Oscar Nominees Read Mean Tweets About Themselves

This should balance out all the praise actors will be getting this weekend at the Academy Awards.

  • This Sunday marks the 88th Oscars, the Entertainment Industry's most glamorous night, and because Twitter sometimes serves as that irresistible blank space on the door of the junior high bathroom stall, actors become the target of some seriously catty tweets around this time. Thanks to Jimmy Kimmel Live's ongoing Mean Tweets segment and these actor's thick skins, we all get to laugh along.

    To get super meta, here's some YouTube comments on a video about celebrities reading comments made online about themselves:

    Waylon Carnath: I wonder if that was El Chapo that tweeted those mean things to Sean Penn

    Lawrence Calablaster: Zach Galifanakis' eyebrows are amazing :)

    I have to agree with that last comment, though no one seems to know why his eyebrows were in that state, he gave some hilarious fauxplanations in his interview with Kimmel that night.

    So far the video has over 2 million views in just over a day, but we'll have to wait and see how many tune in to the #OscarsSoWhite Sunday ABC 5:30 p.m. PT/8:30 p.m. ET on Sunday with red-carpet coverage starting at 4 p.m. PT.
