Frances McDormand and Chloe Kim Need to Snowboard Together ASAP
The actress mentioned the 17-year-old gold medalist in her Best Actress acceptance speech.
Last night, Frances McDormand won an Oscar for Best Actress for her incredible performance in Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri. The moment was so surreal that McDormand compared it to winning an Olympic medal.
"I think this is what Chloe Kim must have felt like after landing back-to-back 1080s in the Olympic halfpipe. Did you see that? Okay, that's what it feels like," McDormand said on stage.
Understandably, Kim, who just became the youngest woman to win a gold medal in the halfpipe at the 2018 Pyeongchang Games, was beyond flattered by the shout-out and took to Twitter to share her appreciation.
"I am shook [right now] like what?" she wrote followed by another tweet saying: "Hey Frances let's go snowboarding sometime."
While McDormand has yet to respond, we're pretty sure she'll take Kim up on that. (I mean, who wouldn't?!)
McDormand continued her speech by asking every woman nominated that night to stand in the audience and be applauded. "If I may be so honored to have all the female nominees in every category stand with me in this room tonight, the actors, the filmmakers, the producers, the directors, the writers, the cinematographer, the composers, the songwriters, the designers," she said, adding that industry executives should take real, actual meetings with these leading ladies for future projects because their talent deserves to be noticed.
Way to go, Frances. What an appropriate cap to the 2018 awards season.
