Between Best Actress nominee Michelle Williams bringing BFF Busy Phillips and the buzzworthy bromance between The King’s Speech trio Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush and Tom Hooper (a triangle of man-love, as a friend of mine called it), BFFs might have been the biggest winner of all on Sunday evening.
I love that Michelle took Busy as her date throughout this awards season (they went together to the Golden Globes as well). It makes their friendship seem so genuine in a town when so many relationships might be for the cameras.
The whole thing just makes me want to be in on their BFFdom.
And the fact that this grown-man bromance is one of the great news items to come out of The King’s Speech? Adorable. Oh, to be a fly on the wall of their cute accent-laden dinner dates. Sometimes I wonder if Helena Bonham Carter was sad to be left out of the boy’s club, but mostly I am too busy swooning over Mr. Darcy. The fact that he is a sweetheart who loves to bragging about his bromance? Icing
Says my Colin, about Geoffrey: “I would describe his as my geisha girl.”
And Geoffrey about Colin? “We do tend to refer to each other as Abelard and Eloise or Thelma and Louise.”
Like I said. Swoon.
