Emma Thompson Photobombs Lupita Nyong’o On The Red Carpet, A Perfect GIF Is Born

Emma Thompson Lupita Nyongo photobomb SAG red carpet 2014


Emma Thompson has been winning this award season one hilarious moment at a time. First she did an impeccable drunk sorority girl impression at the Golden Globes by throwing her shoes over her shoulder. Then she brought her A-game to not only the SAG Awards ceremony but also the red carpet.

Emma explained to Giuliana Rancic last night that she opted for flats this time around (they were still Louboutins, obvs), and thankfully the comfortable footwear allowed her to be even sillier. Case in point: her flawless photobomb of Lupita Nyong'o, which you can watch over and over again to your heart's content in the GIF above. And don't you worry, the photographers also captured the moment (that's the point of a photobomb, after all), and the result is just as amazing as you'd expect.

Emma didn't just photobomb and run, though. She also gave Lupita an adorable kiss on the cheek before running off to be amazing somewhere else. I don't know why she always looks like she's in a hurry, but I love it so much.

I know there's been a lot of talk about Lupita being the new “it girl,” but I'm ready to hand the title to Emma. She's been in the business for plenty of years now, but for some reason it's taken the Internet a little while to catch on to how great and GIF-able she is. In this day and age, if you're not GIF-able, who even are you? Now that we're all collectively obsessed with her, I can't wait to see what she pulls during the remainder of award season. She was snubbed at the Oscars, but fingers crossed she shows up anyway and gives the Academy a piece of her mind, preferably with a drink in her hand. After all, who needs an Oscar when you've got this fabulousness at the ready?
