Jenna Ortega and Aubrey Plaza’s SAG Awards chemistry has sent the internet into a tailspin

Jenna Ortega and Aubrey Plaza teamed up to present at the SAG Awards last night (26 February), and their chemistry has fans begging Hollywood for a movie.

Taking to the stage to present the Best Male Actor in a TV Movie or Miniseries award together, it became immediately obvious that the pair have the exact same brooding, impassive energy.

“I don’t know why they paired us up together,” said The White Lotus star Plaza, as Ortega surveyed the room with a stone-cold expression. 

“I know, we have nothing in common,” the Wednesday actress replied, managing to deliver the line without a hint of irony. Speaking in unison, the duo continued: “We should find the people who did this and curse their families and watch as misoftune follows their bloodline for the next seven generations.”

“Ok, I see it now,” Plaza said, receiving one of the evening’s biggest laughs from the star-studded audience.

At home, the audience reaction was equally unanimous: when is Hollywood going to case these two icons in a hilarious but murderous TV series?

“See, now this is just simply superb,” one person wrote on social media. “If every studio isn’t trying to write something for these two together right now then they have f****d up.”

“Cast them together now,” and “they need to do a series together” were the two main, undivided opinions on the Internet, but some fans were a little more specific in what they wanted to see the pair star in.

“Them in a revenge movie would be crazy,” one person said, while another demanded: “Give me a movie with these two, Brie Larson and Natasha Lyonne and we got blockbuster gold.”

“Give me a movie with them and Elizabeth Olsen,” another ordered, while one fan suggested Jenna Ortega and Aubrey Plaza should take over from Jimmy Kimmel as this year’s Oscar hosts.

Others were simply going wild for how the pair looked on stage together, in all their deadpan and frankly gay glory.

“I’ve never felt more represented (Latinx, queer, monotone and cursing a family for generations),” shared one fan.

“I have a type and I’m not afraid to say it,” wrote another.

The SAG Awards saw Everything Everywhere All At Once break the record for the highest number of wins in one night at the ceremony, with the film’s lead actress Michelle Yeoh becoming the first Asian winner in the Female Actor in a Leading Role category.
