Perhaps by complete accident, Jennifer Garner became the best viral meme from Sunday night’s Oscars ceremony. When the actress was caught on camera, amongst a sea of applauding audience members, she was spotted awkwardly staring motionlessly at the stage, with a look of pure confusion.
The mouth-agape moment captured during the awards show broadcast quickly became a gif, circulating through the Twitter-verse. But as people tweeted, shared, and memed the actress’ blank expression, some couldn’t help questioning: what exactly was going through Jennifer Garner’s head?
“Congrats to Shape of Water! Maybe I should date a fish?” Garner said, referencing the Best Picture-winning film about a woman who falls in love with a fish-man, while possibly commenting on her single status after her recently-official divorce from Ben Affleck.
In another variation, Garner assumes her internal monologue was: “Hey Jimmy Kimmel, what’s in your wallet? Wait where’s my wallet?” the actress joked, plugging her own Capital One Venture Card TV commercial tagline.
Lastly, the mother of three, guessed she was thinking: “Can’t wait to work with Lena Dunham!” Garner exclaimed, referencing her upcoming leading role in the HBO series Camping, which is co-created by Dunham. “Wait, did I sign a nudity waiver?” she added jokingly.
Though Garner’s supposed after-thoughts seem to be in jest, we kind of love that she can have a laugh at her admittedly bizarre Oscars reaction.
