Haters gonna hate, but Jenny doesn't care!
Jenny Beavan was one of the big winners this awards season after receiving nearly every single distinction in the field of costume design for 2016.
But while accepting the Oscar for her work on Mad Max: Fury Road on Sunday, you would have thought she was the least deserving person in the entire room!

As you may have seen, many of Jenny's filmmaking peers — including Best Director winner Alejandro González Iñárritu — seemed unimpressed with her outfit for the night and didn't even clap while she was walking to the stage!
Thankfully, the 66-year-old costumer couldn't care less about the approval of others and chose to speak to The Hollywood Reporter about the audience's controversial reaction, saying:
"I am a real jeans person. I have clothes to dress up in, but [the Oscars] was a really conscious thing of not just doing the plain black suit. I am British with a slightly rebellious character; I always have been. But, actually, in truth, you've seen me. I'm short, I'm fat. I really would look ridiculous in a gown. What I was actually wearing at the Oscars was sort of an homage to Mad Max — a kind of biker outfit. I thought, 'If I can't beat them, or if I can't sort of join them, then why not try doing something a little bit fun?' And George [Miller] loved it! The [vegan] leather jacket had the Immorten Joe symbol on the back and I was just giving a little wink to Mad Max.
I just think I was quite slow. It is so easy to trip, even though I was wearing a sensible pair of boots. I just wanted to take it slowly. And, honestly, I didn't clap the whole time — your hands get tired. We had done a huge amount of clapping by that time. They didn't have to! I don't mind in the least if they didn't clap. I felt really good, I felt the warmth, I was so proud of doing the film for George and it didn't matter what anyone else thought, really."
But Iñárritu at least did not want to be misunderstood! The Revenant director also spoke out about the moment in a statement on Thursday, saying:
"I think Jenny Beavan is a masterful costume designer and very deserving of the Oscar for Mad Max: Fury Road. By editing and omitting the full reality and suggesting I felt anything but admiration is mean-spirited and false. What you don't see in the 10 second clip being circulated is my applause for Jenny as she ascended the stairs to the stage. I've learned a lot this awards season… that I should never cross my arms when I am sitting down."
We don't think anyone actually ever thought you were boycotting her win, Al — it was just a funny Vine!
Just be careful of resting b*tch face when on camera!
