  • Glenn Close may have lost Best Supporting Actress at the Oscars, but she still managed to win the night.
  • The Hillbilly Elegy star delivered one of the most memorable moments of Sunday's Academy Awards after hilariously dancing to "Da Butt" while showing off a surprising amount of knowledge about the song.
  • She instantly went viral for it, and on Instagram, Close explained how this all came together, noting the larger bit was pre-planned — while revealing her dance apparently wasn't.
  • During the bit, Lil Rel Howery went around the room to quiz Oscar nominees on whether certain songs won Academy Awards, and when he got to Close, she was questioned about "Da Butt" from the soundtrack of Spike Lee's School Daze.
  • Unexpectedly, not only did Close identify the song, she seemed to have an encyclopedic knowledge of it.
