As Maya Rudolph and Kristen Wiig seemingly improvised their way through the best costume design and production design categories, the camera cut to several actors and directors, and managed to capture Eilish’s “WTF” expression.
It’s not clear if it was directed at the musical portion of the Rudolph-Wiig appearance or Eilish seeing herself on camera, but it quickly became a meme.

Idina Menzel was roped into the meme for her reaction to Eminem’s “surprise” performance, and Eilish’s reaction to it was also memed.

There were theories—the 18-year-old Grammy winner might not know who Rudolph and Wiig are—but can that be possible?
I mean… can it?
Billie Eilish just said that her favorite movie *growing up* was THE BABADOOK and oh no I’m suddenly sinking into my crypt forever #Oscars

Others advocated for Billie Eilish reaction time, as a barometer of sorts.
At this point I'm stumping for a dedicated camera on Billie Eilish, just providing nonstop disbelieving reaction shots to the entire #Oscars ceremony. Every time the show cuts to her, she's got a different "OK, Boomer" expression going on, and I'm all for it. pic.twitter.com/sRYcJSDNrV

Considering the boomer vitriol over her singing the new James Bond theme song, Eilish likely has these kind of reactions on deck at all times.
