Even as she had not won anything in Sunday's star-studded event, the 45-year-old became a hot topic online, not for her dress or any blunder.
From Jennifer Lawrence's staircase tumble after earning the Oscar for Best Actress in 2013, to John Travolta's "Adele Dazeem" mishap in 2014, and even Nicole Kidman's weird clapping at last year's show, viewers will always find some candid moment of freakish hilarity to laugh it. Had she forgotten to turn her hair straightener off? "What a treat. That Jennifer Garner's a good egg". It's as if she was just hit by the most significant epiphany of her life and that nothing would ever be the same afterwards.
Probably not. Still, the internet just loved that she poked fun at herself.
Garner's expression during the ceremony wasn't the only way she stole the spotlight at the star-studded awards. Garner said in one video. "Wait where's my wallet?" "What exactly IS in my wallet?" another chimed in, paying homage to the mother-of-three's Capital One tagline.
Her cobalt blue Versace gown rocketed to the top of best-dressed lists, while her super-fit physique got fans excited for her return to the big screen in 2018 action movie, Peppermint. After Philipps's shocked face went viral during the La La Land/Moonlight mix-up, she has continued to call back to it on social media. "Wait, where's my wallet?" she added, referring to her commercials for United States bank Capital One.
