Nicole Kidman, 49, looked sexy and chic on the 2017 Academy Awards red carpet when she stepped out in an embellished gown at the Dolby Theatre in LA on February 26 - her gorgeous Armani ensemble fit her figure perfectly.
Another anxious Oscars viewers simply exclaimed: "Someone please teach Nicole Kidman how to clap".
One viewer compared her hands to Dr Seuss's character The Grinch, while another said she had '#sealhands'.
Patel, who has also worked in award-winning movies including Slumdog Millionaire, had been nominated as the best actor in a supporting role for Lion.
Ms Kidman's unorthodox clapping style was just one talking point in a ceremony that saw a few surprises - most notably, Warren Beatty reading out the wrong film as victor in the Best Picture category.
FYI: Nicole is wearing an ArmaniPrive dress.
But it was the hand clap and elongated fingers, shown twice to viewers watching at home, that was most memorable. The way she clapped sparked a series of amusing and hilarious gifs on social media.
