Since the momentous 92nd Academy Award Show, media outlets have been actively reporting the events from the big night. However, The New York Times stood out for its unusual photo captions.
Heather Kelly, a tech reporter from Washington Post, took to Twitter to share some odd captions that the publication posted from the awards.
One screenshot shows a photo of Janelle Monáe in her shimmering dress, with the caption written as, “Beep beep boop.”
“Shout out to the drunk intern having a blast writing NYT Oscars captions,” Kelly captioned her tweet.
Soon, Twitter users began sharing their favorite perplexing photo captions from the awards. Another photo of Florence Pugh and Saoirse Ronan was labeled with the text, “Florence Pugh hides from her nemesis, Saoirse Ronan.”
A photo of Adam Driver was written as, “Who’s going to drive you home, Adam Driver?” Some might call it a bad pun, but one user thinks it is “the funniest of them all.”
Brad Pitt holding onto his Oscar statue was described as, “After the show, Brad Pitt let his hair down but not his Oscar,” while a photo of Martha Stewart simply reads, “Martha Stewart, unbothered.”
From the history-making win of Bong Joon Ho’s Parasite to the unexpected performance by Eminem, the 92nd Academy Awards were truly filled with surprises.
Still, the Oscars were a gift that kept on giving as the New York Times covered the night with hilarious—or genius—photo captions.
