The INSIDER summary:
• “Suicide Squad” won the Oscar for best makeup and hairstyling.
• The film has been widely panned and was nominated for two Razzies.
• People took to Twitter to joke about Oscar winner “Suicide Squad.”
In a surprise turn of events,”Suicide Squad” is now an Oscar-winning movie. The film won the Oscar for best makeup and hairstyling.
The 2016 DC film about a team of assembled super villains was largely panned by critics, earning only a 26% rating on film aggregator Rotten Tomatoes. It was also honored with two Razzie Award nominations, given to the worst films of the year.
The internet is, of course, having a field day over the movie taking the Oscar home.
But while the movie isn’t exactly the best, the speeches given by the winners Alessandro Bertolazzi, Giorgio Gregorini and Christopher Nelson were lauded for their message and dedication to “all the immigrants.”

Honestly, it feels so great to put our differences aside for one night, as a nation united, to shit on Suicide Squad one last time

Whenever you feel like you can’t accomplish your dreams, remember “Suicide Squad” won an Oscar so really there’s no point to anything at all
