Just when the Oscars were starting to put us to sleep, the award show found it’s saving grace from a group of random tourists. Literally. Jimmy Kimmel and the Academy set out to give several lucky people a tour trip of a lifetime, but simultaneously created the funniest moment of the night.
From Denzel Washington ” officiating” a wedding, to Gary stealing Mahershala Ali’s Oscar shine by making him his personal photographer, the Internet started cracking up after each hilariously awkward minute went by. Check out some of the best moments from the segment below.
This "prank" segment could be set up but it's still more entertaining than the entire show #Oscars
