On January 29th, the entire cast of Stranger Things was honored at the 2017 SAG Awards, taking home the prize for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series. David Harbour, who plays Sherriff Jim Hopper, gave a rousing speech, thanking fans for their support and framing Stranger Things as a show that stands against “bullies” and “monsters”. While the speech was greatly received, the moment was almost derailed by Winona Ryder, who stood beside Harbour, running a gamut of confused, bizarre facial expressions the entire time. Check it out.
So what was Ryder’s deal, right? Was she high, drunk, or otherwise stuck in her own personal version of The Upside-Down? Gaten Matarazzo defended his co-star, saying she was simply unable to hear Harbour’s speech, but one has to wonder why she didn’t just stand politely and smile (you know, like any other normal human being would have done!).
The folks at imgur got to the bottom of it all. Using secret government technologies, they were able to capture what Ryder was actually reacting too: Pizza.
Okay, probably not, but one thing’s for certain: Ryder probably won’t live this blooper down for many years to come.
Stranger Things Season 2 is currently in post-production, slated to air on Netflix sometime in 2017.
