Nicole Kidman Shines At The 89th Academy Awards

HOLLYWOOD CA- FEBRUARY 26 Actor Leonardo Di Caprio speaks onstage during the 89th Annual Academy Awards at Hollywood & Highland Center

He announced La La Land as the victor of the Best picture Oscar - only for it to emerge minutes later that Moonlight had actually won.

Kidman is nominated for best actress in a supporting role for her work in Lion, going up against fellow nominees Naomie Harris (Moonlight), Viola Davis (Fences), Octavia Spencer (Hidden Figures) and Michelle Williams (Manchester By the Sea).

One viewer compared her hands to Dr Seuss's character The Grinch, while another said she had '#sealhands'.

But once Twitter users had gotten over the incredible blunder, the internet turned to more pressing matters, namely why can't Nicole Kidman clap?

At least Nicole's clapping moment was not as odd as this Brendan Fraser freakout...

In a further twist, footage has emerged from the Oscars in 2015 - where once again, Kidman's clapping was on the unusual side. On Wednesday afternoon, he helped laud Zac Brown with the 2017 Artist Humanitarian Award (which Urban himself won in 2016), and that evening, he played a show for CRS attendees, performing stripped-down versions of songs from his newest studio album, Ripcord.

Presenting the prize, Warren Beatty announced the victor as La La Land - but it emerged that he had been holding the Best Leading Actress envelope, which featured Emma Stone's name as the victor for her turn in the film.
