Despite the spectacular Oscars gaffe, there was also another issue capturing viewers’ attention – Nicole Kidman’s unusual clapping.
The Lion star sparked much comment on Twitter when the way she applauded was captured on-screen.
Nicole was unfavourably compared to a seal and a sea lion.

...Nicole Kidman clapping is one of the creepiest things I've ever seen— jay (@JMillzTheReal) February 27, 2017
The Oscar-winning actress attended with her singer husband, Keith Urban, and was clearly having a good time.
Judging by the video posted by Keith, we can safely say there’s nothing unusual about the way she waves or blows kisses.
