Her costar Stephanie Hsu was up for the same award, as was Angela Bassett for her work in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
While Stephanie looked adorably excited for her EEAAO costar, fans were quick to point out Angela's look of disappointment at the award's announcement. Angela was nominated for playing the grieving mother of T'Challa in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which she did while grieving the real-life death of her costar Chadwick Boseman.
While Jamie Lee is a deeply talented actor in her own right, let's just say there was some uproar that Angela did not take the award home for her work in Wakanda Forever as well as her legacy as an actor.
People were also quick to call out that Jamie Lee beat Stephanie — who had a much longer and more integral part in the film than she did.
Her win even initiated a discussion on the roles nepotism plays in awards shows like these. Jamie Lee is the daughter of Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh — both Oscar nominees.
And, of course, some downright hilarious tweets were made:
