As you may have heard, the 2013 Oscars were last night. It’s the night that Hollywood gets together to celebrate the best and the brightest of the blockbuster movie set. (The list of winners from the 85th Annual Academy Awards are right here.) While we’re more Independent Spirit Award types (you can’t argue with an awards show that finally gives Matthew McConaughey his due), we can’t resist following all the Academy Awards action on Twitter, which is the perfect nexus of all our interests: comedy, movies and laughing. Whether wits are responding to stumbles, gaffes, host Seth MacFarlane’s antics or are actually excited about an award winner, Twitter never stops being some of the best free entertainment around.
Here are some of our favorite tweets from last night’s Academy Awards:
Finally. Old white dudes getting recognized. #oscars

When I attend the Oscars I’m on the edge of my seat. Not because I’m nominated-I just don’t want to catch anything from some starlet.

The ultimate #Oscars Drinking Game starts with a box of white wine and ends with sobbing along to Anne Hathaway’s acceptance speech.
