Actresses Kate Winslet and Allison Janney shared a kiss during Sunday's Hollywood Film Awards after Winslet expressed her admiration for Janney during an acceptance speech.
It started when Winslet, who was accepting the Hollywood Actress Award for her performance in Woody Allen's latest film, Wonder Wheel, started praising her fellow actors being honored.
Janney, who was there to accept the Hollywood Supporting Actress Award for her performance in I, Tonya, was the first person that came to mind for Winslet. "Allison Janney is in this room. Allison, I know I don't really know you, but I know I just want to be you. I do," she gushed.
"Or just stroke you or something. I mean...I mean, we could always kiss, maybe?" she added.
"I just wanna be you, or maybe stroke you, or just kiss you," Kate Winslet says to Allison Janney, who then comes up on stage to smooch her.— Amy Kaufman (@Amy Kaufman)1509932024.0
Janney was clearly down with the idea, and she made her way up to the stage.
The audience applauded as Winslet gushed, "It's gonna happen! This is an exciting moment, isn't it?" before the pair locked lips.

as you can see I missed the actual kiss but here's the moment following— Rebecca Rubin (@Rebecca Rubin)1509932512.0
Winslet accepted the award from her Divergent co-star, Shailene Woodley, and Winslet said she was "very proud to be next to [Woodley] on this stage."
In Wonder Wheel, according to the Hollywood Reporter, Winslet plays "a beleaguered wife to a middle-aged carousel operator in the 1950s on Coney Island. She falls for a lifeguard, played by Justin Timberlake, but her life begins to unravel when her husband's estranged daughter shows up and begins pursuing him as well."
And while there may not be much love for Woody Allen at the moment, Winslet and Janney are certainly high on everyone's list. Especially after their epic kiss:
