Video: Jackie Hoffman screams 'DAMN IT!' as Laura Dern wins Emmy for Supporting Actress

Jennifer Kline, AOL.com

Most Emmy nominees accept defeat with grace. Jackie Hoffman? Not so much.

The star, 56, was nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress against an all-star lineup, with Laura Dern the clear favorite to take home the coveted statue. As expected, Dern was named the winner -- and Hoffman's reaction is truly priceless. 

In a moment that many mistakenly thought was serious -- come on guys, if you know her at all, you know she's hilarious! -- Hoffman had a meltdown as Dern took to the stage. "DAMN IT!" she yelled. "DAMN IT!"

Later, Hoffman doubled down on Twitter with a deadpan follow-up: "Laura Dern had famous parents. Forgive me for being real people," she wrote, hashtagging "elitism." 

Oh, live TV. You never know what you're gonna get.
