Leading up to Sunday night’s Academy Awards, “La La Land” was the odds-on favorite to win the Oscar for best picture. However one of the most shocking incidents in Oscars history led to Moonlight receiving the award.
As to be expected, Twitter being Twitter, was quick to draw the comparison to the 2016 presidential election inevitable, and some of the jokes almost wrote themselves.
La La Land should have campaigned more in Wisconsin.

But Daily Beast reporter Gideon Resnick was pretty sure the Russians were involved:

And Daily Beast’s Republican political strategist Rick Wilson is convinced that Julian Assange and Wikileaks are to blame:
In London, Assange is stroking his hairless cat and chuckling, "Take THAT Gosling."

However the most amazing response probably came from the one the only Larry Elder.

Jill believes there needs to be a recount for Best Picture. Ha!
You know what’s sad is that there are some idiots out there who would donate more money to her thinking this was real.
She called it a direct threat to democracy.

Actually let’s all just pretend La La Land won the popular vote, that should make everyone happy.
