If you didn’t notice this before, you will never be able to un-see it now. Cameras panned to an excited Nicole Kidman at one point during the Academy Awards on Feb. 26…and the Internet immediately began freaking out over the way she was clapping. You HAVE to see the bizarre GIF that has everyone talking!
Nicole Kidman, 49, looked absolutely stunning at the 2017 Oscars, but when she was caught on camera during the ceremony, the focus wasn’t on her fabulous gown or flawless beauty look: It was all about her hands. The actress’ method of clapping was totally odd, and you kind of just have to see it yourself to know what we mean. Check out the GIF and see the hilarious comparisons people made on Twitter right here:

Regardless of what was going on with her clapping, it’s pretty obvious Nicole was having a great time! She was nominated in the Best Supporting Actress category for her role in Lion at the show, and although she lost out to Viola Davis, she clearly still had a fun night out with her husband, Keith Urban, who proudly sat by her side. Something tells us Keith probably couldn’t care less about the way Nicole claps!
The couple was actually front and center during one of the most hilarious bits of the night, when Jimmy Kimmel invited a group of unsuspecting tourists into the Dolby Theater to get a REAL taste of Hollywood. While the country singer filmed the whole ordeal from his seat, Nicole excitedly interacted with the now-famous “Gary from Chicago,” who immediately began trending on Twitter for his starstruck reaction to everything going on around him. So epic!
HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Nicole Kidman clapping? Do you think people were being too hard on her?
