Derry Girls’ Nicola Coughlan live-tweeting her way through Elton John’s Oscars party is truly all of us

Nicola Coughlan with Jonathan Van Ness

Derry Girls star and flawless LGBT+ ally Nicola Coughlan had the time of her life at Elton John’s Oscars party, and fortunately for us she live-tweeted the whole thing.

Coughlan’s stunning ascent from rising Irish star to burgeoning Hollywood royalty was cemented on Sunday, February 9, when she bagged an invite to Elton John’s Oscars viewing party.

The actor attended as a guest of Queer Eye‘s Jonathan Van Ness, who she’s previously called her “soul sister”.

Stomping into the venue in a floaty floral print dress, Coughlan was truly each and every one of us.

As Nicola Coughlan kindly pointed out, it’s actually quite offensive just how cute she looked posing with Van Ness.

You know how the best lighting for selfies is always in the nightclub toilets? Imagine that with wind machines, and you’ve got Elton John’s Oscar party.

Everybody’s favourite ‘wee lesbian’ showed that she’s still a woman of the people while rubbing shoulders with Jane Fonda, Skylar Astin and Donatella Versace.

Understandably, Coughlan lost at it seeing Elton John perform just 20 feet away from her.

‘It was hilarious I was even there,” she said, comparing herself to ‘your elderly auntie at a wedding – delighted to be invited and absolutely thrilled to get the free dinner’. A queen.

To cap off the trip, Nicola Coughlan achieved what most of us can only dream of: getting upgraded to business class, free champagne and all.

Honestly, were she not such a pure and perfect ally, we’d absolutely hate her.
