The Internet Can't Figure Out Why Gwyneth Paltrow Walked So Slowly at the Emmys
Oh, the goop of it all.
When Gwyneth Paltrow sauntered out to present Lead Actress in a Drama Series at the Emmy Awards, it wasn't her outfit (which looked amazing) that people were focusing on. Instead, it was that very saunter that had Twitter scratching its collective head wondering exactly what was happening to make Paltrow's gait so strange. Paltrow's walked enough red — or purple, in tonight's case — carpets to handle just about any heels (tonight's were Giuseppe Zanotti), so it had to be something else. The cut of the dress, maybe? The pressure of knowing that she could be in the vicinity of Killing Eve's Jodie Comer? Whatever it was, Paltrow's promenade is set to be the Nicole Kidman clap meme of 2019.
Twitter users posited that she could be taking some of her own goop-approved advice. Yoni eggs, CBD, positive affirmations, it could have been just about anything. Maybe the stress of wearing vintage Valentino (her dress was from 1963) had her walking like she was on actual eggshells?
It was a big night for Paltrow. Not only did she present a statuette, but she also arrived with her husband Brad Falchuk on her arm, a rarity for the couple. Falchuk's FX series, Pose, was nominated for Best Drama Series. Paltrow actually has an Emmy. Back in 2011, she took home Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for her role on Glee, which happens to the show that brought her and Falchuk together.
