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.

3. On pre-Oscar optimism :

5. On Jennifer Lawrence’s presence:

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.

— AP Entertainment (@APEntertainment)

7. On Jared Leto winning Best Supporting Actor:

.@JaredLeto Congratulations. And WITH RESPECT, is your mom single? I will be a #CoolDad.

— rob delaney (@robdelaney)

Quote from my #Oscar party "He looks like beauuuuuuuutiful Disney Jesus."

— Andy Mientus (@andymientus)

9. On how Gravity won almost everything:

Gravity always wins. I know this because I took a physics class in 10th grade. #Oscar

— Jeff Barrett (@BarrettAll)

Wait, why didn't Cuarón thank Sir Issac Newton? #Oscars #Oscars2014 #snubbed #gravity

— AMC Theatres (@AMCTheatres)

Shocked to see Gravity win a special effects award. Thought it was actually filmed in space

— Albert Brooks (@AlbertBrooks)

In winning Best Picture, 12 Years A Slave is... defying Gravity. #avctv

— Chris Morgan (@ChrisXMorgan)

13. On the selfie heard ‘round the world:

If only Bradley's arm was longer. Best photo ever. #oscars

— Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow)

Sorry, our bad. #Oscars

— The Academy (@TheAcademy)

POOR LIZA. It's just not her night. #Oscars2014

— Harry Clayton-Wright (@HClaytonWright)

16. On being kind of bored:

Huh. I changed wardrobe 5 times at the #SpiritAwards and people just kept eating their polenta. Oh well. #Oscars

— Patton Oswalt (@pattonoswalt)

This #Oscar telecast is so long, I just did a costume change.

— Dane Cook (@DaneCook)

Amy Adams is all of us.

— Kate Aurthur (@KateAurthur)

19. On how Oscars Pizza Boy is everyone’s new best friend:

wtf am i doing here

— Oscars Pizza Boy (@OscarsPizzaBoy)

cool photo of Macklemore enjoying a slice of pizza at the #oscars

— Matt Binder (@MattBinder)

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.

— Jensen Karp (@JensenClan88)

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

— Alison McQuade (@akmcquade)

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

— Benjamin Christensen (@Shakabrodie)

JGL and Emma Watson = Tumblr imploding with the speed of a white dwarf star #Oscars

— moviefone (@moviefone)

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.

— [adult swim] (@adultswim)

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

— Adele Dazeem (@devincf)

The weirdest #Oscars moment goes to : #JohnTravolta, for butchering #IdinaMenzel's name. Meet Adele Dazeem!

— TheWrap (@TheWrap)

29. Despite the screw-ups, a magical night was had by all.

To me, there is nothing Elsa #Frozen #Oscar
