Dame Judi Dench may be one of the most recognisable names in Hollywood but social media users have told her to "work harder" after she missed scooping an Oscar.

The veteran actress who attended the glitzy event with her TikTok famous grandson, Sam Williams, was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in Belfast.

However, the 87-year-old who played Granny in the Kenneth Branagh box office smash sadly lost out on the prestigious gong to West Side Story star, Ariana DeBose.

Since the news, Dame Judi has found herself at the centre of a social media storm, with some users claiming she needed to "work harder".

It comes after Kim Kardashian hit out at women who "don't want to work anymore", with the trainee lawyer saying they need to "get the f**k up and work".

The businesswoman who is known for "breaking the internet" found her now infamous quote doing the rounds again.

One Twitter user said: "In the words of Kim Kardashian, Judi Dench should have worked harder. JK [just kidding], she deserved that Oscar."

A second added: "Judi should have scooped that Oscar."

Before a third user went on to type: "OMG cannot believe Judi Dench didn't win the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress. She was amazing in Belfast and made the entire movie more magical."

However, Regina Hall and Wanda Sykes also made a dig at the James Bond actress during the ceremony.

Hall said: "Dame Judi Dench, we've got something for you, we've got an inspirational quote for you.

"This quote is from Kim Kardashian, 'work harder', that's what we need you to do," while Wanda joked: "You gotta move that a*s babe," before Judi erupted into laughter.

While she may have not taken home an award, she certainly left a mark on the Hollywood event by becoming the oldest ever nominee for Best Supporting Actress.

This year saw her receive her eighth nomination at the event which is dubbed the highlight of the film industry.

Her first recognition came in 1997, for Best Actress in a Leading Role for her role in Mrs Brown.

However, she walked away with her first Oscar award after playing the Virgin Queen, Queen Elizabeth I in Shakespeare in Love back in 1998.
