15 Oscar Reaction GIFs You’ll Need For Tonight

By: 02.24.13  •  2 Comments

I’m sorry, guys — we’ve ruined the Oscars. Not UPROXX, specifically (we’re doing our best to take away some of the Oscars importance, actually), but the Internet as a whole, which has turned the Academy Awards from a dumb, little ceremony celebrating cinema that you don’t have to think about until January to a year-round EXTRAVAGANZA of prognosticating, self-inflated significance, and momentum. I don’t know why Argo has a better chance of winning now than it did in December (or why it will beat Zero Dark Thirty), but OK.

So while the Oscars aren’t nearly as fun as they used to be, they are fun to mock on Twitter and live blogs with similar-minded, jaded movie fans. And as any good Internet commenter knows, reaction GIFs are just as important as witty retorts, so we’re here to help, with a collection “If/For” situations for tonight’s ceremony featuring GIFs from this year’s nominee. It’ll help make the Oscars slight more bearable.

That, and Jennifer Lawrence.
