New York Times' Oscars Style Captions Were A Delightful Comedy Surprise

This year's Oscars red carpet was pretty dismal. Many stars sported dresses that looked like they were from Forever 21 - others, like Charlize Theron, went with looks that were just uninspired. Fortunately for those of us following the sartorial desert via The New York Times, there was something else to look forward to. The photos, as usual, were stunning. But this year, the focus was on the captions. 

Thanks to Washington Post reporter Heather Kelly, we were alerted to the clever and shade-filled photo captions in the wee hours after the award ceremony. Better late than never. The rest of Twitter seems to have agreed - praise was unanimous for the "drunk intern's" breezy yet devastating commentary. Even the most obvious quip felt punchy: "Who's going to drive you home, Adam Driver?" There's also an ace joke about the big winner, Bong Joon Ho's Parasite.

Eventually, the attention made its way to the "intern" themselves. New York Times Styles editor Choire Sicha took the credit - with the disclaimer that he doesn't drink on the job. He's even changed his Twitter bio to reflect his viral work. Who knew that being a respected editor for over a decade would take a brief back seat to an assumed internship? Not us. But we can't wait for more of this gold after the next event Sicha covers.

Who's going drive home, Adam Driver? Favorito! At Governors Ball. Everyone's number one joke today is Oscar voters didn't know Parasite about them.

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.
