Everyone wants to know what Jennifer Garner realized during the Oscars


Something gave Jennifer Garner pause during the Oscars—and the internet is trying to figure out what the heck it was that made her look so suddenly distressed.

A video that went viral on Twitter on Sunday showed Garner’s “OMG” moment.

In the clip, Garner’s face suddenly falls, her eyes widen, and her hands pause mid-clap.

Twitter offered a vast range of theories about what Garner could have been thinking at that moment. Was it a relatable period catastrophe?

A career epiphany?

A sudden financial crisis? (Garner has done, like, a million Capital One commercials.)

Or something darker?


No matter what was up with Garner, Twitter is stoked to have the perfect new reaction GIF.
