Jackie Hoffman screams'damnit! while losing Emmy to Laura Dern

Losing to Dern in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or a Movie category, Hoffman made sure that she used her brief time on screen to flawless comic effect. (Dern's parents are famous actors.) But she didn't stop there.

Hoffman has had a varied and exciting career as a character actress, but had never been nominated for an Emmy before this year, which she kind of alluded to in yet another tweet during the ceremony.

For those who don't know, Jackie Hoffman is a 56-year-old actress and stand-up comedian. But don't worry just yet - she's only kidding. "Forgive me for being from real people #elitism #Emmys2017", she tweeted of Dern, the daughter of Hollywood vets Bruce Dern and Diane Ladd. Now, it obviously is the case that Hoffman is playing things up, but some in the media took her comments seriously. I feel very proud to be part of reflecting fierce women and mothers, finding their voice'.

The Feud: Bette and Joan actress then took her act to Twitter, where she jokingly blamed Dern's win on nepotism.

Hurricane Irma: prayers for Barbuda at Southwark Cathedral service
The island of Barbuda was hit hard when the Category 5 hurricane first made landfall with winds of 185 miles per hour. This lovely island is 62 sq miles or 14 miles by 8 miles in size, with a population of over 1500 people.

Well we're feeling incredibly empowered - if you'll excuse us we're off to rewatch Big Little Lies.

The former Hairspray performer caused a stir online when her non-traditional reaction to the news was caught on camera.

Hoffman adds that Colbert himself congratulated her personally and loved her response.
