During his monologue, host Jimmy Kimmel mentioned the 2017 Best Picture gaffe. The cameras cut to "La La Land" star Emma Stone, who was part of the *almost* winning team, and a key name in the ensuing snafu.

So when Jimmy Kimmel brought up the gaffe again, Emma Stone looked a bit abashed -- and her BFF Jen was all over it, laughing in her face as all true friends would.

UPDATE: The clear GIF/meme winner of the 2018 Oscars is Jennifer Garner for her viral reaction shot that no one understands yet. Sorry, Emma and JLaw. Silver still puts you on the podium.
