How Twitter Basically Saved The Oscars

4 hours of awkward in 140 characters of pure sass.

From Lupita Nyong’o’s beautiful acceptance speech to Idina Menzel’s (we don’t really know what to call it) interesting introduction by John Travolta, we can always look to Twitter as a guiding light through the ridiculously long (and hilariously awkward) evening that is the Oscars.

Not sure if Jennifer Lawrence will win a second #Oscar tonight, but so far, she did trip for a second time. She still looks flawless.

I wrote down the names of all the actors & actresses at the Oscars who said no to pizza and I will never see any of their films again.

22. And how JGL and Emma Watson are everyone’s new favorite couple:

Yes, JGL and Emma Watson ARE achievements in visual effects. Gorgeous. #oscars

If JGL and Emma Watson banged on stage right now that would potentially cure cancer. #Oscars #HatsandTats

25. And finally, on how the presenters (but mostly John Travolta) JUST couldn’t read anything correctly:

Dear #Oscar Presenters, it's not improv. You have 3 sentences to learn. Work them out.

I hope Harrison Ford brings that same mix of disinterest and confusion he had at the Oscars to STAR WARS VII.
