When you are at the Oscars and someone wins an award, you clap. You clap even when you were nominated in the same category and you lose. You clap even when you are Leonardo DiCaprio and it is your fourth time being nominated and you still lose. There are very few instances, if any at all, when one should not clap for an Oscar winner. But last night, Hollywood's men decided that not clapping for an Oscar winner is justified when said Oscar winner is costume designer Jenny Beavan.

Upon winning the Academy Award for Mad Max: Fury Road's incredible costumes, Beavan took strolled up to the stage wearing pants, a striped scarf, and a bedazzled leather jacket.

This, however, was evidently not enough to muster even a single clap from the row of men she had to walk by to get to the stage. Though a few of them did eventually succumb to common courtesy, watch the Vine below of each tuxedoed dude giving Beavan the side-eyed up-and-down and feel the fury of a thousand Mad Maxes.
