"La La Land" getting snatchedt has birthed one of our favourite memes of 2017.
Unless you slept through it, you should know by now that the ending of last night's Academy Awards was wild.

An envelope-based mix-up resulted in La La Land being wrongly announced as winner for Best Picture - instead of the real winner, Moonlight.
Rightfully so, the internet completely lost its sh*t and the memes have been flowing ever since.

But the most important part was when La La Land producer Jordan Horowitz held up the card with the real winner on it.
And reminded us all exactly what happens when anyone holds up a piece of paper on the internet.

But even though he won Meme Of The Night, we do have to give shouts to Horowitz for handling the whole goof-up as classy as anybody possibly could.
Thank you, Barry. Congratulations and much love. https://t.co/BSwk9T6Si4— Jordan Horowitz (@jehorowitz) February 27, 2017
Congrats everybody, and thanks for feeding the meme machine once again.
