The Most Meme-Worthy Moments From Last Night’s Oscars
Ahhhhh memes. They are the lifeblood of the millennial generation. When it comes to perfectly captured photos paired with endless quick-witted captions, last night’s Oscars did not disappoint. Here’s a round up of the most meme-worthy moments from from the 2017 Academy Awards:
The Best Picture Plot Twist
ICYMI: a major blooper occurred in the final moments of a (very) long evening of awards. La La Land was announced as best picture, until everyone realized there was a mistake and Moonlight should have been hailed winner. In all its savage glory, the Twitterverse began dreaming up other winner mishaps.

Nicole Kidman Clapping
In perhaps the most confusing moment of the night, A-List celeb and best supporting actress nominee Nicole Kidman was caught clapping on camera. Plot twist? Kidman apparently doesn’t know how to clap.

Jackie Chan’s Pandas
Jackie Chan—who received a Lifetime Achievement Oscar from The Academy of Arts and Sciences—walked the red carpet with two plush pandas wearing silver Ugg boots. The unconventional date choice had people asking questions, to which Chan replied: “I feel a connection with them. I have already adopted two real pandas. Also I am in Kung Fu Panda!”

I aspire to be more like Jackie Chan in the respect that I want to be a successful Asian man who carries panda plushies to Hollywood events. pic.twitter.com/jeb9ye2Llh

Chrissy Teigen Sleeping
It turns out we weren’t the only ones drifting off through Casey Affleck‘s acceptance speech. We can always count on Chrissy Teigen to leave a lasting mark on awards season (cc: 2015’s ugly cry meme).
