You know how when you're watching an awards show, they put the faces of all the nominees in boxes on the TV screen so you can watch their reactions when the winner is announced? Most actors on the losing end of those awards, knowing they're being watched at that crucial moment, make sure to applaud politely and force a smile for the winner.
Well, actress Jackie Hoffman is not most people.
At Sunday night's Emmy Awards, Hoffman, who was up for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for Feud: Bette And Joan, responded in epic and unexpected fashion the moment Laura Dern was announced the winner.
But wait, is she serious?

The fact that so many people think Jackie's reaction was "real" is a testament to how great a comedian she is. Her bit was realer than real.— Adam Feldman (@FeldmanAdam) September 18, 2017
