Help Movieline Caption The Collision of Twilight and the Golden Girls at the People's Choice Awards
Let's be honest: Nobody watches the People's Choice Awards for the actual awards. As awards season proper kicks off it's a populist popularity contest, a loose warm-up to this weekend's Golden Globes, a pit stop on the tour of red carpet photo ops for celebrities and TV stars and actors with upcoming movies to pimp. But events like this give us lovely little gifts, random social snapshots that peek behind the curtain of celebrity. Last night they gave us Hunger Games tingles. Cute coupledom. And, perhaps best of all, Robert Pattinson having a ball with Betty White.
Who was the genius People's Choice Awards planner that seated Pattinson next to the erstwhile Golden Girl in the front row? What did the Twilight star and the bubbly octogenarian have to talk about during commercial breaks? (Perhaps this?) Could the casualwear-clad Pattinson have looked any more like a kid tagging along with his grandma to a fancy dinner for grownups? WHAT DID BETTY THINK OF RPATTZ'S NEW HAIRCUT??
I kid, I kid. It's the single most adorable photo to come from last night and I love thinking that the two became instant besties and exchanged cell numbers on the spot. This stuff doesn't happen at the Oscars, folks. Help me celebrate this moment in time with your captioning skills in the comments below!
