The 94th annual Academy Awards will definitely be one for the history books. From Dune sweeping up six gongs to Ariana DeBose owning the 2022 awards season. We also had a female power trio as hosts - Amy Schumer, Wanda Sykes and Regina Hall kept everyone entertained and laughing. Amy Schumer’s standalone monologue was filled with the best kind of burns: smart, witty and not too mean. 'Aaron Sorkin, a genius, truly!' she said of the Being the Ricardos director, before adding, 'The innovation to make a movie about Lucille Ball without even a moment that’s funny!'

Beyoncé made a grand return to the stage opening this year’s ceremony singing “Be Alive,” the Oscar-nominated song from King Richard. Liza Minnelli and Lady Gaga had the sweetest moment on stage and had the world weeping. Finally, who could forget a frankly unbelievable [confrontation between Will Smith and Chris Rock](http://Will Smith Slapped Chris Rock At The Oscars Over Jada Joke)? You just could not write that TV moment.

In true award show fashion, the memes have been glorious. Twitter have been golden in spotlighting all the best celebrity reactions and of course, making memes out of them. The memes might just be even better than the show itself - they made the perfect Oscars viewing companion. A special mention goes to Nicole Kidman's epic reaction to theWill Smith and Chris Rock incident- we will never forget it. If you missed the show here are some of the funniest moments of the Oscars 2022 turned into memes:
