Oscars 2020: Billie Eilish slammed for cringing as Maya Rudolph and Kristen Wiig sing
The duo turned their monologue to an audition that got them some of the biggest laughs from the crowd and fans except Billie Eilish
Billie Eilish has come under fire after the camera focused on her unimpressed cringe look at Maya Rudolph and Kristen Wiig singing 'Lady in Red' during the 92nd Academy Awards on Sunday.
The 2020 Oscars started off in full swing on Sunday night after Hollywood's biggest stars made their way down the red carpet and into the Dolby Theatre. The show was opened by a lively and entertaining performance by Janelle Monae. Later, Chris Rock and Steve Martin took to center stage with an opening monologue and roasted the nominations and the award ceremony.
Down the line, Maya Rudolph and Kristen Wiig entered the stage to present the award for Best Production Design and Best Costume Design. The duo turned their monologue to an audition that got them some of the biggest laughs from the crowd and fans except Billie Eilish.
After presenting the award to Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’s Barbara Ling and Nancy Haigh for Best Production Design, the pair pretended to be really mad and turned away from the audience for a moment before facing the audience and saying, “We’re not mad,” Kristen shared.
“That was an act,” Maya explained. “We were acting.”
Adding to that Kristen said, “Yeah, we don’t just do comedy."
The duo then went on to perform a number of medleys that included 'Lady in Red', 'Thong Song' and 'Vogue', while presenting the award for Best Costume Design. During their performance, the camera focused on Billie Eilish who had an unimpressed and cringing look at the pair's performance.
Taking to Twitter after seeing Billie's reaction, viewers called her out saying, "Billie Eilish got zero references from Kristen Wigg and Maya Rudolph’s brilliant presentation for Costume Design and I don’t want to see her face again for the rest of the night. #oscars #snl."
Adding to that another fan said, "I’m still mad that Billie Eilish rolled her eyes at Maya Rudolph and Kristen Wig. #Oscars."
"As if I needed another reason to dislike Billie Eilish, she had to go and make that stupid face at Maya Rudolph and Kristen Wiig while everyone else in the audience was laughing. #Oscars2020 #Oscars," a viewer wrote.
Another said, "I'm all for Billie Eilish being "independent" but to give a subtle side-eye to the comedic geniuses that are Kristen Wiig and Maya Rudolph is just no #Oscars."
"How dare Billie Eyelash make a stank face during Kristen Wigg and Maya Rudolph’s presentation! #Oscars," a viewer wrote.
