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

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

"Forgive me for being from real people #elitism".

At present, her Twitter bio reads, "http://I'm kidding".

Jackie Hoffman was seen screaming "damn it" after she missed out on an Emmy to Big Little Lies star Laura Dern. No, Jackie Hoffman's reaction to losing an Emmy was a much more honest, much more hilarious reaction.

Accepting her award, Dern made sure to emphasise the point of Big Little Lies and its themes of female friendship.

The former Hairspray performer caused a stir online when her non-traditional reaction to the news was caught on camera.

The moment quickly went viral online as viewers took note of Hoffman's less than gracious response.

And that was just the start of a tirade. Almost half an hour later, she upped the ante with "I hear that Laura Dern runs a child porn ring #soreloser Emmys2017". Luckily, actress Jackie Hoffman is bringing vendettas back to the forefront - even in jest.

Hoffman's outlandish tweets harkened to the catty backstabbing depicted in "Feud", where Crawford and Davis actively worked to undermine the other's chance at an Oscar for "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?"

Laura Dern, who picked up the best supporting actress gong for her role in the HBO mini series praised the two female producers in her acceptance speech, acknowledging the difficulties that her friends and colleagues had previously spoken about.
