Green Book's Controversial Oscar Win Is Getting The Royal Meme Treatment

It's Tuesday after the Academy Awards and people are still buzzing about Green Book's controversial Oscar win. Prior to receiving the gold statue, its writer apologized for anti-Muslim sentiment, Viggo Mortensen idiotically used the N-word, and we were (rightfully) reminded of Peter Farrelly's sexual misconduct. The director seems to have a habit of showing people his dick.

The film is considered the "whitest" black film at the Awards ceremony, and many people are wondering why a movie that's basically about a white man (The incredible Dr. Don Shirley's driver) is being lauded as such a black success story. Especially when considering the wealth of black-made films that were up for awards. The shallowness of this choice is even more painful when you realize it was up against If Beale Street Could Talk, a film based on James Baldwin's novel of the same name. He is a legendary painter of the black experience. 

While opponents made their opinions known on all channels, the sass was loudest on Twitter, where people have funneled their disgust and skepticism into memes. The most successful have been comparing the film to the kind of white friend that loudly proclaims their allyship in a misguided and somewhat shallow way. The memes may not change the brains of the Academy, but they'll definitely make sure that people know where we're at.

Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper's Horny Oscars Performance Was A Meme Goldmine

While the the 2019 Oscars were exceedingly memeable, the most meme-worthy award definitely goes to Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper. Their performance of A Star Is Born's "Shallow" was almost uncomfortably intimate, and proceeded to spawn a wealth of suspicious and tea-loving tweets about the duo's sexual tension. Memes quickly followed, ranging from sexual in nature to celebrations of our banal Oscarless lives. While these are some of the funniest memes we could find, we're willing to bet that Gaga and Cooper will be gracing Reddit, Twitter, and Instagram for the entire week. We're not complaining.

Honest Movie Posters Are Back In Time For Oscars Season

2018 was a damn good year for movies. There was The Favourite, zany fish-eyed English Baroque rollercoaster from Yorgos Lanthimos. Roma, a poignant love letter to Mexico City, managed to steal hearts internationally. Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper inexplicably paired up for what ended up being our favorite iteration of A Star Is Born yet. Despite our immense love for these acclaimed films, we also enjoy making fun of sh*t. And The Shiznit happens to do that very well.

Every year the entertainment site posts "honest posters" for Oscar nominees. They're beautifully done and funny to boot. We've included some of this year's posters and some all-time favorites. If you like what you see, check out the rest here and consider donating to their Patreon.

Funny honest movie posters.

Another Oscars, Another Disappointment for Leonardo DiCaprio

"...Keep it together, Leo. Breathe. Breathe deeply. You're only 39. Acting is a lifelong gig. If I don't win an actual Oscar, maybe they'll give me a Lifetime Achievement Award. GAAAH, that's not helping!"
