The Best 2016 Oscars Memes & Jokes, So You Can Laugh With Hollywood's Biggest Night
After weeks of preparation (and some controversy), awards season comes to a close as the 2016 Oscars air on Sunday night. As always, it's been a wild ride filled with great movies, important discussions about diversity, and even a Leonardo DiCaprio-inspired Oscar video game. Naturally, the Academy Awards ceremony will be quite the show, and so it's no surprise that there are already plenty of 2016 Oscars memes and jokes. Hey, it's the Internet. Let me remind you that I'm talking about the awards show and the medium that once launched that Oscar selfie in 2014, which is still the most famous selfie of all time. So really, anything was possible on Sunday night.
The build-up to the Oscars is sometimes just as fun as the ceremony itself. This year's nominations sparked a lot of important conversations about the lack of diversity in the crop of nominees for the past two years, as well as a hilarious but poignant segment about Hollywood whitewashing from Last Week Tonight that has gone viral. On a lighter note, the lead-up to Sunday night's show at the Dolby Theater also gave viewers the gift of watching everyone in the world root for DiCaprio to win his very first Oscar, after decades of nominations. And all of this, of course, leads to plenty of great memes and jokes.
Here are some of the most hilarious ones from Oscar night:
