Glenn Close did not win an Oscar this year for her role in Hillbilly Elegy but she did kind of steal the show anyway.
During a game segment called Questlove’s Oscars Trivia, actor and comedian Lil Rel Howery, who was in Best Picture nominee Judas and the Black Messiah was out in the socially-distanced crowd to ask audience members to answer questions about songs that Questlove played.
He challenged the Close with a question about the 1988 song Da Butt.
“Wait a second, I know – that’s ‘Da Butt.’
It was a classic song by the great Washington, D.C. go-go band E.U. (Experience Unlimited).”
Spike Lee had it written for his brilliant movie School Daze, and my friends at the Oscars missed it and it wasn’t nominated so it couldn’t have won, which I think is…”
(The audio cut out her expletive…)
Close then showed off her dance moves shaking it in her sparkly blue gown and Howery was impressed,
“This is the blackest Oscars of all time, y’all.”
(FYI: Hate to be a pooty parper, but the whole thing was planned… still fun)
