The Best Oscars 2017 Jokes & Memes on Social

Few nights are as big as the Academy Awards, a ceremony where Hollywood’s most talented celebrities get together to celebrate the best movies of the past year. As you can expect from such an affair, the night’s events had social media up all night chatting about a show whose dramatic, climactic twist. Our take? The Oscars 2017 show is deserving of an award itself.

Whether you caught the awards or not, you probably know what we’re talking about: when La La Land was awarded Best Picture instead of Moonlight, which was the actual winner.

And when social media smells blood, it attacks—but the commentary throughout the night was jovial and lighthearted, poking innocent fun at the mix-up. We’ve rounded up some of the funniest Oscars comments on social media, featuring some of the best responses to an unprecedented awards ceremony. Check out the best Oscars 2017 jokes and memes below!

Red Carpet

Most of us will never get to take a walk on the iconic red carpet, however, it featured a variety of relatable faces and feels for us common folk. Social media was quick to capture and identify the top Oscars 2017 meme faces:



The Mix-Up

First we had the Donald Trump executive order meme, in which users wrote their own messages on laws to be signed by the president. But thanks to the scandalous Best Picture award mix-up that everyone’s talking about, we’ve got a new write-in meme to declare victory for anyone we feel deserves it—using the card that awarded Best Picture to its rightful victor, Moonlight. Users responded with both write-in memes.



We’re pretty sure this winner-announcing card will be one of the Oscars 2017 memes to last the ages.

Following the embarrassing mix-up, some joked that Steve Harvey—who infamously awarded the Miss Universe 2015 title to the wrong contestant—was vindicated.


In fact, Harvey responded to the error himself, offering to help Warren Beatty navigate the fallout.


Bookworms rejoiced when a library gave their literary take on the mishap, featuring children’s books that referenced the movies’ titles:



But perhaps nothing tops this amazing Seinfeld remix, showing us how the La La Land cast and crew must have felt in the moment:


It’s been a long night, and it would be an understatement to call the entire show dramatic and eventful given the Best Picture screw-up. But despite the excitement, some were tuckered out as the night went on—and eagle-eyed viewers caught Chrissy Teigen sneaking in a quick nap during the big show.


And that’s a wrap! Did you catch any amazing jokes or memes during or after the awards that we missed? Let us know some of the funniest Oscars comments on social media that you can find—and if you’re in need of more awards commentary, check out our selection of the funniest Grammys social media comments!


  1. I'm guessing one of the reasons Bush didn't even threaten to nuke Afsianhgtan is that lobbing a nuclear weapon at them would have instantly made him more or less the new number one on everyones Mad Dictator List. Which would have made other countries with nuclear capability very, very nervous.

  2. Posted on I use numerology to supplement astrology…and find each provides details the other doesn’t. For example, relocation astrology might lead someone to live in Albuquerque, or even to live along a specific astrological line within the city. Numerology might suggest Bernalillo or Rio Rancho–smaller cities so close that some astrological methods don’t distinguish them. Or astrology could help choose one house over another.

  3. The crux of your writing whilst appearing agreeable in the beginning, did not settle perfectly with me personally after some time. Somewhere throughout the paragraphs you were able to make me a believer unfortunately just for a short while. I nevertheless have a problem with your jumps in logic and you would do well to help fill in those gaps. In the event that you actually can accomplish that, I could definitely be amazed.

  6. Republican favorite Joe Walsh of Illinois. Republican congressman Walsh never states how, or gives examples of how Dodd—Frank has hurt or hindered anyone. It gets back to Republican style rhetoric, if you scream it loud enough and you scream it enough times over and over, “the sky is red, the sky is red, the sky is red” it becomes God’s given truth to your illiterate constituents. Unfortunately for Joe, the people in this bar do not equate volume with fact.

  7.

  9. marcelo, to najlepiej odpal sobie jakiegoś dowolnego LiveCD i postępuj wg. tego co napisano w artykule:W środowisku Linux: 1. Skopiować na nośnik USB całą zawartość płyty. Zakładam tutaj, że posiadamy sformatowany i zamontowany uprzednio nośnik (najlepiej użyć systemu plików z rodziny FAT, np. FAT32). 2. Z owego nośnika uruchomić skrypt znajdujący się w katalogu boot. Czyli, na przykład, jeśli nasza pamięć USB zamontowana jest w /mnt/usb: # cd /mnt/usb/boot # ./ 3. Gotowe. Mamy przygotowany nośnik.

  10. Ех, скільки ще наївних романтиків в Україні… І хто сказав, що люди їдуть туди на все готове? Хто для них там щось приготував? Люди їдуть працювати, бо тут їхній труд ніхто не цінує.

  11. A lot of the excuses you posted come out of my mouth way too often. Running doesn’t come easy to me either, but it feels soo good to finish a run. It is a total accomplishment.

  12. If all of this still doesn't make sense, log in your character and ask in Trade why everything is a) broken b) so expensive and c) that this expansion sucks. This won't fix anything, but it is likely to make you feel better, albeit briefly…–^What I will do :PJust kidding!Great post, now I can relax for another month and perhaps level a scribe.. But which character would be suitable for that? Gah this actually requires thinking 🙁

  13. Disculpen: soy una seguidora de todo lo natural y por ende UNA CONSTANTE SEGUIDORA DE LA BIO GUIA, Me intereso el comentario de Juan, sobre los terminos de expresion que usan algunas personas; no Juan, NO SOMOS DE AFRICA, EN AFRICA NO SE HABLA EL CASTELLANO, PERO AQUI EN ARGENTINA SI, Y LO HABLAMOS EN FORMA ESPECIAL, DE ESA MANERA, debido a la inyeccion tan extraordinaria de extranjero que Argentina ha aceptado a lo largo de toda su historia .Saludos.

  14. 14316Sepcf27Michael 55cEchoing the sentiment of many others who have been voted into the negatives above me–this makes me very, very sad. Both for you, and for any gay Christians who may be reading your post (and all the affirming responses to it), and thus reinforcing the idea that the only “good” response to their homosexuality is to deny this part of themselves, and never experience a loving, intimate relationship.VA:F [1.9.20_1166](from 30 votes) 15b

  15. "Määrä jonka Noora luetteli ostaneensa uutena tänä syksynä oli ainakin minun korvaani todella suuri määrä tavaraa. Ja valitettavasti tuo tavaramäärä ei edusta minulle eettistä kuluttamista. Mutta kai kaikki on sitten niin suhteellista ja kiinni varallisuudesta."Sama mieltä anon kanssa. Tuo määrä vaatteita tulee itsellä ostettua suurin piirtein viiden vuoden sisällä. Samoin Nooran kuvaama putelimäärä vaikutti tosi runsaalta. Ehkä Noora edustaa meille mallia, joka on keskivertokulutuksesta eettisempään suuntaan ja luomumpaan suuntaan.

  16. “(if so, everything happens in awareness: awareness awaring itself)”Indeed!“(it is/would be like a game – hide and seek)”Exactly! There’s an echo coming up that mentions “Snakes and Ladders” – do you know that game?Gratitude and grins~ ml

  18. Merci à tous pour vos commentaires, Je veux croire qu’il ne fait pas juste pour participer au tirage Et comme je vois qu’il ya un pouvoir en faveur de la littérature, les prochains épisodes vont revenir avec de belles fictions.

  19. Ever since an in-depth, direct encounter with art made along the border between France and Germany during the early part of the Reformation, I’ve been particularly fascinated by the way painting at that time bifurcated between traditionally oriented work (Durer, etc) and the new, Protestant (Lutheran) ideology (Cranach, etc). So in short, art contemporary with Martin Luther really interests me. If Whitney Tassie is an expert in contemporary art and will present this kind of thing here, so I don’t have to go to Europe to see more, I will be very excited.

  20. في الوطن العربي تعيش كذلك حيوانات لا تتواجد في مناطق غيره ومنها اسماك تنتشر هنا وهناك بحرية ونهرية وهي كالآتي:

  23. Given that my cheepo GPS shows me the speed limit and speed is the largest factor in crash injuries, I’m hoping that these electronic systems will simply limit the speed of motor vehicles to the area speed limit. It would be a huge safety boon….much larger than allowing occupants to use mobile devices.

  24. Dobrý den Lenko,je mi líto, ale problém který popisujete je způsoben chybou destilatéra. Nadmíra předkapu způsobuje to, co popisujete. I to, že před zředěním nebyl problém patrný, ukazuje na špatnou destilaci.Připouštím, že kvas mohl být špatný a udělat dobrou destilaci je pak dost velký problém, ale s tím se zkušený destilatér musí umět poprat.Řešený je jen jediné a to třetí destilace.Mnoho zdaru.

  26. Don’t feel too bad. The Hill End booth has the reputation of the most left wing booth in Australia – and you beat it by 6 votes.If there is a voice to be heard in all of this it is the 159 people at Kowanyama who voted S.A. I hope the left can hear this as clearly as it does the street chants.

  29. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% positive. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers

  30. Zbignev, I too have lived in Europe and if I recall all that was in the print and TV media was ‘news’ about celebrities and reality tv! Maybe you should put your ‘money where your mouth is’ and submit a piece to IA for publication. But please at least get the name correct – it is IA – Independent Australia – not AI as you have referred to it as several times in your comment.

  31. Nate,I enjoy humor as much as anyone…when its really funny. You can ask anyone about me. I love humor. I love to laugh. I did get a little chuckle out of the Dude rapping a motion…but, I was not laughing with him, if you know what I mean.David

  32. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same results.

  34. xxxxxxosv:Varför är det pinsamt att visa sin nakna kropp? Hur gör man bort sig med en nakenbild? Att visa att man inte kan uttrycka sig, argumentera, förstå vad man läser och skriva så folk fattar är i min värld att visa sig betydligt naknare och dessutom pinsammare än vilken bild som hellst.

  35. It is different because people on both sides want it to be different. Unbelievers don’t want to be preached to and believers want something of their own. That isn’t followed strictly, of course, but it is why the “Christian” genre exists. Darkness and Light cannot exist in the same space.

  36. I know… bit ashamed, but then… I really couldn’t see us walk all the way back home. And Japanese food isn’t that filling (even after 12 courses…) so I guess walking to the bus station was sort of fine! Should try and watch my waistline though hehehe!

  37. Veel stevia producten hebben een bijsmaak, voornamelijk door de bijproducten zoals alcohol, grapefruitextract en maltodextrine en andere stoffen.Probeer de stevia in mijn webshop eens Die wordt over het algemeen als goed gewaardeerd zonder bijsmaak.

  38. Che i piemnotesi abbian fatto male a fare l'Italia è per me, che son piemontese, un fatto storico incontestabile.Ma parlare dei piemontesi come dei mostri e dei meridionali come di povera gente vessata è tipico del meridionalismo piagnone e del revisionismo a tutti i costi, che non ha nulla a che vedere con la ricerca di prove e documenti o nuove interpretazioni.I miei avi han fatto l'Italia, col sangue e sul campo di battaglia. Io avrei preferito che morissero per una causa migliore. Ma ormai è così facile accusare i piemontesi…
