The Funniest Twitter Reactions To The 2017 Oscars

The 2017 Oscars just wrapped up (full winners list here). Were you watching every moment, perhaps getting insanely blitzed thanks to a drinking game?

And when Denzel didn’t win, some people were not here for that:

And John Legend’s excellent La La Land medley didn’t go unnoticed:
