Mid-Week in Pictures: Oscars Suddenly Relevant Edition

I guess I picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue. No, wait—that’s not how it’s supposed to go. I guess I picked the wrong year to give up on the Academy Awards. What are the odds that next year’s Academy Awards will be co-hosted by Will Smith and Chris Rock? Because there’s no way the Motion Picture Academy will try the only other host who could bring back viewers: Ricky Gervais. The dilemma is obvious: if they did pick Gervais to host, no Hollywood celebrities would show up. They’d just head straight to the after-parties. In any case, the Smith-Rock memes have piled up so fast in the first 18 hours after the event that we need to have a special TWiP edition right away.
