Kate Winslet and Allison Janney shared a brief kiss on the lips onstage at the Hollywood Film Awards on Sunday night.


Winslet was accepting an award for her performance in Woody Allen‘s Wonder Wheel when she took a moment to congratulate her contemporaries. “What a great room this is to be in tonight, filled with so many achievements and such powerful creativity, I’m deeply appreciative of this acknowledgment in the time when voices of artists play such an important role in storytelling and push boundaries and that feel necessary today more than ever before I think,” she began.

“I want to thank and applaud my fellow actors being honored here this evening for your passionate dedication and your brilliant work. Allison Janney is in this room. Allison, I know I don’t really know you, but I just want to be you. I do, or just stroke you or something,” Winslet said. “I mean, we could always kiss, maybe?”

Janney, who took home an award for supporting actress in I, Tonya, was visibly flattered and jumped at the opportunity. “Oh, it’s going to happen! This is an exciting moment, isn’t it?” the latter said before Janney hopped on stage and planted a quick kiss on Winslet’s lips.

“I love you,” Winslet said. “Now I’m a little bit breathless.”
