#Envelopegate

Hilarious memes and tweets in response to last night’s epic Oscar flub

On the off chance that you haven’t yet heard the news, last night’s Oscars ceremony was a combination of super boring, super awkward, and super amazing. Just as the evening was wrapping up, Warren Beaty and Faye Dunaway awarded La La Land Best Picture at the 89th Academy Awards. As the producers were giving their acceptance speech, however, it was revealed that the envelopes had been switched and–oops!–actually Moonlight was the real victor. Naturally, the crowd (and the Internet) went wild. Let’s take a look…

First, there were the shocked expressions of everyone in the room…

Then came the tweets…

And then, naturally, came the memes…

But…but…but…but wait it gets worse. Assuming this photo isn't doctored….we can't blame Beatty or Dunaway if that is indeed the envelope they were given. Were there TWO ENVELOPES onstage? I saw Beatty give Dunaway the envelope to read, the "thank yous" happened, then the confusion, then Warren has red envelope in hand that has the proper #Moonlight credits in. Does this mean #Pricewaterhouse accidentally printed a dupe of best actresses envelopes? Because when Stone won she said she kept her envelope saying that she won and there wasn't a second envelope saying she won. I also wonder if Dre/Em/Busta/Janet/Diddy/RKelly will contest the 99 Grammy Little train that could upset win of all wins now, cause I still refuse to believe we won that war. I need a bottle of #Ovaltine to get the decoder clues or Scooby & em to solve this mystery.

Petty.? I'm glad #Moonlight won because Ryan's hand on the #LALALand poster is reason enough as to why it should've lost!
