If you’re anything like us, you’re still reeling from last night’s Oscars. The Academy Awards went off without a hitch–that is, right up until the very end when something so epically awkward happened, we can’t stop reliving it in our heads. The show went on incredibly late so if you managed to miss La La Land accidentally being awarded Best Picture and then finding out that Moonlight actually won, here’s how it went down:

Cringe. Cringe. CRINGE.
Naturally, the internet (especially Twitter) went into overdrive and didn’t let this moment go to waste:
We’re sure Smithers is about to take the blame

Jordan: We didn’t win. There is a mistake. Moonlight won.
Everyone: OH MY GOD WHAT
