2017 Oscar Memes That Capture The Night's Most Memorable Moments

Any night as big as the Academy Awards will usually lead to a few surprising or hilarious moments that will go on to live in infamy as internet memes – which is truly the highest honor of all. These 2017 Oscar memes capture the most memorable moments of the night, starting with the celebrity arrivals on the red carpet. Every award show usually ends up having its fair share of meme-able moments (whether it's un unexpected win, an onstage slip-up, or an unforgettable fashion choice) but the Oscars are a particularly momentous occasion. It's the biggest night of the year for movies and anything can happen.

Past Academy Awards have given viewers incredibly meme-worthy moments like John Travolta inexplicably calling Idina Menzel "Adele Dazeem" in 2014 – and her returning the favor the following year by dubbing him "Glom Gazingo." Perhaps the best Oscar memes of all time focused on Leonardo DiCaprio's many nominations and zero wins. Those days are unfortunately long gone after his triumphant win in 2016, but the memes were truly iconic while they lasted. There was even a meme leading up to the 2017 that found hilarity in all the awards that don't exist, demanding #OscarsWeNeed for categories like Best Animal Performance and Outstanding Background Extra.
