‘Suicide Squad’ Just Won an Oscar, LOL: The Internet Reacts
Suicide Squad, the film that was literally nominated for not one, but two Razzie awards this year and which holds a 26% rating on Rotten Tomatoes (yes, really), took home the… excuse me, it’s difficult to type this… Oscar for Achievement in Makeup and Hairstyling during the 89th award ceremony on Sunday, February 26.
Naturally, the Internet exploded with hilarious reactions and memes, with many pointing out all the critically acclaimed films that have actually not won Oscars, like The Shawshank Redemption (again—yes, really).
See responses to the 2016 DC and Warner Bros. movie’s win from across social media, below:

@jerrythornton1 FYI Suicide Squad has 1 more Academy Award than Shawshank does.
