"My Bae won a Golden Globe. Her first nomination and win", Curtis wrote.
For a long time, women have been pitted against each other. Now, they are openly becoming each other's cheerleaders. Jamie Lee Curtis celebrated Michelle Yeoh’s win at the Golden Globes. The actors were sitting next to each other at the 2023 Golden Globes on January 10, when it was announced that Yeoh had won best actress for her role in Everything Everywhere All at Once. As Yeoh covered her face with her hands, Curtis, 64, was ecstatic about the announcement throwing her hands in the air and cheering loudly for her friend and co-star Yeoh, reported TODAY.
This moment was appreciated on the internet and made its way to a T-shirt that Curtis proudly sported. In an Instagram post shared on January 14, Curtis posed for a mirror selfie wearing a white T-shirt printed with a photo of the moment with the words “FRIENDS SUPPORTING FRIENDS” on it. “I’m still stunned that a moment of natural exuberance and joy, became some sort of a symbol for women supporting other women,” Curtis wrote in the caption, appreciating the person behind the shirt, Erin Gallagher.
"@erin.gallag.her highlighted it with her gorgeous post and word anthem of support and somehow from Tuesday night to Friday night it became a T-shirt that was left outside my home with a dozen everything bagels from my @everythingeverywheremovie family," she continued. "I was COVID sleeping and today after my shower I proudly wear it." Curtis closed her post by writing that "#FRIENDSSUPPORTINGFRIENDS is a perfect squad goal for 2033. Thank you, Erin and all who are expanding it and amplifying the message CONGRATULATIONS @michelleyeoh_official YOU ARE EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE!"
During her Golden Globes speech, Yeoh spoke about the "amazing journey" and "incredible fight" it took for her to be there, reported PEOPLE. "But I think it's been worth it," she said. "I remember when I first came to Hollywood, it was a dream come true until I got here because look at this face. I came here and was told, 'You're a minority.' I said, 'I know that's not possible.'"
"Then along came the best gift, Everything Everywhere All At Once," Yeoh continued. And as the broadcast began to play her off, she joked, "Shut up, please. I can beat you up, okay? I'm dead serious." She ended her speech by saluting "all the shoulders that I stand on, all before me who look like me, and all who are going on this journey with me forward. Thank you for believing in me."
Curtis celebrated Yeoh's win on Instagram the day after the Golden Globes, as she posted a picture of their moment. In the caption, she wrote, "Once a cheerleader. ALWAYS a cheerleader. My Bae won a Golden Globe. Her first nomination and win." Yeoh did not forget to thank Curtis for the support, giving her a shoutout during her acceptance speech. As Yeoh spoke about the role that the filmmaking duo Daniels, Daniel Kwan, and Daniel Scheinert had created. She also spoke of their script, saying they “had the courage to write about a very ordinary immigrant, aging woman, mother, daughter. She was being audited by the IRS, played by the most amazing Jamie Lee Curtis.” “I love you,” Yeoh said to her co-star.
