Was Chrissy Teigen Sleeping At The Oscars? (Video)

Model Chrissy Teigen appeared to be sleeping during part of the Academy Awards on Feb. 26 at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles (video below). notes that Teigen looked to be snoozing during Casey Affleck's Best Actor acceptance speech, and during the nominees for Best Actress.

Teigen was caught with her eyes closed and head down on the shoulder of boyfriend John Legend, who was on hand to perform two songs from "La La Land."

If Teigen was bored or disinterested, she was in good company. Many folks tweeted pictures of her rumored slumber and their similar feelings:

Girl, I feel you.

[chrissy teigen] taking a nap is all of us.

I guess it's past [chrissy teigen]'s bedtime...? #MerylDontCare #Oscars [ABCNetwork].

shouts to [chrissy teigen] for always keeping it real. She's nodding off at the show like the rest of us at home. Respect. #Oscars.

One day an award show will just leave a camera on [chrissy teigen] the whole time and catch every priceless moment #Oscars.

[chrissy teigen] were you really sleeping at the Oscars during the leading actress nominees?

Can we please soak in the gem that is [chrissy teigen]. Only she can pull off sleeping at the #Oscars.

Chrissy Teigen sleeping during the Oscars is my 2017 mood.

Yo [chrissy teigen] You are my spirit animal sleeping at #Oscars.

Variety reports that the average overnight rating in the top 56 markets for the Academy Awards broadcast was 22.4 million, down from the 2015 broadcast of 23.4 million.

The highlight of the night was when past Oscar winners Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty screwed up the announcement for Best Picture, and gave the Oscar to "La La Land" instead of "Moonlight." This mistake made many people upset, but others took it lightly. 

"Moonlight" director Barry Jenkins told Entertainment Tonight about his feelings when "La La Land" producer Jordan Horowit announced the mistake on live TV:

We spent so much time with the "La La Land crew," it was bittersweet. I think when you're sitting in the room, I've gone through this so much; they call a name, they don't call a name, it is what it is, you get over it.

I had gotten through, and like everyone else I was applauding, I was celebrating the win. And I could see in Jordan's face that he was speaking the truth, and in that moment I just felt I wanted to feel compassion for him.
