If you鈥檝e ever been nominated for an聽award, you probably spent at least half as much time trying to master your gracious loser face as you did writing your acceptance speech. For celebs at awards shows, the pressure is on to remain cool in the face of defeat (and in front of millions of audience members), which is why Outstanding聽Supporting Actress in a Limited Series nominee Jackie Hoffman has people taking notice after her loss to Laura Dern at the 2017聽Emmys.

When presenters Issa Rae and Riz Ahmed announced Big Little Lies鈥 Dern as the winner, the cameras zoomed聽in on each of the other nominees, and that鈥檚 when Hoffman let it rip, yelling, 鈥淒amn it, damn it!鈥 in faux outrage. (Given her comedic past, most people assumed she was just putting on a show.)

The聽Feud: Bette and Joan actress then took her act to Twitter, where she jokingly聽blamed Dern鈥檚 win on nepotism.聽(Dern鈥檚 parents are famous actors.) But聽she didn鈥檛 stop there. She went on to tweet聽a couple of outlandish claims about the actress, including, 鈥淚 hear聽that Laura Dern runs a child porn ring鈥 鈥 which many聽people thought crossed a line into poor taste.

After a few more posts, Hoffman caught聽wind of the response to her self-proclaimed #soreloser tweets聽and felt compelled to let folks know she was joking.

Hoffman has had a varied and exciting career聽as a character actress, but had聽never been nominated for an Emmy聽before this year, which she聽kind of alluded to in yet another tweet during the ceremony. 鈥淥K Ann Dowd went through this 7 times before she won so I feel better now,鈥 she wrote, referencing Dowd鈥檚 win for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for The Handmaid鈥檚 Tale. 鈥淚 love her.鈥

Hoffman didn鈥檛 note Dern鈥檚 history with the awards show, but the Big Little Lies actress was nominated five times before this year, and this was her first win.Sometimes, as they say, these things take time.
