The moment happened after co-star F. Murray Abraham gave the thank-you speech for the best ensemble in a drama series, and offered a prayer for earthquake victims and for peace in Ukraine and Russia. “Union forever,” he shouted.
Appearing distracted and glancing away from the stage, an angry-looking Plaza uttered what many thought was “Jesus Christ,” footage shows.
Plaza was seen moments earlier adjusting the cross straps of her gown to avoid a potential wardrobe malfunction but it’s not known if perhaps that was the source of her irritation.
Co-star Jon Gries later told Page Six that Plaza was reacting to her dress predicament and was “just being funny.”
HuffPost reached out to Plaza for comment.
