Posted at 27th-Feb-2017 in Uncategorized | Leave a reply

Dust the popcorn off your couch, fire up your Twitter engines, and get ready to throw some likes at the best live tweets from last night’s 89th Academy Awards ceremony – because Hollywood’s biggest night came packed with incredible outfits, instantly GIF-able moments, and a bizarre envelope-switcharoo that threw the audience and the Twitter-verse for a loop. Yes, I’m talking about the moment when the cast and crew of La La Land realized mid-acceptance speech that there had been a horrible mistake of Steve Harvey-proportions, and Moonlight had in fact won the award for Best Picture.
