Ten years later and still the best of friends, working on their careers side by side.?

Side note: can we talk about how they’re aging backwards?

Bromance is an understatement.

This year they enjoyed the Golden Globes together from beginning to end, starting with their carpool ride to the red carpet.?


Best carpool selfie of 2017, hands down!

From there, some of their most precious moments at the Golden Globes were caught on camera.?


If this doesn’t make your heart melt, I don’t know what will.

There were enough pictures of this pair to create a beautiful collage.


Definitely some high-quality art.??

The morning after the Golden Globes, actor Gina Rodriguez gave these two a special shoutout on Instagram and it was so inspiring.

To have both Diego Luna and Gael Garcia Bernal is almost an overload on #MovementMondays and for many these two are not new news. I met them both in the film Y Tu Mama Tambien and I just fell in love. Diego Luna, a Mexican actor, producer and director and star of the most recent Star Wars Rogue One. Gael Garcia Bernal is a Mexican film actor, director, and producer. He and Diego Luna founded Canana Films in Mexico City. He is mostly known for his performances in the films Bad Education, The Motorcycle Diaries, and Babel, and in Amazon Studios' web television series Mozart in the Jungle. I can list their credentials and this post would be a mile long but I will leave it to you to see their incredible work because you should. Research and watch and support and uplift because these two have and continue to do so much for the community and humanity. Last night at the globes Diego Luna was poised and bilingual. It made my heart glow. I love Mondays for this reason, I get to share the work of those I love and admire and you can do the same. Join the movement. Post those that inspire you and represent you in a way that makes you know you are capable of anything! #MovementMondays

She couldn’t have chosen a better pair to post about for her hashtag #MovementMondays. ??

But Gina wasn’t the only one that was happy about Diego Luna and Gael García Bernal standing side by side at the Golden Globes.


And I’m sure anyone would be more than thrilled to be the third wheel on their date.

Thousands of people on Twitter and Instagram are expressing how blessed they feel by the duo’s presence.✨


Now imagine seeing them together in person.??

Their fans really see them as precious angels on Earth.

my sweet, beautiful angels. #diegoluna #gaelgarciabernal

Flower crowns and floating hearts on fleek.

And many are thrilled about how much they’re accomplishing as Latinos in the film industry.??


And something tells us they’re just getting started.

They are the original bromance, and ultimate friendship goals.❤️


So if you find a friend like Diego Luna and Gael García Bernal, hold on tight to them and never let go. Because friends who work together, motivate, inspire and challenge one another, are the best friends anyone could have.

Here's Why Sofia Vergara's Golden Globes Joke Rubbed People The Wrong Way

Here’s Why Sofia Vergara’s Golden Globes Joke Rubbed People The Wrong Way

When does self-deprecation cross the line and become self-degradation? We’re asking ourselves that question after Sofia Vergara’s recent appearance at the 2017 Golden Globes.

When Vergara took the stage Sunday night, she proceeded to perform a bit that induced lots of eye-rolls on social media. Here’s what the highest-paid actress on TV said:

“The Hollywood Foreign Press Association has an anal tradition. I didn’t mean — they have an anus tradition. They have a tradition that they do every year of choosing a second-generation performer to assist in the presentation of the awards.”


She meant to say “annual.” Get it?

In a vacuum, the joke isn’t a big deal. Vergara is Colombian and English is her second language. Kinda makes sense, right? Except the English-is-my-second-language-so-I’m-going-to-‘hilariously’-screw-up-the-pronunciation-of-several-words-because-I-don’t-know-any-better-joke isn’t something completely unique to Vergara’s personal story. For those who have been following Latinx performers in Hollywood for decades, it’s pretty much the go-to joke for writers dealing with foreigners who have an accent — especially those from Latin America. Even the YouTube video embedded above is titled “Funny Golden Globes Blooper” because the person who uploaded it apparently couldn’t fathom Vergara being in on the joke.

Vergara didn’t write the bit, but she agreed to do it. Why? Presumably, Vergara felt it was a joke that could just as well been delivered by Gloria Delgado-Pritchett, the character she plays on “Modern Family.” On the show, Delgado-Pritchett is a trophy wife who often loses things in translation. But if you watch enough episodes of the show, it becomes clear her character has more depth that what you see on the surface.

That’s where people take issue with the bit Vergara performed. She’s not Gloria Delgado-Pritchett, but it appears she’s repeatedly expected to play that role in real life. When Vergara must constantly deliver jokes about her accent — or her appearance — we only get to see a caricature of a Latina. In real life, Vergara is an immigrant. For many years, she was a single mother. She’s a cancer survivor. She’s been nominated for four Emmys and currently reigns as the highest-paid actress on TV. She’s more than a “funny” accent.

Just a few days ago, a young Latina named Perla Nation shared a story about her father, who was inspired by Diego Luna’s role in Rogue One. Luna, who plays a rebel intelligence officer named Cassian Andor, kept his Mexican accent for the role. Nation said it made her father proud to see someone with an accent just like his starring in a major motion picture. The story went viral.


For many, it seemed like a turning point in how Hollywood could represent someone with an accent. It felt like progress. Vergara’s joke at the Golden Globes felt like a step back.
