We don't believe in ships. Especially not one that sailed two decades ago and sank five years after. I mean, they did make this incredible blond star power couple in the late '90s/early '00s fresh off Friends, but still. And we did see her face during his acceptance speech for Best Male Actor in a Supporting Role at the award event on Monday, and he did stop backstage to watch hers for Best Female Actor in a Drama Series. But no, ships don't exist. This moment could go down in history. This could be the biggest reboot of 2020. But no, ships don't exist.
While the Internet is calling in on body language experts, dividing themselves between telling us we shouldn't project our feelings on them and fuelling the rumours, we all have photographer Emma McIntyre to thank for capturing this very photo-worthy moment between Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston. The truth is, it really doesn't matter whether you ship this celebrity couple or not. What matters are the memes.

ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE THIS YEAR
If Brad and Jen can reunite, and Harry and Meghan can leave the Royals, you can do anything in 2020.

BUT… BRAD AND JEN!
Everyone: There are too many reboots and sequels these days. People are too saturated with nostalgia.
Also Everyone: BRAD AND JEN!!!!

THE IMPORTANT QUESTION
Me: Brad and Jen are mature adults who can be friends without the world freaking out every time they're in the same room together ok?
Me after seeing The Photo: do we call them Braniston or Anipitt
