Remember when watching the Oscars was just that -- watching the ceremony without any distractions, except for playing drinking games and tracking your Oscars pool? Man, did that ever suck.
Thank god Twitter came along and changed things forever. These days, the real show is online, where everybody hates everything and has a funny way to tell you why. As Billy Crystal laughed at all his un-funny jokes and the awards themselves went off without any suspense, our snarky Twitter feed is the only thing that kept us awake through last night's sad, awkward ceremony.
And there were a few gems that were just too good to keep to ourselves. Here are our favorite 140-character punchlines from this year's Oscars.
