Aniston and Pitt were the couple in the early 2000s. They ended their marriage in 2005, and while it seems like the couple is over it, Twitter users sure aren’t.
There are a few moments, in particular, that are making Twitter users hope that the couple is back together. (They aren’t.)
At the event, Aniston won an award for her role in The Morning Show. During her acceptance speech, Pitt watched from backstage and was reportedly smiling as she spoke.
“Caught this pretty cool moment when Brad stopped and watched Jen win her SAG Award, he couldn’t stop smiling,” E! host Jason Kennedy wrote on Twitter along with a video.

And then there’s a part during Pitt’s speech. As Pitt accepted his award for his part in Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, he made a joke and Aniston was seen laughing and clapping at the quip.

But what’s really breaking brains are a couple of photographs of Aniston and Pitt sharing a friendly moment at the awards show. One shows them laughing together, and the other shows him holding her hand as she walks away.

When the pictures made their way onto Twitter, people began freaking out. Their names have been trending overnight.
“As someone who studied psychology for two days before quitting for criminology, I know this means he loves her and regrets everything,” Twitter user @BrishanRae jokingly wrote alongside a zoomed-in picture of Pitt’s and Aniston’s hands.

So while Sunday night was a career-defining moment for both of the actors, people were really only interested in the possibility of a romantic reunion.
“Look. If I can get My Chemical Romance and the Jonas Brothers back together, I can definitely get Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston back together,” musician Mark Hoppus wrote on Twitter. “2020 is the year I’m gonna make it happen.”
Twitter users can only hope.
