How Twitter Basically Saved The Oscars

4 hours of awkward in 140 characters of pure sass.

Posted on

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.

On pre-Oscar optimism :

Good news is if @LeoDiCaprio sees his #oscar we only have 2 more weeks of winter! #Oscars2014

On Jennifer Lawrence's presence:

Jennifer Lawrence was born in 1990 and has been nominated for an #Oscar 3 times already. I still live in my basement. #keepingitreal

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.

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

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.
