What is happening here?! Nicole Kidman apparently can’t clap. The Lion actress, 49, was caught awkwardly clapping during the 2017 Oscars and the internet can’t get over it. Watch the funny moment in the video above.
The LOL moment was captured during Viola Davis’ emotional acceptance speech for best supporting actress for her performance in Fences.
“Why does Nicole Kidman clap like The Grinch?!” one person on Twitter wrote, while another added: “SOMEONE PLEASE TEACH NICOLE KIDMAN HOW TO CLAP.”
This isn’t the first time that the Oscar-winning star — who perhaps had heavy rings on her fingers — has been mocked for her style of applauding.
During the 2015 Oscars, one viewer tweeted: “Has anyone else noticed Nicole Kidman is clapping like she just got a manicure & doesn’t want to mess it up? #Oscars.”
