Nicole Kidman Clapping at the 2017 Oscars

The Internet Is Obsessed With the Unusual Way Nicole Kidman Clapped at the Oscars

If you thought the jaw-dropping mix-up of La La Land and Moonlight for winner of best picture was the most insane thing that happened at the Oscars on Sunday night, you'd be wrong. Nicole Kidman sat front row with husband Keith Urban, where the cameras captured her clapping excitedly for each and every winner. That's when the internet realized that Nicole's clapping technique is . . . interesting, to say the least. Less like a human being and more like a robot running out of juice, her claps simultaneously entertained and horrified Twitter users, although someone helpfully pointed out that maybe Nicole was clapping that way because of the rings she was wearing (honestly, we're not convinced).
