Blink and you'd miss it: Jennifer Lawrence and Nicholas Hoult's Golden Globes kiss
What a difference a year makes. This time last award's season we all had our fingers and toes crossed that Silver Linings Playbook co-stars Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper were going to get together for realz, and yet here we are the morning after the Golden Globes and we're quite literally glowing at the cuteness of J-Law smooching her not-so-secret boyfriend Nicholas Hoult.

When the 23-year-old won her best actress Oscar at the Academy Awards in 2013, naturally it was blue-eyed dreamboat Bradders that she turned to for that all important congratulatory embrace, but then the 39-year-old uber hunk spent the rest of the year making goo goo eyes at Brit beauty Suki Waterhouse in Hawaii and all our illusions of a Cooper-Lawrence wedding were shattered.

Thankfully it didn't take long before everyone's favourite BFF Jennifer - just ask Taylor Swift - was spotted 'hanging out' with her old flame and X-Men co-star - and former Skins alumni - Nicholas Hoult. The pair even rounded off their reunion by spending New Year's Eve together at an English country pub. That's right; J-Law has sidestepped Hollywood for Hampshire. It. Must. Be. Love.
So while Jennifer and Bradley may have reunited for their latest flick American Hustle - for which the actress bagged her second Golden Globe - and have Depression-era drama Serena on the horizon it appears that - for now at least - they remain firmly in the friend zone. If you're disappointed, take a look back at our favourite moments of the pals at last year's Oscars ceremony.
As usual the most quotable actress in La La Land delivered a corker of an acceptance speech last night. So endearing was it that she talked herself out of ever doing another one by telling the audience, “I’m sorry I’m shaking so much! Don’t ever do this again. It’s so scary!” Something tells us that despite her complaints, J-Law might be up on that podium again before the season ends.
