Emmys: Nominee Jackie Hoffman Yells "Damn It" After Loss to Laura Dern
The 'Feud' star was nominated for the first time for best supporting actress in a limited series or movie.
Feud's Jackie Hoffman was not pleased as fellow nominee Laura Dern's name was read in lieu of hers for best supporting actress in a limited series or TV movie at Sunday's 69th Emmy Awards.
As presenters Riz Ahmed and Issa Rae announced the winner of the category, Hoffman was clearly seen onscreen yelling, "Damn it, damn it!" as Dern rose to accept the statuette for her role on HBO's Big Little Lies.
Hoffman, who played Mamacita, Joan Crawford's trusted maid, on Ryan Murphy's FX anthology series, recently told The Hollywood Reporter she was "humbled and amazed" by her first Emmy nomination this year.
The actress later took to her Twitter account to poke fun at her reaction. "Laura Dern had famous parents. Forgive me for being from real people #elitism #Emmys2017," she wrote in one tweet. She later made a series of outlandish claims about Dern, including that she "looted art from Nazi victims" and "runs a child porn ring" with the hashtag, #soreloser.
