10 Celeb Best Friends Who Were Nominated for Golden Globes the Same Year
We can't get enough of these dynamic duos - and neither can the Hollywood Foreign Press
Ben Platt & Beanie Feldstein
The dynamic duo have been besties since high school - they went to prom together - but met in middle school, bonding over their love of theatre at a Bat Mitzvah. They were reunited when they both ended up attending Harvard-Westlake School in Sherman Oaks, California, for high school, and have been each other's biggest cheerleaders ever since.
Feldstein is nominated for best actress in a motion picture, musical or comedy, for her role in Booksmart, while her bestie is nominated for best actor in a TV series, musical or comedy, for his role in The Politician.
Jennifer Aniston & Reese Witherspoon
Both women are nominated for Golden Globe Awards for best performance by an actress in a television series - drama this year for their roles in The Morning Show. But even though they're technically competing this awards season, they're still the Green sisters, through and through.
Witherspoon posted a photo of the pair - who first met when Witherspoon played Aniston's sister on Friends - wrapping season 1 of their Apple+ show, and wrote of Aniston, "There are not enough hugs, heart emojis or words to express how much I cherish working with @jenniferaniston. ❤️😍 She is one of the hardest working people I know."
Kate Winslet & Leonardo DiCaprio
A whopping seven times - that's how many Golden Globe nominations Winslet and DiCaprio have been up for together over the past 20 years. The actors first met on the set of 1998's Titanic, reunited in 2009 for Revolutionary Road (both of which earned them individual Golden Globe nominations) and came together to celebrate each other's wins in 2016 - Winslet for Steve Jobs and DiCaprio for The Revenant.
Emma Stone & Andrew Garfield
Viola Davis & Octavia Spencer
Amy Schumer & Jennifer Lawrence
When it comes to Hollywood's most treasured best friendships, few can compete with J. Law and A. Schu's connection - not even stiff Golden Globe competition. In 2016, the pair were nominated in the same category for their performances in Joy and Trainwreck, respectively. Lawrence ultimately took home the honor.
Michael Fassbender & Alicia Vikander
So, they're not technically best friends - the private couple met on the set of The Light Between Oceans and quietly married in 2017 - but they did boast a slew of nominations at the 2016 awards. Vikander was nominated for The Danish Girl and Ex Machina, while her leading man was up for a statue for his portrayal of Apple's founder in Steve Jobs.
Tina Fey & Amy Poehler
Jake & Maggie Gyllenhaal
Ben Affleck & Matt Damon
The world first fell in love with Affleck and Damon's unbreakable bond in 1998 when the pair were up for three Golden Globe awards between them - a shared nomination for best screenplay for Good Will Hunting and an acting nod for Damon's portrayal of the film's protagonist.
