Mariska looked stunning in a black sequin gown with a thigh-high slit on the Emmys carpet. Her hair was styled in glamorous waves for TV’s biggest night. Christopher was on her arm in a dashing tuxedo.
Naturally, these best friends had a blast on the Emmys carpet. Christopher stepped out onto the carpet solo before allowing Mariska to make her grand entrance. They sweetly shared laughs and posed for photos together. Mariska and Christopher sat side-by-side at their table for the ceremony.
During the show, Mariska and Chris presented the award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series. They had a fun bit as they presented when someone “stole” an Emmy. They successfully got the Emmy, and Chris was ready to hand it over to Mariska when she quipped, “Oh, I’m good. I have two.”
Mariska and Christopher were asked by E! carpet correspondent Loni Love about whether or not Benson and Stabler will ever get together. The duo didn’t confirm anything, but they also didn’t deny it either. But there’s one thing you can’t deny — their chemistry!
These two have been friends for over 25 years, and their chemistry remains effortless. “It’s effortless, and it’s weird, and I always look at it as some sort of gift,” Mariska told PEOPLE & EW’s Red Carpet pre-show. “So much of it has to do with our shared sense of humor, shared perspective, our now history.”
Two days before the Emmys, Christopher posted a photo of himself with Mariska as they headed out on a plane to Los Angeles. “Talkin Emmy stuff with random lady. We became friends,” Christopher captioned the Instagram photo.
