There were a lot of memorable moments from the 68th Primetime Emmy awards on Sunday night — from “The People vs. OJ Simpson” cleaning up to Louie Anderson’s surprise “Baskets” win. But there’s one thing that slipped by most people that we simply can’t unsee.
When Courtney B. Vance accepted his award for Outstanding Actor in a Limited series — another win for “The People vs. OJ Simpson — he gave a massive shoutout to his wife Angela Bassett. As the crowd applauded the Academy Award-winning actress, it was “Modern Family” star Julie Bowen that seemed most impressed.
It looks like she simply can’t believe she’s sitting that close to the star of “How Stella Got Her Groove Back” and four different installments of “American Horror Story.” Perhaps Bowen was just echoing Vance’s love for Bassett, but she is so exasperated by what’s happening in the room — and we can’t get enough of it.
So what’s blowing Bowen’s mind? That’s really only a question she can answer. Until she does though, go ahead and stare at that GIF for a while. If you look at it just right, you may find the meaning of life hidden in there.
