Bless the producers this award season because it happened again: Jennifer Aniston's reaction to her ex-husband Brad Pitt's acceptance speech at the Screen Actors Guild Awards was diligently captured. This time, he made a joke about how playing "a guy who gets high, takes his shirt off and doesn’t get on with his wife" was a stretch. The camera focused right on Aniston's face and her knowing expression. Pitt, by the way, won the award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role. He started his speech by joking he should add that honor to his Tinder profile.

Aniston first went viral for her reactions during Pitt's Golden Globes award acceptance speech. She smirked when Pitt quipped, "I wanted to bring my mom [to the Globes] but I couldn’t because any woman I stand next to they say I’m dating." And that moment alone generated a lot of chatter on Twitter and headlines in the media.

Before award season started, Us Weekly reported that Pitt and Aniston still had a spark between them, even if their relationship is just platonic right now. “Brad and Jen have a wonderful connection that might seem flirtatious at times,” a source told the outlet in December. “They dig each other’s sense of humor and have an infectious energy when they’re together, but they insist things are purely platonic and nothing more than that.”

Pitt himself has been pretty public about the fact he and Aniston are cool these days. He spoke to Entertainment Tonight at the Golden Globes about how he'd be game to have a public reunion with her. "I'll run into Jen, she's a good friend," he said before making a joke: "The second most important reunion of her year? I understand," he added, clarifying, "That was a play on Friends. They were saying that [the show is rumored to have a revival in the works on HBO Max]."

Pitt and Aniston did meet up at CAA's Golden Globes after party. "They said hello very quickly," a source told E!. "Jen arrived after Brad. It was brief, but [they] were very cordial and friendly and seemed happy to be there. They approached each other once they saw each other inside and looked happy as they started to hug and say hello. Jen whispered something to Brad, but it wasn't in an affectionate way. They both didn't seem like they wanted to make a big deal about being together in the same room although it was a private party. They were trying to be low-key. Brad left shortly after and didn't stay at the party long."
