Chrissy Teigen "Fell Asleep" During Casey Affleck's Oscar Speech

Was it the Zzz's or was it a protest?

By Sowmya Krishnamurthy

What a snooze! Casey Affleck won the Oscar for Best Actor for his role in Manchester By The Sea but many were shocked that it didn't go to Denzel Washington for Fences. Affleck's rambling acceptance, which called Washington his inspiration, was so boring that Chrissy Teigen "fell asleep." 

Cameras spotted the supermodel pretending to take a nap on husband John Legend's shoulder during the show.

Fans reacted, wondering if Chrissy was bored or making a bigger statement about Affleck's win.

This morning, she added to the joke with this tweet:

There's also the other possibility that Teigen was actually silently protesting. Affleck's win has been questioned by many, given that he has a history fraught with allegations of sexual assault. Affleck has been accused of sexual misconduct and harassment by two women who worked on his film I'm Still Here. Both cases were settled in 2010.
