Obviously, Cardi B topped the list

Today, GIPHY released a list of its top performing GIFs from 2018, and it's making us feel seen. The most viewed GIF this year had upwards of 282 million views, and, obviously, it's of the most GIF-able celebrity: Cardi B.

There are more GIFs that reflect the viral moments from the year up until now, and others that have undoubtedly been shared multiple times in more private conversations to show feelings of excitement and love. Last year's list had a similar mix.

Below, we rounded up our favorites from the top 25, which we've definitely been using this whole year (and probably won't stop in 2019). See them, below.

Tyra Banks giving some pretty valuable life advice was number 25 on the list.

A GIF from The Room made number 17 because of the popularity of this year's The Disaster Artist, no doubt.

At number 16, this GIF was a popular result from user searches for "no."

Reggie Watts supporting us is all we needed this year; this was number 14 on the list.

The coolest dog you've ever seen was the eighth most-viewed GIF this year.

This GIF could be sent to anyone you love: friend, family, or partner. That's probably why it came in at number 5.

Colombian pop duo Alkilados were number 2 on the list. We wish we were this excited about anything.

And, of course, Cardi B being her best self made the top of the list. What else would you expect?

Avril Lavigne's latest music video is all the aesthetic inspo my fellow goths need to brood in style all summer long. From her latest album Head Above Water, the visuals for single "I Fell In Love With The Devil" see Lavigne driving the hearse to her own funeral and playing piano in a barren forest. If that's not peak goth, I'm not sure what is.

We also got some validation on that Princess title

On Sunday evening, the Queen of the United States met the first Black Princess. Neither of these titles is technically correct, but when it comes to Beyoncé and Meghan Markle, I said what I said.

Twitter is already obsessed

Captain Marvel actress Lashana Lynch has been cast as the newest 007 agent, according to a report from The Daily Mail.
