's portrayal of mental health.
Angelakos has spoken out in the past about his own struggle with bipolar disorder, and issues with mental health.
Writing on Twitter, he referred to the Oscar nominated movie as, "Cheap use of mental health as legs for plot."
He continued on, saying, "It's very much in right now -- in Hollywood, mind you -- to use mental illness as a way to bring added or almost entirely all drama to piece.
"Be it TV or film, it's lazy and usually, perhaps inadvertently, regressive. That being said, it has to exist in some capacity for discussion.
Lets allow Hollywood to dramatize so there can be backlash/discussion. See, insurance companies barely recognize mental illness as health."

Angelakos then responded, "Absolutely!" to the comment, " I suppose it's better than the media pretending it doesn't exist."
He also retweeted the comment, "Often being used as a providing authorial carte blanche, a license to write outlandish, larger-than-life characters."
The 'Carried Away' singer finished by saying, "Okay, really. The director, cast, and intention all great. Depiction of mental health questionable. That's it."
