Awkward Oscars Debacle Means Hilarious Memes

Shelby Chau / February 27, 2017

So, about last night…


Last night’s Academy Awards was going really smoothly, and it was a wonderful night with great moments. Emma Stone and Casey Affleck won their first ever Oscar. We had Justin Timberlake’s entertaining performance. We saw Chrissy Teigen fall asleep.



We had Nicole Kidman show us a creepy way of clapping.



But the night really hit its peak, when they announced the winner for Best Picture, and everyone went crazy.


In a bizarre plot twist, the wrong winner was announced by presenters, Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway. The cast and crew of La La Land was announced as the winner, and in the middle of their acceptance speech, before being cut off, they were asked to hand over their award to the actual winners, the cast and crew of the movie Moonlight.

It was a super awkward moment, and one that makes the history books, but of course, it was explained after, and everyone apologized about the mishap, but again, no one is ever safe from the internet.


Hilarious memes and other funny references ensued.


We’ve compiled some of the funniest and best things around the internet about last night’s debacle.




The perfect plot twist. (cr: @pictoline) @9gag @9gagmobile #9gag #lalaland #oscars
