Since memes became a thing,They have produced some of the best there are. (Meryl Streep It still has so many uses.) Sunday They were no exception. From singer Billie Eilish to director Bong Joon-ho, fragments of the stars came to social networks and caused a sensation.
The presenters Maya Rudolph and Kristen Wiig broke into a small musical mix by presenting the award for best costume design and, for some reason, the cameras cut the young singer Billie Eilish in the audience. The expression on Eilish's face quickly caught the attention of the spectators.
A Twitter user wrote: "Billie Eilish's reaction to this part made me a boom who was filming a Facebook complaint in my car."
Another said: "Okay, Billie Eilish, * I * didn't like that part either."
People soon found other ways to incorporate Eilish's expression into their own lives.
But some felt that Rudolph and Wiig were fun. "Billie clearly never saw The Sweeney Sisters on SNL, which is a shame … Her loss because Maya and Kristen are everything!"
And others rushed to defend the teenage singer for being caught with a strange look on her face. "It's better that people don't try to cancel Billie because of her reaction," wrote a Twitter user. "The Internet is full of critical people who will misunderstand EVERYTHING!"
Martin Scorsese and Eminem
Rapper Eminem thrilled fans with his performance of "Lose Yourself," which won the Oscar for best original song for his appearance in the 2002 film 8 Mile. But not everyone was tuned. The cameras captured the legendary director Martin Scorsese who seemed to sleep during Eminem's song.
"Cutting Martin Scorsese during Eminem's musical number is automatically the best winner of short films next year," said writer Eric Vespe.
Another Twitter user said: "Why is Eminem acting? What is the connection? Is it just to give us photos of Scorsese's reaction reconsidering the life choices he has made that led him here?
Another moment of the Oscar came earlier in the evening when director Bong Joon-ho won the award for best original screenplay for his movie Parasite. The cameras captured the director looking at his prize with pure delight, and fans loved it.
"Bong Joon-ho admiring his Oscar is a vibe," wrote a Twitter user.
Another said: "I want someone to look at me as Bong Joon-ho looks at his Oscar."
Oscar costumes, but generally, it is an exotic dress or two that attract attention. (And Natalie Portman made headlines.)
But also on Sunday, Timothée Chalamet grew big because of his bright blue coat and pants that some thought made him look like he had just left work at a car shop or service station. "Congratulations to Timothée Chalamet for his promotion to a service station manager," The Ringer's Twitter account growled.
Julia Butters and her turkey sandwich
Even before the awards began, the young actress Julia Butters, who appeared in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, won her breath for being prepared. Butters showed the photographers that he came with a turkey sandwich in his bright pink bag. The LA Times reported that Butters brought a snack because "I don't like some of the food here."
Many Twitter users encouraged her, including meat maker Oscar Mayer, whose official Twitter account wrote "you have to do what you have to do."
