On Sunday night, Jennifer Garner joined the ranks of past Oscar ceremony viral audience moment makers like Nicole Kidman, Steve McQueen, Denzel Washington, and Meryl Streep. Nobody knew what the hell Jennifer was so shook over. My guess was the reality of the situation hit her when she realized that they still had two more damn hours in her Spanx. Jennifer addressed the meme she created on Instagram. We still don’t know what made Jennifer’s face lock up like a frozen computer screen, but she’s laughing at it.

Jen got in three solid jokes about her stunned face, two of which included not-subtle plugs for projects current (Capital One) and upcoming (HBO’s Camping). That’s just smart multitasking.
“Congrats to Shape of Water. Maybe I should date a fish?”
“Hey Jimmy Kimmel, what’s in your wallet? Wait, where’s my wallet?”
“Can’t wait to work with Lena Dunham. Wait, did I sign a nudity waiver?“
That first joke definitely just made Jennifer’s favorite photography agency go out and buy some waterproof camera equipment and splash guards. You know, just in case she wasn’t actually joking about dating a fish. In the event they’re luck enough to get the call offering them the exclusive pics of her on her first post-Ben Affleck dates, they’re going to want to set up as close to the shore beside the Santa Monica Pier as possible before the ocean’s version of TMZ (Sea-MZ?) beats them to it.
