Oscars 2019: How to Use the Best Reaction GIFs of the Night

There's an awards show reaction GIF for every occasion.

The Oscars are a pop culture mine that, quite literally, is filled with priceless gold, coloured jewels and $30 million diamonds. Sometimes, the evening’s viral moment is staring right at us, shining bright and ready to be shared with the world: the Ellen selfie, Chrissy Teigen sobbing, Nicole Kidman clapping like a seal. Other times, you’ve got to do a little digging to find the golden nugget that will stand the test of time. As people of the internet, it’s our job to head to the pit of the earth (Giphy.com), pick up the shovel (computer mouse) and dig (browse) for the most valuable gem (meme).

From the steamy A Star Is Born performance to an Olivia Colman double snog, here are the best GIFs from last night’s Oscars.
