Ever since memes became a thing,have produced some of the best ones out there. (Meryl Streep still has so many uses.) Sunday’s were no exception. From singer Billie Eilish to director Bong Joon-ho, snippets of the stars found their way onto social media and made a splash.
Presenters Maya Rudolph and Kristen Wiig broke into a little musical medley while presenting the award for best costume design, and for some reason, cameras cut to young singer Billie Eilish in the audience. The expression on Eilish’s face quickly caught viewers’ attention.
Wrote one Twitter user, “Billie Eilish’s reaction to this bit turned me into a boomer filming a Facebook rant in my car.”
Said another, “It’s OK Billie Eilish, I *also* didn’t like that bit.”
But some felt Rudolph and Wiig were hilarious. “Billie clearly never saw ‘The Sweeney Sisters’ on SNL, which is such a shame … Her loss because Maya and Kristen are everything!”
And others were quick to defend the teenage singer for just getting caught with an odd look on her face. “People better not try to cancel billie for her reaction,” wrote one Twitter user. “The internet is full of judgmental people who will misinterpret EVERYTHING!”
Martin Scorsese and Eminem
Rapper Eminem thrilled fans with his performance of “Lose Yourself,” which won the Oscar for best original song for its appearance in the 2002 film 8 Mile. But not everyone was tuned in. Cameras caught legendary director Martin Scorsese seeming to sleep during Eminem’s song.
“Cutting to Martin Scorsese during the Eminem musical number is automatically next year’s best short film winner,” said writer Eric Vespe.
Said another Twitter user, “Why is Eminem performing?? What is the connection? Is it just to give us reaction shots of Scorsese reconsidering the life choices he’s made that led him here?”
