The Golden Globes took place on Sunday night, and in addition to being a place to hand out awards and make important political and social statements in support of the Time’s Up movement, the annual show also gave us some surprising reunions. Prepare for the warm fuzzies.
Some of the reunions were carefully orchestrated by producers, including Thelma and Louise stars Geena Davis and Susan Sarandon presenting together on the 27th anniversary of their iconic feminist film classic.
To promote the upcoming reboot of Roseanne, John Goodman and Roseanne Barr presented together and got us excited for our trip back to Lanford, Illinois. The reboot, which will air in March, has the entire original cast returning, including last night’s Best Supporting Actress nominee Laurie Metcalf, who we’re betting split her time at Sunday night’s after party with her Lady Bird cast and her Roseanne family.
One of the more surprising reunions involved Hugh Grant and Sarah Jessica Parker. The pair starred in the 2009 rom com Did You Hear About The Morgans, although we’re not quite sure whether producers put the presenters together on purpose or if it was simply a coincidence. The two appear to have the same level of chemistry now as they did when the movie was released.
Potterheads also received a special surprise during Sunday’s show thanks to Hermione Granger and Cedric Diggory–or as muggles refer to the pair, Emma Watson and Robert Pattinson–presenting on stage together.
Both nominees last night, Baby Driver’s Ansel Elgort and Big Little Lies’ Shailene Woodley posed together for a cute picture. The pair shot to superstardom thanks to the dramatic YA love story The Fault In Our Stars and went on to appear together again in the Divergent series. It would appear they’re still somewhat fond of one another.
We also spotted a few reunions in the crowd during the show and one we hoped was taking place backstage.
Going into one commercial break, we saw Amy Poehler and Aziz Ansari, or as we like to refer to them, Parks and Recreation’s Leslie Knope and Tom Haverford, chatting away. Sadly no one got a pic of that, but cheers to them anyway.
And though we’ve yet to see any photographic proof, we like to think that at some point during the night The Handmaid’s Tale actor Alexis Bledel reunited with her Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, who finally took home a Globe thanks to her work in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
Aren’t reunion shows the best?
