The Rock Explains the Intense Look on His Face During the Oscars Best Picture Mixup (Pic)
Throughout most of last Sunday’s 89th Academy Awards, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was his usual jovial self, cracking jokes and flashing that big million dollar smile.
However, when the shit hit the fan during the final award of the night, and La La Land was mistakenly announced as the winner of Best Picture, The Rock looked like he was ready to come running down the aisle, jump onto the stage, and hit some puny producer with a Rock Bottom, or maybe a People’s Elbow.

The Rock’s reaction to the envelope screw up is that of a super hero thinking he’s about to have to save everyone. pic.twitter.com/0e7qW1DG79

On Wednesday the Rock took to Instagram to tell his fans exactly what was going through his mind during the Best Picture mixup. And it turns out, it was pretty much exactly what it looked like.
Check it out:
You can literally see my wheels spinnin’ on whether or not I should hit the stage and take down an Oscars producer who I thought went rogue and was trying to sabotage our final moment of the night as La La Land was accepting for Best Picture. Seconds before this I saw out of the corner of my eye, the producer saying loudly, “NO IT’S MOONLIGHT, the winner is MOONLIGHT!” as he walked up onto the stage. When he walked on stage, I remember sitting up and saying to @laurenhashianofficial, “What the f*cks he doing?”. She grabbed my arm and said, “Oh my God, they made a mistake”. The rest was history. In crazy moments like that, we need leaders to step up and take charge… I give La La Land producer, Jordan Horowitz much respect for stepping up to the mic and calling the Moonlight filmmakers and actors to the stage to accept their award. Thankfully, Jordan gave us the clarity we needed, because as much as I love and adore Meryl, I was willing to rumble over her to take down the producer going rogue. No business like show business. #Oscars #ThatLook #MattDamonWasReadyToGoBourne #IWasReadyToGoHobbs #LetsDoThis
You gotta love the Rock.
