If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a gif must be worth at least a million (math!). With the advent of this bite-sized animated wonder, award shows have become less about who won what and more about who made what face. Here are the gifs from last night’s Oscar Awards that will be finding their way into your texts and gchats soon.

Many have tried to make sense of Lady Gaga's red carpet outfit (most have settled on kitchen cleaner). Instead of puzzling over it, Oprah just got the hell out of there.


Mere seconds into the broadcast, Neil Patrick Harris didn't waste any time saying what everyone was thinking.



NPH then roped Octavia Spencer into a bit about watching a briefcase all night long. And thus, #FreeOctavia was born.

To make up for screwing up Idina Menzel's name at last year's Oscars, John Travolta came out of obscurity to...grab and pet her face. Guess we'll be seeing him again next year, where he will try to make amends for whatever this was.

Graham Moore, winner for Best Adapted Screenplay, shared his attempted suicide story and encouraged all the cool weirdos out there to stay that way.


Fresh off an In Memoriam segment that included dearly missed greats like Robin Williams, Lauren Bacall and Gabriel Garcia Marquez, the theater couldn't keep it together for Common and John Legend's performance of and win for Selma's "Glory."


While we're thinking about Oprah, this is her receiving a Lego Oscar because she deserves it, while Stedman tries to figure out why he's sitting in Gayle's seat.


Instead of spending all her airtime thanking this agent and that publicist, Patricia Arquette got real and preached about gender inequality in this country.

Meryl Streep and J. Lo (perfect combo, by the way) were feeling it.


Eddie Redmayne cranked up his adorable dial, making it nearly impossible for Michael Keaton fans to be upset with him.



Lady Gaga performed a medley of songs from The Sound of Music for the movie's 50th anniversary and actually proved a lot of haters (myself included) wrong. Her prize: Julie Andrews' priceless approval.

Julianne Moore dodged becoming the female Leonardo DiCaprio and finally got her Oscar. She then proceeded to brag about her young, hot arm candy.





Whether you thought the show was awesome, like Miles Teller...
