Jackie Hoffman jokingly pokes fun at Laura Dern after Emmy loss

Jackie Hoffman jokingly pokes fun at Laura Dern after Emmy loss

"Forgive me for being from real people #elitism #Emmys2017", she began, adding, "I hear that Laura Dern runs a child porn ring #soreloser Emmys2017".

Hoffman then took to Twitter to vent further.

The Decider team will be watching and reporting on the 2017 Emmy Awards as they air tonight with reactions to wins (and losses), live-blogs, and where you can stream the winners.

Hoffman didn't note Dern's history with the awards show, but the Big Little Lies actress was nominated five times before this year, and this was her first win. Emphasis on the "stand-up comedian" part of her bio here, because it's important to know that Hoffman was undoubtedly 100 percent joking when she put on her sore loser act on Sunday night.

Samsung reveals autonomous vehicle plans with $300m investment fund
Still, the future is autonomous - at least, that's what we're meant to believe - and Samsung isn't sitting idle there. The new Harman unit will work with Samsung's Smart Machines team to develop new technologies for connected vehicles .

Again, in case I wasn't clear, this was obviously a joke on Hoffman's part and a very amusing one at that.

It's true that 50-year-old actress Laura Dern did have famous parents - actress Diane Ladd and actor Bruce Dern.

Laura Dern, who picked up the best supporting actress gong for her role in the HBO mini series praised the two female producers in her acceptance speech, acknowledging the difficulties that her friends and colleagues had previously spoken about. We're calling that a big, little lie.

"Damn it!" she appeared to scream, twice, after Dern's name was called as the victor.
