The feature of last night's Academy Awards was undoubtedly the exchange between Will Smith and Chris Rock, but there were a few other viral moments that grabbed everyone's attention.

If you poked around on social media last night and perused through the commentary on the 2022 Oscars, you most likely saw the viral meme of Nicole Kidman's face. It was a face of shock, mixed in with excitement and a touch of horror. Everyone assumed this trending facial expression was a response to Will Smith smacking Chris Rock in the face, but that's not exactly what happened.

The Mystery of Nicole Kidman's Facial Expression Has Finally Been Solved

It's not what you thought it was, we're sorry to say. Apparently, this was Nicole's face when she saw Jessica Chastain from across the room.

Myung Chun of the Los Angeles Times told Vulture that this was taken before the show even started, and this was merely Nicole's reaction to seeing Jessica.

"It appeared that she was excited to see Jessica Chastain across the room," Chun said. "Kidman then reached out her arms and waved to her with both hands." Jessica responded by walking over to greet Nicole and her husband Keith Urban.

It's not exactly the most exciting story of the night, but it's kind of cute to see the celebs greet each other in a positive way, especially two women who were nominated for Best Actress. Jessica Chastain won the award for her role in The Eyes of Tammy Faye.
