The 84th Annual Academy Awards have finally come and gone with many heaving sighs of relief that their favourites won, many seething at what they view as the injustice of their favourites not winning, and others generally sitting back and enjoying the show with a hilarious comment here and there. We bring you some of the best soundbites from Twitter:
@jessica_lake: Lady Thatcher has the following to say about Meryl Streep’s Oscar win: “dribble, dribble, potato.”
@koreykuhl: Viola Davis, you is kind. You is smart. You is important…even if you isn’t an Oscar Award Winning Actress.
@The_MA_Thomas: Octavia Spencer: goes from talking to porkchops in dinner for schmucks to winning an Oscar.
@paulscheer Wait a second Max Von Sydow and Christopher Plummer are different people! #TheOscars
@JTCP: Lesson from the Oscars: It’s possible the most sane thing about Angelina Jolie is her foreign baby stealing habit.
@MusePABlog: “I’d sit on George Clooney’s face too. Mostly to stop him making films.” #oscarrelatedovershare
@JenKirkman: It’s insensitive of Brad Pitt to have “The Rachel” haircut
@smelltheglover: Just saw a pic of Gwyneth’s gown. Did anyone ask her how hard it was to send kal-el down to earth on his own?
@Pretty_Wrong: Jesus Christ, Angelina. Are you standing like that in the hope that another baby will crawl out?
@ultraculture: Rooney Mara is wearing the robot Maria from Metropolis.
You heard them!
