Sunday night, the Academy held their 90th annual Academy Awards. There was much to talk about and plenty of comics were tweeting tonight.  There were a lot of bumping heads, and a few topics that got the most attention from the comedians in our feed.  The biggest news of the night, by far– a historic Best Original Screenplay Award for Jordan Peele for Get Out, and if you were following Twitter then you know most of the comedy world claimed it as a win for the team.  Also big love from the home team for Tiffany Haddish, and all those lobbying for her to host the whole shebang next year. As you might expect, comedians also had plenty to say about Hot Dog Cannons, Frances McDormand’s acceptance speech, Jodi Foster’s height, and lots more. What did nobody tweet about? ’s monologue, but you can watch it below.

We gathered tweets from our feed tonight, as we watched comedians watch the Oscars.  From the beginning to the end, here’s a quick look at what everyone thought.

And thanks to Judd Apatow for retweeting our tweet while you were at the Oscars. We feel like we were there.

Christopher Walken’s Pants Got a Lot of Attention

Our feed erupted with the important news that Christopher Walken had the faux pax of the night, for wearing his pants too high. Everyone else bumped heads diving for the joke about Christopher Walken having the best Christopher Walken impression. Either way, Walken’s a winner.

In Memorium, Eddie Vedder

In Memorium usually takes a lot of shit during the Oscars. But Eddie Vedder, doing Tom Petty, kept everyone happy while being sad.

Gary Oldman wins Best Actor

Jane Fonda and Helen Mirren presented Best Actor. Gary Oldman won for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in The Darkest Hour, and not everyone in our feed was thrilled. In fact its safe to say no one in our feed was thrilled. Here’s a few.

Best Actress Goes to Frances McDormand

Jodie Foster and Jennifer Lawrence presented Best Actress in a Motion Picture to winner and icon Frances McDormand.  McDormand gave a powerful speech, definitely the most memorable of the night asking all of the nominated women in the theater to stand, inviting developers everywhere to pay attention to those women, and sending half of the country to google.
