Our Favorite Memes and Tweets After the Oscar Best Picture Mixup

When something crazy happens on live television, we can always rely on Twitter and the internet to provide the humor that we're all looking for. Right? Naturally, last night's Oscar snafu definitely had Twitter (and many celebrities) on a roll with envelope memes, funny tweets and more.  

Here are just some of the funniest reactions.

Some compared it to the 2017 Grammy Award for Best Album. 


Others compared the best picture results to the results of the 2016 presidential election. 

Steve Harvey, of course, is known for a similar flub. Just two years ago he accidentally announced the wrong winner during the Miss Universe pageant, and he's had fun with the incident today.

He even offered to help Warren Beatty after the flubbed announcement.

This Twitter user suggested that Sixth Sense director M. Night Shyamalan had scripted the whole thing. 

Shyamalan even joined the fun on Twitter last night too.

Some suggested that Moonlight could follow the example set by Mean Girls character, Cady Heron. 

Others used old Warren Beatty movie clips to summarize what happened.


Hey Twitter (and the rest of the internet), thanks for all of the laughs last night.
