Twitter is mesmerized by Gwyneth Paltrow's slow walk at the Emmys

Between Natasha Lyonne's bizarre clapping, the audience laughing at the Kardashians and Christina Applegate's red carpet interviews, the 2019 Emmy Awards produced a slew of viral moments -- but there's one clip in particular that seemed to be everywhere the morning after the show.
