Not only are we actually at the Oscars this year, but our staff recluse Tariq Herzallah will also be live-blogging the event from the comfort of his own cave home. Join us as we update this post with GIFs of interesting events and amazing speeches all night long.

We’re excited to bring to you live GIF coverage of the Oscars, skipping out the dull speeches and horrible dresses but bringing you the funny moments, the musical numbers, and of course Seth MacFarlane in all his glory. If you’re unable to watch the Oscars but want to keep updated on the gossip-worthy moments, then you’ve come to the right place! Keep refreshing as the night continues, and let us know what your favorite moments are in the comments below. From Kirk asking why Tina and Amy can’t just host everything, to Jennifer Lawrence approving her inclusion of the boob song, to her falling flat on the stairs as she went to accept her award for Best Actress – we have them all covered.

Disclaimer 1: This will not cover everything, just the things worth seeing in GIFs. For total and complete coverage check out our live blog linked above or the Winner’s List currently being updated.

Disclaimer 2: These are GIFs found on Tumblr. The sources are linked through the pictures.

Let the recap begin!

  • HanLin

    This was the best idea ever, and I think I love you.

  • Sam

    THANK-YOU!! I can’t watch tonight so this is great!

  • Ellen

    So I saw the Jennifer Lawrence gif. Yup, I’m good for the night.

    • Gary65

      COME BACK!!! She just won. Her speech & GIFness will be gold :D

      • Ellen

        You know, I’m glad I stuck around. Btw, when she fell, there’s a moment when she looked like she was just gonna give up on getting up again and get some sleep on those stairs. Did I imagine that?

        • Gary65

          LOL no you did not imagine that. I think she was so shocked, that she won, that she forgot to lift her dress as she went up the stairs. Once she fell, I think she took a moment to curse herself. She may have also been trying to figure out how to stand up again. I’m not a woman so I have no experience in the matter but that looked like a big ass dress. I’m not exactly sure how you would be able to get to your feet again, as you can’t bend your knees.

          • http://forgiveyourmind.tumblr.com/ Tariq

            …dresses don’t restrain your knees from bending. Let’s just leave the dress talk to the women before we make men looks like fools. :P

          • Gary65

            No I mean that she’s wearing this big pouffey dress and, for a moment, it looks like she can’t get up or something. I’m just trying to visualize the physics of it. Surely, by bending her knees, her feet will still be within the folds of dress. Thus, by attempting to stand up, she will be standing on the dress, which will prevent her from rising. As she’s on a stairs, there’s no way to re-establish contact with the ground and stand up without sliding down the stairs to free your feet, looking like an intoxicated caterpillar in the process.

            I don’t know. Why women feel they must subjugate themselves to this nonsense is beyond me :P

          • popok

            because dress’s are fun!! And besides the problem is the underskirt/stool/shoes, she was also probably trying to get up without her shoes stepping on the dress. Trust me. I know. Tripping is more forte.

          • popok

            wow I did not mean stool. I meant tulle. I’m tried lol.

        • http://www.facebook.com/lankyschmit Kat Smith

          Totally thought she would just stay down there too

        • http://www.facebook.com/Liliana.Sa Liliana Sa

          OMG…its like she was waiting for someone to help her up so she put her head down

        • Daughter of Eve

          I loved the fact that she was having a laugh. How amazing was Hugh Jackman running up to offer help!

      • Ellen

        I’m glad I stuck around. Btw, for a moment there after she fell she looked like she was just gonna give up on ever getting up again and get some sleep on those stairs. Did I imagine that?

        (it’s not that clear on the gif on this page though)

  • http://twitter.com/clariclaudia13 Claudia Guinansaca

    uh-oh. Mistake on the third gif… Jennifer Aniston not Lawrence haha

    • http://forgiveyourmind.tumblr.com/ Tariq

      I have Lawrence on my mind! Woops! Fixed. Thanks :)

  • Gary65

    Why can’t they just do the award shows this way? It’s a hell of a lot funnier and I would have been spared WSYB.

  • http://forgiveyourmind.tumblr.com/ Tariq

    Apologies if it takes some time to get the GIFs to this article. Finding these on tumblr is incredibly difficult sometimes!

    • http://twitter.com/w_lowry Will Lowry

      Good work scouting them all on Tumblr!

      • http://forgiveyourmind.tumblr.com/ Tariq

        Thank you!

  • Amanda M

    I humbly request a gif of KStew’s incredibly awkward limping.

    • http://forgiveyourmind.tumblr.com/ Tariq

      I think we got it. ;D I think. XD

  • Gary65

    Oh God I would have paid for Dan & Kristen to just start making out right there on the stage. It would have been so funny.

  • Wilma

    Dan + Kristen. So many feels.

    • Sam

      They both look kinda star struck in each others presence lol, especially Kristen… well in this GIF they do :P

  • LunaLovegood

    This is awesome. But I was wondering tommorow are you’s going to post videos of the best moments from the Oscars.

    • http://forgiveyourmind.tumblr.com/ Tariq

      We will absolutely post a proper recap with ALL the awesome stuff!

  • Dra

    Could Kristen Stewart be any more unhappy about presenting?

  • Allison L.

    So obsessed with Aaron Tveit! He is incredible!

    (this is my official request that Hypable follow Graceland starting this summer!)

    • Kristen Kranz

      Love him. I hadn’t heard of him before Les Mis, but as soon as I left the theatre I ran home and downloaded anything I could find.

      • Sam

        Lol I know what you mean. He was also on Gossip Girl. He had a relatively small part but he is hard to forget :D

  • http://www.facebook.com/Froglover16 Lyndsey Salisbury

    Of course Adele won the Oscar. Adele wins ALL the awards.

  • Skipper!

    I’m so glad you guys at Hypable understand me! These gifs made my night!

  • Gary65

    Of course she fell. Why am I not surprised? xD

  • Alcyone

    This one looks like it was part the pre-show red carpet interviews, but I think it’s hilarious! I love Jennifer Lawrence!


  • 7Starrchasers

    Even when she FALLS Jennifer Lawrence is beautiful…. GOD I LOVE THIS GIRL!

  • http://twitter.com/akacj7 Caroline J.

    only J Law can fall over at the Oscars and get away with it. And with grace, ironically, nonetheless.

  • ravenclaw1991

    Once again, Tariq, you are awesome. And poor Jennifer Lawrence! D: I can’t believe she fell, but she did it gracefully. I love her so much!

  • http://twitter.com/Dillon_Mays Dillon Mays

    Being totally honest, I didn’t find anything special about the Les Mis performance. It’s the same as in the movie and any good stage production of it. Happy for Jennifer though.

    • Divya

      They actually bothered NOT to lip-sync. Notice the ear-pieces. This was the same method used in the film, which they demonstrated on stage here. I suppose you’ve watched way too many stage productions of ‘Les Mis’, and that makes everything seem ho-hum, doesn’t it?

      • http://twitter.com/Dillon_Mays Dillon Mays

        I know they didn’t lip-synch. I never said that. And I’m seen two productions. All I’m saying is that yes it was good, but I don’t understand all of the praise about it. I’m not trying to be mean about it, just expressing an opinion.

  • shelly

    Can you make one of Kristen Stewart hopping off stage after they presented?

  • Glaciusx

    Thanks for this….I was too busy watching the adventures of the 2nd Doctor on BBC America. :)

  • LunaLovegood

    One The GIFt where is says Aaron Tveit making appearing on stage being sexy what was he doing ?

    • http://forgiveyourmind.tumblr.com/ Tariq

      Lol I just fixed that. Yay live blogging, where typos happen and you just say “Screw it. NEXT GIF!”

    • http://forgiveyourmind.tumblr.com/ Tariq

      Also I just re-read your question: He was singing his part for the Les Mes performance.

  • Azeem

    Jennifer Lawrence’s knees couldn’t handle so much awesomeness!

  • http://www.eigakanthemovietheater.blogspot.com Jenny Leigh

    I love the Meryl and Daniel interaction — best actors of all time joking about how great they are. I love it!

  • Winkyxx

    Who ever invented gifs… i love them.
