Jackie Hoffman's "Feud" Emmy loss was an iconic mess

Laura Dern Emmys 2017

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory's Jackie Hoffman got all glammed up for the 69th annual primetime Emmy Awards on September 17, and boy, was she ready for her close-up. When the camera panned over the nominees for the Best Supporting Actress in a Limited Series win, you could clearly make out Hoffman screaming "DAMN IT!".

To be sure, this was not the last of Hoffman's reaction to losing the Emmy. "DAMN IT!" after presenter Riz Ahmed crushed her Emmy dreams and announced Big Little Lies star Laura Dern as the victor instead. But don't worry just yet - she's only kidding. She went on to tweet a couple of outlandish claims about the actress, including, "I hear that Laura Dern runs a child porn ring" - which many people thought crossed a line into poor taste.

Again, in case I wasn't clear, this was obviously a joke on Hoffman's part and a very amusing one at that.

Dern's parents are actors Diane Ladd and Bruce Dern.

Her response quickly took social media by storm, with many assuming Hoffman's reaction was genuine.

What do you think of Jackie Hoffman's reaction?

Ok Ann Dowd went through this 7 times before she won so I feel better now.

And then, for her final tweet in this fake Twitter tirade saga, Hoffman was forced to clarify she was not being serious, for those who had been confused.
