As the year wraps up (hello, December), GQ is sending 2016 off with “The Year’s Funniest Tweets Read by the Year’s Best Actors.” This is not to be confused with Jimmy Kimmel’s reoccurring and increasingly funny Celebrities Read Mean Tweets segment, which doesn’t require the best actors—though there’s often a bunch of those included.
One of the actors reading (and guessing!) the year’s funniest tweets is Donald Glover, star, creator, and writer of Atlanta, one of the year’s best shows. The segment also includes the leads of The People v. OJ: American Crime Story, Cuba Gooding Jr. and Sarah Paulson. Finally, it features stars from the Netflix hit show Stranger Things Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven), Glen Matarazzo (Dustin), Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas), and Finn Wolfhard (Mike). Like Stranger Things, Atlanta has been renewed for a second season.
And if you’re wondering about the masterminds behind the year’s most memorable tweets, which include watching the end of Tron and being tipsy on a plane, look no further than the likes of scrappy up-and-comers Anna Kendrick, Kanye West, and
Deadpool Ryan Reynolds.
“My daughter just sneezed into my yawning mouth. Seemed really fucking pleased with herself. Joke's on her. She'll have to bury me someday,” reads one tweet.
Play along with the stars including Loving’s Joel Edgerton and Moonlight’s Shariff Earp and see if you can guess who tweeted what. Know some funnier celeb tweets? Throw them in the comments.
