17 Best Memes From the 2017 Oscars (Photos)

The big story of the night was the erroneous announcement of ”La La Land“ as Best Picture instead of ”Moonlight“ — but ”Gary from Chicago“ also sparked plenty of jokes

The 89th Academy Awards inspired some glorious memes on Twitter and Instagram Sunday night, with the mixup with the announcement of the Best Picture winner taking precedent over everything else.

Mahershala Ali won the Best Supporting Actor award for his role in “Moonlight,” which sparked A24 to tweet out a screenshot from the movie in which Ali originally cradles young Chiron in the movie. However, in the meme, he is cradling his newly-won Oscar.

Of course, people were quick to make fun of the moment when host Jimmy Kimmel interviewed “Lion” star Sunny Pawar and proceeded to hold him up like the scene in “The Lion King.”

And people also loved Kimmel’s prank when he invited tourists on a Star Lines Hollywood tour into the auditorium. “Gary from Chicago” was quick to trend on Twitter, and his fiancee’s facial expressions prompted many to take to social media.

The 2017 Oscars took place at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on Sunday, Feb. 26.
