With all the craze about the Oscars, people start speculating about the show much in advance on the Internet every year. Right from the best and worst appearances on the red carpet to the after-party madness and the iconic moments during the awards night, everything is out on social media. And once it is telecasted on television, the live tweets, snide remarks, cool trivia, sarcastic puns and hilarious memes that follow are almost inevitable.
Something similar happened when the stars arrived at the Dolby Theatre on Sunday (March 4) night. The ever-vigilant Twitterati got to their business and started sharing pictures and posts on the networking website. Much before people knew about it, social media was flooded with memes and GIFs as soon as the 2018 Academy Awards began. In case you missed the live action, we have selected some of the best tweets that perfectly sum up the starry night.
For starters, steal a glance are some of the best and whackiest moments from the red carpet. From Jennifer Lawrence sliding on the red carpet to Tiffany Haddish climbing the rails to meet Meryl Streep, Tweeple can’t stop laughing about these moments before the show started.

People couldn’t stop talking about the stage and the amazing set design with huge crystals. Of course, then there was Jimmy Kimmel and his jet ski for giving the shortest speech ever!

Tiffany Haddish stole the show wearing the same outfit — not once but thrice — and to top it up, she swapped heels for comfy slippers on stage. And, as women on Twitter couldn’t agree more, the “heel struggle” was the “real struggle”.
Tiffany Haddish in slippers and a gown, carrying her heels is me at every formal event I’ve ever had to go to #Oscars

And this is why Tiffany Haddish is me. If I pay 4K for a dress, I’m wearing it at my wedding, three awards shows and you gotta bury me in it. https://t.co/mpqXqhYTNN

Jennifer Lawrence and Jodie Foster’s height difference caught many eyeballs.
Wait is Jodie Foster 4 feet tall or is Jennifer Lawrence 11 feet tall

Wait a damn second. Is Jennifer Lawrence huge or is Jodie Foster tiny? Is it a camera trick? Are they Gandalfing Jennifer Lawrence?!
