Jennifer Aniston, the star of the iconic sitcom Friends, made her fans nostalgic at the 81st Golden Globe Awards, as she reunited with her on-screen sisters Reese Witherspoon and Christina Applegate. The trio, who played Rachel, Jill, and Amy Green on the show, were all nominated for their roles in The Morning Show and Dead to Me, respectively. They also presented together on stage and shared some hugs and laughs backstage.

Aniston, who won her first and only Golden Globe in 2003 for playing Rachel, was nominated for best actress in a drama series for her role as Alex Levy, a morning show anchor who faces a scandal and a power struggle. Witherspoon, who played her younger sister Jill in six episodes of Friends, was also nominated in the same category for her role as Bradley Jackson, a reporter who joins Alex’s show. Applegate, who played their spoiled and selfish sister Amy in two episodes of Friends, was nominated for best actress in a comedy series for her role as Jen Harding, a widow who befriends a woman with a dark secret.

The three actresses, who have remained friends over the years, showed their support and love for each other at the ceremony and also made some jokes about their Friends history. When they presented the award for Best Actor in a Comedy Series, Witherspoon said, “We’re not just friends on TV, we’re friends in real life.” Aniston added, “And we’re sisters.” Applegate quipped, “Well, some of us are sisters.” The audience laughed and cheered, as they remembered the hilarious and dramatic scenes between the Green sisters on Friends.

The reunion also sparked some hopes and excitement for the upcoming Friends reunion special, which is set to air on HBO Max in 2024. The special will feature the original cast of Aniston, Witherspoon, Applegate, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, and David Schwimmer, as they revisit the sets, share memories, and celebrate the 30th anniversary of the show. Aniston recently revealed that the reunion was bittersweet for the cast, as they felt nostalgic and emotional about their time together

However, the night was not all smiles and roses for the Green sisters, as none of them won their categories. Aniston and Witherspoon lost to Olivia Colman for her role as Queen Elizabeth II in The Crown, while Applegate lost to Phoebe Waller-Bridge for her role as Fleabag in Fleabag. The winners praised their fellow nominees in their acceptance speeches and expressed their admiration and gratitude for their work.

Despite the losses, the Green sisters proved that they are still winners in the hearts of their fans, who took to social media to express their delight and nostalgia over their reunion. Many fans posted photos and videos of the trio and commented on how they have not aged a day since their Friends days. Some fans also shared their favorite moments and quotes from the show and thanked the actresses for making them laugh and cry.
