The next category after Brad’s win? Why, none other than Outstanding Performance by an Actress in a Drama Series, which Jen was up for and similarly won. From backstage, Brad was able to view the fellow Friends actress’ speech and was heard saying, “Oh, wow.”
But, as fate would have it, there was more in store for Brad and Jen. The pair crossed paths once again just as Brad was exiting the press room and she was entering it, giving them both a brief, beautiful moment to congratulate one another and pull each other into an adorable hug that we’re still thinking about two years later.
“It was absolutely fun. You know, Brad and I are buddies. Like, we’re friends and we speak.” Jennifer told Howard Stern about her and Brad’s SAG reunion while visiting his show in June 2021. “There’s no oddness at all, except for everyone that probably watched it and was wanting there to be.”
Unfortunately, it looks unlikely that we’ll see Brad and Jennifer reunite at this year’s SAG Awards. While Jen is nominated once again for Outstanding Performance by an Actress in a Drama Series for her work on The Morning Show, Brad is not up for any awards this time around.
However, as we prepare for the 2022 SAG Awards on Sunday, Feb. 27, take a fond look back at Jennifer’s incredible night at the awards ceremony—and her sweet moment with Brad—below.
