Recognised with a golden GOAT (“Greatest of All Time,”) and popcorn trophy, making their kiss the single most awarded kiss in cinema history.
As a special thanks, they recreated their famous kiss, with a COVID-19 twist. Watch the kiss below:
In accepting the award, Selma said “I think the reason the kiss has resonated with people for so long is not just for the initial shock value, but because it was a catalyst for so many young people to help them realize certain aspects of their sexuality and help make people comfortable to be who they really are.”
Sarah added that “it also presented a paradigm shift to a new dynamic toward acceptance in pop culture…And also, it was super hot.”
In her post on instagram, Selma Blairs says:”Looking back 20 years ago… A kiss. Between two young actresses. On screen. In a mainstream teen movie. In 2000. It was a sweet and delicious kiss for my character, Cecile. And she wanted more. And I must say it was a really good kiss.
Selma continues, “What feels so delicious to me now is how it isn’t shocking in 2020. It stands for a shift in thinking. “
