A Bunch Of Famous People Didn't Clap When Jenny Beavan Won Her Oscar

Jenny Beavan took home the award for Costume Design at the 2016 Oscars on Sunday night for her work on "Mad Max: Fury Road."

Beavan was one of many women who won for their work on the film, which totally cleaned up in the technical categories. (With good reason.) But apparently, Alejandro González Iñárritu, who later won Best Director for "The Revenant," wasn't too impressed with the Academy's decision. 

As Beavan walked toward the stage to accept her golden statue, a whole line of mostly male crowd members, including Iñárritu, noticeably decided not to clap for her while she passed by. Instead, they just sat in their seats looking bored and dissatisfied. Because, like, why should they clap for a woman over the age of 30 who doesn't fit the mold of traditional Hollywood beauty, right? It's hard to imagine these men having the same reaction if Margot Robbie, Brie Larson or Kate Winslet walked by.


Regardless, Beavan accepted her award like a total boss, paying no mind to the shade from the crowd. She showed up looking like a total badass in a bejeweled leather jacket and she used her speech to bring light to environmental issues

"I just want to say one quite serious thing. I've been thinking about this a lot, but actually it could be horribly prophetic, 'Mad Max,'" she said. "If we're not kinder to each other, and if we don't stop polluting our atmosphere, so you know, it could happen." 

Bravo, Jenny!
