Amy Schumer and Selena Gomez just shared the sweetest on-stage bonding moment
Amy Schumer and Selena Gomez just gave us brand new squad goals at last night’s Hollywood Film Awards ceremony.
Held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, Amy was presented the Hollywood Comedy Award (no shocker there!) by none other than Selena. If you caught yourself thinking, Hmm, I thought Jennifer Lawrence would be the one presenting the award?, you’re not alone; after all, they’re pretty much besties forever. And that’s exactly what Selena noted nervously when presenting the award, recognizing that she may have been a second choice for Amy.
“Basically what I’m saying is, I am really happy that Jennifer Lawrence wasn’t able to do this tonight,” she told Amy from the stage. “Because I love you!”
Boom. Hilarity. Then Selena got a little serious (but too serious):
Naturally, when Amy got on stage to accept the award, she had to make a few jokes first, because duh, it’s Amy accepting a comedy award. “It’s great to be here on this set of a Bollywood musical,” she said, poking fun at the decorations of the hotel. “Girls of my size don’t usually get to work on those sets and it’s an honor.”
But then, she couldn’t help but be totally charmed by Selena. “I didn’t ask Jen—Selena, you’re my first choice,” she said, effectively making our hearts burst.
Amy then started to get uncharacteristically mushy and it was adorable. “There are so many amazing women like Selena, who’s like, ‘You know what? I’m going to be confident and I’m going to live to my potential and be really proud of my work and not fit into the mold that is so dated that we’ve been supposed to fit in the whole time,’” Amy told the crowd. Told you: squad goals.
“And I’m really proud to be someone who is going to continue doing work to . . .” she said before trailing off, because she forgot her lines, according to Daily Mail. Hey, it happens to everyone. But somehow, she managed to make it hilarious (cut to Amy Poehler giggling in the audience): “What the f*ck am I talking about?” she concluded. “Like shut up! Amy, who cares?”
Amy also Instagrammed about Selena afterwards, calling her an “angel”:
So now there’s a whole new friendship that’s making us swoon: Amy and Selena. Along with Jen, we have no doubt they’ll make a totally badass trio.
