I have a rom-com meet-cute pitch I would like to make Hollywood producers: a respected and beloved actress finds herself in an awards-bait movie and has to spend three months doing the full Oscar season. She keeps finding herself nominated alongside the same actors, directors and producers, because that’s legit what happens. One of those people nominated for everything? A charming young man. Their eyes meet at the Golden Globes. They party together at an industry screening. They fall in love during an Oscar panel discussion. By the Oscar luncheon, they’re a couple. They thank each other on stage as they collect their Oscars.
That would be a cute movie, right? Well, that very thing is happening with Glenn Close and Timothee Chalamet. They seemed to have met at the Globes, and by the Critics Choice Awards, they were already posing for photos together, with their arms wrapped around one another. They are also Instagram-official, like all the coolest couples (see below). Move the f–k over, John Krasinski and Emily Blunt. Stanning Glenothee is my new religion.
So what will happen long-term for my favorite Oscar-power couple? I don’t know. Glenn is 71 years young and she’s quickly becoming the… frontrunner (??) in the Best Actress race for her performance in The Wife. Timothee, 23, is all but guaranteed his second Oscar nomination in as many years for Beautiful Boy. Few think he’ll win, which might be their undoing. He will be proud of Glenn if and when she wins, but he’ll also be jealous, and it will tear them apart.
