How Jackie Hoffman Won the Internet When Laura Dern Won the Emmy

Hoffman delivered an outsized reaction to the announcement of the victor Sunday night, yelling "damn it!" and hitting the seat in front of her in what appeared to be a delicious moment of reality among the facade of smiles and polite clapping.

When presenters Issa Rae and Riz Ahmed announced Big Little Lies' Dern as the victor, the cameras zoomed in on each of the other nominees, and that's when Hoffman let it rip, yelling, "Damn it, damn it!" in faux outrage. Dern is, of course, the daughter of Diane Ladd and Bruce Dern. But Laura Dern is truly unbelievable, and there's no shame in losing to her.

Instead of the standard polite smile and applause, Hoffman was spotted yelling "Damn it, damn it" and hitting the chair in front of her after Riz Ahmed announced Dern the victor for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama or Limited Series.

After a few more posts, Hoffman caught wind of the response to her self-proclaimed #soreloser tweets and felt compelled to let folks know she was joking. "I hear that Laura Dern looted art from Nazi victims", she tweeted.

She later wrote, "I hear the media actually taking my reaction seriously?"

Hoffman was also up against her Feud castmate Judy Davis, as well as Shailene Woodley, Regina King and Michelle Pfeiffer.

At present, her Twitter bio reads, "http://I'm kidding". No, Jackie Hoffman's reaction to losing an Emmy was a much more honest, much more hilarious reaction.
