Emma Thompson Wins The SAG Awards With Epic Lupita Nyong’o Photobomb

We all knew Emma Thompson was a superb actress, but this awards season we learned that she’s also a delight. With the shoe-throwing and drink-toting, she’s proved herself to be as much of a straight-talking wildcard as Jennifer Lawrence ever was, and while she might have gotten snubbed for an Oscar nomination for Saving Mr. Banks, she still won the SAG awards with an epic photobomb of Lupita Nyong’o right in the middle of the red carpet.

This is the perfect photobomb: here in an instant, gone in a flash. Also it features Lupita Nyong’o, and we always like seeing her again, especially if it means we get another look at that amazing turquoise Gucci dress she wore to the SAG Awards. (That dress is unconscionably beautiful. We are certain nobody alive can pull that dress off except Lupita Nyong’o, which makes us sad because we want to wear it everywhere.)

We’re not sure from her expression if Lupita Nyong’o has any idea the great Emma Thompson is back there, but Thompson trotted back through later to give her a hug and a kiss on the cheek, so all is good between Thompson and Nyong’o.

Could someone please put them in a movie together? We’d love to see Lupita Nyong’o and Emma Thompson in a buddy cop movie, or a big-budget fantasy movie, or maybe Shakespeare. Pretty much anything. Pay attention, Hollywood: You make it, we’ll buy the tickets.
