Two British stars and an American celebrity walk into an awards ceremony. They take a selfie. The internet erupts with outpourings of joy. The famous faces in question are Harry Potter writer J.K. Rowling, Fantastic Beasts actor Eddie Redmayne, and La La Land star Emma Stone—and the awards ceremony was the BAFTAs. The resulting selfie is a pure moment of joy and happenstance, shared by Rowling to her Twitter in a break from her avid political activism on the platform.
The silver lining of awards season is this chance for celebrities to hobnob in unexpected groups, while the rest of us dream of the conversations, mutual admiration, and potential collaborations that can come from the encounters. In this case, Redmayne and Rowling are already friendly—he plays main character Newt Scamander in her Fantastic Beasts franchise, after all—but Stone is a wild card.
Now that we know they all get along, the only question is if (and when) Stone will be joining the magical universe, too.
