Here Are the BEST Twitter Reactions to #OscarGate

Movie lovers around the world are still cringing hard over last night’s epic Oscars mistake, which has now been aptly deemed both #OscarFail and #OscarGate on social media. While we’ve been investigating the reason behind the massive flub, the internet is still just trying to cope: Social media research firm Fizzology let us in on the fact that the mix-up sparked nearly 400K mentions during the broadcast, with volume spiking a whopping 85 percent in the last hour of the broadcast due to the mind-blowing mistake.

Let’s have a look at some of the best Twitter reactions, shall we?

Most are still just trying to get past the shock…

…including such stars as Matt Damon, Michelle Williams, Busy Phillips, and Dwayne Johnson (our personal favorite).

And others are having a good laugh…

Some are looking for the bright side…

While suspicious viewers think it was all an elaborate Russian conspiracy…

Some feel like *certain* folks might have been in the know…

And some were wishing that this had happened in a different moment in recent history…

But honestly, it was Steve Harvey (who, of course, survived a strikingly similar cringe-worthy sitch) and the Miss America Organization that may have had the BEST reactions of all.

How did you react to the #OscarFail? Let us know @BritandCo!
