It’s only fitting that an Oscars hosted by notorious prank boy Jimmy Kimmel would end on what certainly felt like one of the biggest “pranks” in Hollywood history (if you don’t count the time Humphrey Bogart tricked Cary Grant into eating a pack of cigarettes). If you haven’t already heard because you rely solely on this blog for ALL your news, La La Land was mistakenly given the Academy Award for Best Picture thanks to an envelope mix-up, forcing the show to interrupt the film’s producer’s speeches to announce that Moonlight had actually won.
 
The big, literally show stopping finale overshadowed an otherwise entertaining Oscars ceremony thanks to a diverse, well-deserving crop of winners,
a terrifying Avatar commercial, and excellent hostage by Kimmel. Since it’s in our best interest to get you to watch Jimmy Kimmel Live! weeknights on Comedy, here’s a selection of Jimmy’s best moments from the big show:
 


 
An Oscar monologue is a chance for the host to get in some light burns before Hollywood’s finest start spewing smugness about how film is the most powerful force in the universe. Kimmel roasted huge names like Mel Gibson and Matt Damon, while also singling out highly overrated and perpetually nominated actress Meryl Streep.
 


 
If not for the envelope mix-up, most people in your office would probably be talking “that tour bus thing” right now, starring a newly-minted meme machine named Gary. Kimmel surprised a Hollywood tour bus full of normal people by leading them directly into the Kodak Theatre in the middle of the show and giving them a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be gawked at by the rich and famous.

 


 
Jimmy brought his famous Mean Tweets segment to the proceedings, this time featuring Hollywood heavyweights Natalie Portman, Ryan Gosling, Samuel L. Jackson, Jessica Chastain, Felicity Jones, Eddie Redmayne, Whoopi Goldberg, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Casey Affleck, Emma Stone, Miles Teller, Tilda Swinton, Jeff Bridges and Robert De Niro. Start tweeting terrible things at those you think might win in 2018 to maybe become part of next year's show!
 

 
 
Kimmel couldn’t help but ratchet up his longstanding feud with Great Wall star Matt Damon. But in between the insults came this touching tribute to one of Damon’s most legendary films.
