Glenn Close proved to everyone watching the Oscars on Sunday (April 25) that she knows how to get off.
The prestigious actress gave us the most memorable moment of the low-key ceremony when she rocked her booty during the live broadcast. But how did it all happen?
Questlove and Lil Rel Howery were playing a musical trivia game with the audience between categories. Each “contestant” had to correctly guess a song and indicate whether or not it was nominated for an Oscar. When it was Close’s turn, the song in question was “Da Butt” from 1988.
“It’s not fair to Glenn Close. You don’t know ‘Da Butt’,” Lil Rel told the respected actress.

“Wait just a second. It’s ‘Da Butt.’ I know that, “Close replied to a bewildered audience.” ‘Da Butt’, it was a classic song by the big go-go group from Washington, DC EU Shout out to Sugar Bear and all of the Backyard Band. “
Close then recalled that Spike Lee wrote the song for his film School Daze, but the Oscars sadly ignored it. When asked if she was familiar with the iconic dance “‘Da Butt”, she immediately began to shake her back in her elegant blue dress.

At the 2021 Oscars, Close was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her work in Netflix-produced Hillbilly Elegy, but ultimately lost to Youn Yuh-jung (Minari). However, she definitely won the unofficial award for Best Loot on Live TV.
