Pitt won best supporting actor for his role in “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.” Aniston beat out Elisabeth Moss (“The Handmaid’s Tale”), Jodie Comer (“Killing Eve”), Helena Bonham Carter (“The Crown”), and Olivia Colman (“The Crown”) for outstanding performance by an actress in a drama series.
The backstage moment was captured in four perfect photos.
If you’re wondering what the two winners – who dated and were married for seven years – said to each other, it probably wasn’t much more than congratulations and smiles. According to the photos’ timestamps, the images were taken only tenths of a second apart.
Pitt and Aniston ran into each other backstage at 6:09:18 p.m. PT.
The photos of Aniston departing were taken at 6:09:22 p.m.
Aniston turned to leave, and Pitt slowly let go of her wrist.
No matter how small the moment, fans couldn’t get enough.
