In photos, the friendly exes appear to be hugging and congratulating each other on their big wins. Then, as Jen walks away, her hand is on Brad’s chest and he is holding her wrist before she can leave. “They both embraced in a big long hug. They exchanged pleasantries and were visibly excited for each other,” an eyewitness to the exchanged shared EXCLUSIVELY with HollywoodLife.com. “The energy they both were showing each other was as electric as possible. You can tell their is a massive respect there. They didn’t stay long as they were whisked away back towards the show room and they both signed a SAG Awards sign that all the winners have signed.” See the pic below!
Brad took home the honor for Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of Cliff Booths in Once Upon A Time… In Hollywood, and cracked some jokes in his acceptance speech that had the whole crowd laughing along. He started off by revealing he was going to add this award to his “Tinder profile,” and then sarcastically added that the part “was really difficult to play.” “Let’s be honest, it was a difficult part… guy who gets high, takes his shirt off and doesn’t get along with his wife,” Brad said before pausing to laugh to himself, which got the whole crowd laughing for about 20 seconds. Of course, the cameraman panned to Jennifer, who giggled and clapped along in the crowd.
Right after Brad, Jennifer was awarded Best Female Actor in a Drama Series for her portrayal in The Morning Show. While Brad wasn’t in the crowd, he was caught backstage watching his ex-wife on a prompter and was even seen saying “Oh wow,” as she tearfully accepted her first SAG since Best Ensemble for Friends in 1996. While Jen didn’t acknowledge her ex in her speech, she appeared super happy to see him backstage after her major win!
