If you watched the 2016 Academy Awards last then you the night’s most memorable moment was not Spotlight’s mild upset win for Best Picture, or even Leonardo DiCaprio finally taking home the gold for his work in The Revenant.

No, the moment that really that got the attention of the (surprisingly small) TV audience watching at home was a random, unexplained, and completely baffling cameo from actress-turned-conservative-commentator Stacey Dash:

Stacey Dash Appears in Most Awkward Oscars Moment EVER

As far as we can tell, Dash’s appearance was meant to be funny.

This morning, the 50-year-old Fox New pundit wrote a blog post in which she purported to explain why she was at the Oscars, but really just rambled on about the difference between "free-thinking blacks" and "cookie-cutter blacks."

Needless to say, we’re still pretty confused.

Thankfully, we have Chrissy Teigen’s amazing facial expression to help sum up our feelings about the whole awkward situation:

Chrissy Teigen Cringe

This isn’t the first time that Chrissy’s grimace has given us awards show gold, but this time, she accomplished the remarkable feat of summarizing an entire nation’s embarrassment with one epic cringe.

When some Twitter followers mistakenly thought that Chrissy was reacting to Sarah Silverman’s jokes about James Bond’s dong, Mrs. Teigen-Legend quickly cleared things up:

"I was making the face from the Stacey Dash moment ahhhhhhh not Sarah!" Chrissy tweeted. "No I am not good at poker."

Thankfully, she is good at making us laugh with a simple contortion of her facial features.
