Oscar Tweets! We cracked jokes for the 2nd half of the Oscars. And they’re all below. Eat it up:

Fun fact: The Oscar was patterned after ancient statues and was first called The Oscar-Hotep. Fun fact

In chronological order from Best score onward…

Ok, in the first WTF moment of the Oscars: best score as interpreted by dance. Right now the cinematographers are going “you didn’t even show clips of our work (you know…the VISUAL part of a film?) so you’d have enough time for this crap?!”

Whenever a special effects guy says the company name WETA (wet-ah) I have to giggle. Heh, he said wet-ah. Heh.

Funny #Oscars commercial sign-off: “Will best director be a woman? The first black man? Orrr…..another white guy.”

I was just about over my suicidal tendencies until I saw the best documentary nominees. FTW

Avatar wins best cinematographer. Isn’t every Avatar award really for James Cameron & oh, people he hired because the unions said he had to?

Jeff Bridges wins Best Actor. Personally I thought Jeff Bridges was better in King Kong. Robbed that year.

Does Jeff Bridges beard and mustache on #Oscars remind you of snowman Burl Ives? Twins!

Michael Sheen on stage calling Helen Mirren sexy. I get it. But ka-reeeeepyyy.

Oprah one of presenters for Best Actress. Oprah: “James Cameron, congrats on Avatar’s billion dollar box office grosses. By the way, I make that in a month.”

When they show the cast of “Precious” at the Oscars I don’t see Golem. Rrrrracist!

Sandra Bullock best actress Oscar: Sandra to the world: “you shit on me for ‘All About Steve’. But now, you can suck it.”

Kathryn Bigelow best director for Hurt Locker. Personally I think Kathryn Bigelow did a better job in “Point Break”. Robbed that year.

Hurt Locker best picture. Oh say it, Kathryn! Say it! “I’m the queen of the world!”

Ebert’s a funny guy. RT @ebertchicago Guys half drunk, watching at home: “That Kathryn Bigelow is a fine woman.”

The POT is following 300 twitter people and Ebert is the funniest one? We gotta follow funnier people.

Ok, POT founders off to crash 7 diffrent Oscar parties with a few Brazilian swimsuit models. 3 parties of which we’re actually invited to.

…Actually the models were invited. We just supply them coke, which gives you special privileges.
