The cameras panned to the Morning Show star and nominee throughout Pitt's acceptance speech, and Aniston's reaction — hands clasped, teary eyes, big smile — has already gone viral.
It was so good that people barely even noticed Beyoncé in the same shot, and it takes a lot to outshine Bey.
Of course, Pitt and Aniston were married from 2000 to 2005 and remain one of the tabloids' favourite Hollywood couples. There are rumours that they are back together after Aniston ended her marriage to Justin Theroux and Pitt ended his to Angelina Jolie, though Aniston and Pitt maintain that they are just good friends.
Aniston seemed particularly pleased with her ex's speech when he made a crack about wanting to bring his mother as his date to the awards show, but "couldn't because every woman I stand next to, they say I'm dating and it'd just be awkward."
Earlier in the night, a reporter asked Pitt about the potential for a run-in with Aniston on the red carpet for a photo op. "I'll run into Jen, she's a good friend," he said. Pitt then joked about it being the second most important reunion of her year.

Jennifer Aniston laughed at Brad Pitt's Titanic joke, she smiled when he talked about his parents, her former in-laws and smiled multiple times. 2020 and I'm sitting here still believing there's a chance #GoldenGlobes pic.twitter.com/l0hzbf4TQ1— Lucy on the Ground (@lucyontheg) January 6, 2020

Thank you to the camera person who panned to Jennifer Aniston during this Brad Pitt line: "I wanted to bring my mom but I couldn't because any woman I stand next to, they say I'm dating." #GoldenGlobes pic.twitter.com/EMIX7V4xde— Nora Dominick (@noradominick) January 6, 2020
Jennifer Aniston giving an approving smirk while Reese Witherspoon looking disgusted at Brad Pitt's #GoldenGlobes speech perfectly encapsulates every friendship after a guy has cheated. Always going for that second chance while the bff disapproves!! pic.twitter.com/veMKLPtqRw— Francesca Bacardi (@OriginalFresca) January 6, 2020
