Glenn Close Reveals the Truth About Her Viral 'Da Butt' Moment at Oscars 2021

Glenn Close is opening up to explain what the true story behind that viral “Da Butt” moment at the 2021 Oscars.

The eight-time Oscar-nominated actress, who was nominated this year for her work in Hillbilly Elegy, contributed to the most entertaining moment of the night during a funny segment with Lil Rel Howery.

Lil Rel went around the room and asked nominees some trivia questions about previous movie songs. When it was Glenn‘s turn to reveal her knowledge, she had to say if “Da Butt” was actually nominated for an Oscar or not. The comedian assumed she wouldn’t know the song, but she revealed she actually did know it! Glenn even know the song was by EU and that it was in the Spike Lee movie School Daze. She then shook her booty during a little dance moment.

Now, Glenn is revealing what she did and did not know before that moment happened!

Glenn took to Instagram on Monday night (April 26) to talk about attending the Oscars with her good friend, screenwriter Chris Terrio, and sitting with winner Daniel Kaluuya and his friend Darrell Britt-Gibson.

“I knew that Lil Rel was going to quiz me about ‘Da Butt’ and all three guys helped me run through what I was to say. Darrell insisted that I mention the Backyard Band, on top of E.U., Suga Bear and the whole DMV,” she explained.

Glenn continued, “I googled ‘Da Butt’ and watched Spike‘s music video so when Lil Rel asked if I could do the dance…you can actually see me think of the video. That part was completely spontaneous. Daniel, Darrell and Chris egged me on!!! It was ALL their fault.”

She concluded her post, “CONGRATULATIONS DANIEL on your BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR Oscar. You are completely brilliant. I now consider both Daniel and Darrell to be friends-for-life!”
