Los Angeles [U.S.A], Sept. 18 (ANI): It seems like Jackie Hoffman was not pleased as fellow nominee Laura Dern's name was read as the winner in best supporting actress in a limited series or movie.

The presenters Riz Ahmed and Issa Rae announced the winner of the category.

As the screen went on the nominees, the 'Feud' star can clearly be seen onscreen yelling, "Damn it, damn it!" as Dern rose to accept the statuette for her role on HBO's 'Big Little Lies'.

Hoffman also took to Twitter in the moments following her loss, accusing the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences of elitism.

"Laura Dern had famous parents. Forgive me for being from real people #elitism #Emmys2017."

She later made a series of outlandish claims about Dern, including that she "looted art from Nazi victims" and "runs a child porn ring" with the hashtag, #soreloser.

Dern won the trophy for her show 'Big Little Lies,' beating out Judy Davis from 'Feud', Jackie Hoffman from 'Feud', Regina King from 'American Crime', Michelle Pfeiffer from 'The Wizard of Lies' and co-star Shailene Woodley from 'Big Little Lies'. (ANI)
