Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway‘s Best Picture mix-up will go down as the biggest Oscar upset in history. Once viewers were able to pick their jaws up off the floor after the colossal flub, they quickly began drawing comparisons to recent upsets in other spheres — namely the election outcome few saw coming and the Patriots’ improbable, come-from-behind Super Bowl victory.

The consensus on Twitter is that everyone is very much over 11th-hour twists — unless it means there’s still hope for a President Hillary Clinton.

“ARE WE ABSOLUTELY SURE HILLARY DIDN’T WIN,” one Twitter user asked.

“Oscars givin me hope that they might still call it for Hillary,” another said.

For Billy Crystal, it was nothing but wishful thinking.

“Amazing ending,” he tweeted. “Wish that had happened on Election Day.”

Between the election, the super bowl and the oscars I need a Xanax and another Xanax

Elsewhere on Twitter, Donald Trump Jr. tried to use the Oscars flub as an opportunity to rail against Hollywood  — but was quickly shut down.

Interesting mistake, its almost like Hollywood doesn't really care about the little people behind the scenes... https://twitter.com/nytimes/status/836239517938036736
