Open Post: Hosted By The Mini “Romy And Michele” Reunion At The SAG Awards

February 28, 2022 / Posted by:

Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion came out in 1997. And the titular high school reunion took place ten years after graduation, but it’s been 25 years since that movie was released and blessed us with a lifetime’s worth of quotes and looks, so it was high time these two got together for another reunion. And luckily for us, it happened at last night’s SAG Awards!

Mira Sorvino, aka Romy White, and Lisa Kudrow, aka Michele Weinberger, showed up in some signature R&MHSR complimentary pink and blue formal ensembles to present the award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series, which went to Ted Lasso. But sorry Ted Lasso, your thunder was stolen by Romy and Michele showing up and injecting the ceremony with a strong dose of ditzy pizazz and overly-confident charm. They ever remembered to bring Post-its, which was truly thoughtful of them. If I were in the same position, and someone offered me a critical prop for a comedy bit, I’d have to look into my purse first and see if there was enough room (that ceremony is long, and I want to make sure I have enough snacks). via People:

Stepping on stage to present the award for outstanding ensemble in comedy series – with Cyndi Lauper’s “Time After Time” playing, in tribute to a classic moment from the film – Kudrow and Sorvino donned matching suits in hot pink for Kudrow and electric blue for Sorvino, in a nod to their characters’ outfits at their high school reunion.

“You look cute,” Sorvino, 54, told Kudrow.

“I know, thanks. So do you, of course,” her costar, 58, replied. “Do you think this is the cutest anyone’s ever looked an awards show?”

They also threw it all the way back and busted out the choreographed dance that many have tried and failed to recreate (me, I am many).

This isn’t a true Romy and Michele reunion, obviously because the SAG Awards can’t dedicate hours to a bit, and they were just there to present an award. But still, I would not be a critical thinker if I didn’t mention some major oversights. First of all, would the reason Romy and Michele wear an outfit with a 0% feather or faux fur trim ratio? I am not sure. Second, that appearance is nothing if they were simply escorted off stage by a SAG Award stage wrangler at the end of their award presentation, where they both called an Uber to take them home. A true Romy and Michele reunion would have had them prancing off down the aisle of the Barker Hangar at the Santa Monica Airport to Sandy Frink waiting on stand-by with a glamorous helicopter.
