The best moments, highlights, and tweets from Oscars 2018

Jimmy Kimmel returned to host the Academy Awards for the second time.


He joked about the gaffe last year where the presenters were given the wrong envelope, announcing La La Land as the Best Picture instead of Moonlight.

Jennifer Lawrence was so damn happy to tease Emma Stone who’s sitting beside her.


Jimmy Kimmel said he would give a Jet Ski to the Oscar winner with the shortest speech and nobody thought it was actually for real.


Helen Mirren even presented the prize like she was on a game show!


During a red carpet interview, people think Taraji P. Henson threw a shade at Ryan Seacrest after the recent sexual misconduct allegation about him.


Some didn’t think the same, though.


Sam Rockwell won Best Supporting Actor and dedicated it to his “old buddy” Philip Seymour Hoffman.


When Allison Janney won Best Supporting Actress for her performance in I, Tonya, she said: “I did it all by myself” and some of us can actually relate to her.


Margot Robbie who was nominated for Best Actress seemed to be more emotional for her co-actor’s win.


BB-8 came to the stage with Mark Hamill, Oscar Isaac, and Kelly Marie Tran and it was the cutest thing!


Mark Hamill tried hard not to repeat last year’s “envelopegate”.


Kobe Bryant won an Oscar for “Dear Basketball” but most people were not having it because of the issues of him allegedly sexually assaulting a 19-year-old woman in 2003.


Gael Garcia Bernal, Miguel, and Natalia Lafourcade perfomed Coco‘s “Remember Me.”




This year’s Oscars was a night of firsts with Daniela Vega being the first ever transwoman presenter.


Some people think Meryl Streep looked like the Fairy Godmother from “Shrek” and honestly, the resemblance is uncanny!


The Black Panther cast came to slay the red carpet once again.



Sufjan Stevens performed “Mystery of Love” from Call Me By Your Name and we all became emotional.


Meryl Streep kinda recreated her iconic meme.



People want Tiffany Haddish and Maya Rudolph to host the Oscars next year.


Tiffany said she want Meryl to be her mama and we’re all like, SAME.


Yup, she’s wearing THAT dress again and still killin’ it!

It’s a $4,000 Alexander McQueen dress for crying out loud!


Call Me By Your Name won Best Adapted Screenplay and James Ivory made history as the oldest Academy Award winner at 89.


He also wore a shirt with Timothee’s face on it!


Get Out took home the Best Original Screenplay award and it was such a historic and well-deserving win for Jordan Peele.


He is now the first Black writer to win an Oscars for original screenplay and one of the four Black writers to be nominated in 90 years.


He couldn’t believe it, but man, you GOOOOOD!


With Coco representing the Mexican culture, Call Me By Your Name and Get Out tackling sexuality and race respectively (and winning for it), people are saying that “this is the 2018 we like.”


After 14 nominations, legendary cinematographer Roger Deakins finally won an Oscar.


The Academy devoted a segment to the #TimesUp movement.


Coco won Best Original Song and we all wanna cry, tbh.

REMEMBER ME, though I have to say goodbye. Remember me, don’t let it make you cryyyy~


Keala Settle delivered an incredible performance of “This is Me” from The Greatest Showman and it received a standing ovation from the audience.


Some people feel like it should’ve won the Best Original Song award instead.

Okay, we both loved Coco and The Greatest Showman and we would’ve been okay with “This Is Me” as the Best Original Song, too.


Movie stars surprise moviegoers with candies!


Emma Stone was low-key shady while presenting the Best Director award.

Tell ’em, gurl!


Guillermo del Toro bagged the Best Director award and joined his “amigos” representing Mexico’s pool of talented directors.


Mexico and Latino surely won big this year!


Gal Gadot and Margot Robbie were hanging out and all we could see is Wonder Woman and Harley Quinn as friends.


Gary Oldman won Best Actor for his performance as Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour.


However, some people are condemning his win due to the abuse allegations against him.

Gary Oldman thanked his 99-year-old mother and told her to “Put the kettle on.” Was it for the tea?!


Meanwhile, films centering women got snubbed…AGAIN.

Looking at you, Lady Bird. Damn.


Jennifer Lawrence and Jodie Foster presented the Best Actress award, replacing Casey Affleck who’s also under fire for the sexual allegations against him.


And apparently, we have Meryl Streep to blame for why Jodie Foster was wearing crutches.

“She I, Tonya-ed me.”


Frances McDormand won Best Actress for her performance in “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri.”


She asked all of female nominees from every category to stand with her as she called upon Hollywood to recognize the “stories women have to tell and projects that need financed.”


She also raised the need for an “inclusion rider.”


All of the other Best Actress nominees hug after Frances’ acceptance speech.


Warren Betty and Faye Dunnaway were back to present the Best Picture award and referenced the infamous envelopegate saying, “It’s so nice seeing you again. As they say, presenting is lovelier the second time around.”


The Shape of Water snagged the Best Picture award and Guillermo del Toro had to check the envelope just to be sure.


Katniss and Haymitch, the two victors of District 12, reunited at the Oscars.

The odds weren’t in favor with Jennifer Lawrence who didn’t have any nominations this year.


Timothée Chalamet still won with this group photo with Meryl Streep and his mom.

He’s still the youngest nominee at 22 and we all know he still has a long way to go. He may not have won an award, but this bb boi won our hearts!


And bless our hearts for these two looking dashing as always.


Congratulations to all the winners!
