Awards shows are always hit or miss. Sometimes they’re worth the three plus hours that you sacrifice from your evening and you actually enjoy the dapper gentlemen, glamorous dresses, jokes, the surprises and the speeches.

The rest of the time, it's just not worth it to turn it. Next time when you feel the need to change the channel? Remember that the real reason why you're watching... is so that you can say you knew that moment would be turned into a GIF.

Without further ado, here are some of the GIFs that you all knew you’d be using for your text messages, Tumblr posts and Facebook comments. 

Let’s start with a versatile crying face GIF that anyone can use in the near future courtesy of Chrissy Teigen at this year’s Golden Globes. 


For some reason, John Travolta could not say Idina Menzel’s name at the 2014 Oscars.


The iconic moment when Taylor Swift got Kanye’d at the 2009 VMAs. 


During the 2001 VMAs, Queen Bey confirmed her pregnancy... Fierce Beyoncé style. 


Oh, and that naughty Benedict Cumberbatch likes to photobomb awards show pictures.

Example 1: Oscars, 2014

Evidence 2: Golden Globes, 2015 


There were plenty of J. Law moments to choose from, but when she tripped on the red carpet during the 2014 Oscars and then Ellen made a joke about it right away, it pretty much sealed the deal as a historic awards show moment. 



The 2014 Oscars pretty much was a highlight of funny moments including a segment of Celebrities Are Just Like Us: They collect pizza money out of a hat and eat pizza too! 




Also Pharrell and his hat danced with everybody. 




I’m not sure what the best part of this gif is? The fact that Elisabeth Moss’ first reaction was to flip off the mani cam or Giuliana Rancic’s panicked face after it happens. 


Another part of the Golden Globes that we all loved was that we all realized for the umpteenth time that we want to be Emma Thompson.

This funny yet awkward Seinfeld reunion between Bryan Cranston and Julia Louis-Dreyfus consisted of a heated make out session during the 2014 Emmys.


And I’ll leave you with this... everyone should react like Adele did when she got cut off during the Brit Awards 2012.
