Glenn Close may have just lost (again) at the Oscars, but she shook it off — literally!
The Best Supporting Actress nominee for "Hillbilly Elegy" stole the night with a booty-shaking dance that was totally meme-worthy... and planned.
First, Close showed off her music knowledge during a game with comedian Lil Rel Howery. The iconic actress was asked to guess whether a famous song had won an Oscar, been nominated, or not even been nominated.
The night's DJ, Questlove, played a short clip of the song "Da Butt" by Experience Unlimited, which was on the soundtrack of Spike Lee's "School Daze," which nobody expected her to know.
"That's not fair to Glenn Close. You don't know 'Da Butt,'" Lil Rel said.
"Wait just a second. That's 'Da Butt.' I know that," Close said to the crowd's surprise. "'Da Butt,' it was a classic song by the great Washington D.C. go-go band E.U. Shout-out to Sugar Bear and the whole Backyard Band."
She didn't stop there! She added, "So Spike Lee had it written for his brilliant movie ‘School Daze.’ Sadly, my friends at the Oscars missed it and it was not nominated so it couldn't have won."
Shocked, Lil Rel replied, "I wasn't expecting that at all, that you'd know 'Da Butt.’ It's dope, but do you know the dance, though? Do you know how to do 'Da Butt’?”
And that's when Close fearlessly stood up and started shaking her booty! The audience erupted in laughter and cheered.
Close wowed viewers with her impressive dance moves, and people can’t stop talking about it!
Later, however, The L.A. Times confirmed the hilarious moment was a scripted bit.
The "Fatal Attraction" star now ties with the late Peter O'Toole for the actor with the most Oscar nominations — eight — and zero wins. O’Toole was finally given an honorary Oscar in 2003; if Close doesn’t get Oscar gold for her proposed movie version of the musical “Sunset Boulevard,” maybe there’s an honorary statuette in her future!
