Nicole Kidman clapping like a seal was undoubtedly the second-biggest story to come out of this year's Oscars (after the Best Picture fiasco, of course.)
In case you'd forgotten, a video of Kidman appearing to forget how to clap went viral after the ceremony last month.
Speaking to Kyle and Jackie O this morning, the actress finally explained why she was applauding so strangely: and it was all because of some huge Harry Winston diamonds.
"It was really awkward," she exclaimed.
"I was like, 'I wanna clap, I don't wanna not be clapping' - that'd be worse, right? Like 'why isn't Nicole clapping?'
"So therefore I'm clapping but it was really difficult because I had a huge ring on that was not mine - but it was absolutely gorgeous - and I was terrified of damaging it."
The Big Little Lies star also described the infamous moment when La La Land was wrongly announced as winner of Best Picture.
"It was bizarre. I wasn't sure what was going on," Kidman said.
"No one in the audience was. Then there was some shuffling, envelopes - and people rushing onstage ... I was like 'what is going on?'"
She added that she initially thought it was actually some kind of medical emergency.
"I thought someone wasn't well ... and then I saw people's faces dropping. It was bizarre."
