Kristen Wiig Sobs on a Kitchen Table, Stirs Up Oscar Buzz in the Trailer for Crying in a Sweater

Oscar season is right around the corner, which means half of Hollywood will be turning in some very emotional performances over the next couple months, all in the hopes of snagging a trophy. The most recent contender? Kristen Wiig. The actress stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live Monday night, and premiered the wrenching trailer for Crying in a Sweater—an indie film filled with turtlenecks and tears.

In this (unfortunately fake) drama, Wiig delivers the performance of her life. One reviewer proclaims that we’ve entered the Wiigaissance. It’s unclear from the trailer exactly what caused this extreme emotional turmoil, which leaves Wiig crying on just about every surface in her home.
