Enemies to Besties???

Kieran Culkin beat the sh*t out of me. – Pedro Pascal

In boy-world, hurling insults at each other is just another form of bonding, and this award season, Pedro Pascal and Kieran Culkin might have risen to bestie status.

At the Golden Globes earlier this month, the Succession actor and The Last of Us actor were both nominated in the category Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Drama. Kieran Culkin ended up taking home the award for his role as Roman Roy on Succession and made celebrity news when, during his acceptance speech, he taunted Pascal saying, “Suck it, Pedro. I’m sorry,” he said, holding his statue up to Pascal. “Mine!”

Pascal let out a laugh and then pouted his lower lip, expressing his hurt little heart (God, I love him).

However, at the 2024 Emmy Awards, Pedro Pascal seemed to get the last laugh. Before announcing the winner for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series, Pascal addressed the audience and said he wanted to “make this about me.” Pascal then mentioned his recent shoulder injury and playfully accused Culkin of being responsible.

“I think tonight is a perfect time to tell everyone that Kieran Culkin beat the sh*t out of me,” he said, looking at Culkin.


Pascal’s statement was followed by a camera pan to Culkin, who was absolutely stone-faced. However, after a few moments, he couldn’t contain his laughter. And neither could anyone else. Despite not being a professional comedian, Culkin’s comedic timing easily surpassed all of the previous hosts we’ve had this award season. Jo Koy oughta call him up for some lessons.


In all honesty, these two should just kiss and make up. Pascal has already been the subject of celebrity rumors after being seen smooching with Willem Dafoe. So why not Culkin as well? Plus, I have a feeling he’s “negging” Pascal (lowering someone’s self-esteem in order to gain their romantic attention). **I’M JOKING**

Jokes and personal fantasies aside, it’s undeniable that Pedro Pascal and Kieran Culkin have a natural chemistry. It has been the most enjoyable aspect of this award season so far. Hopefully, this unexpected friendship will lead to future collaborations between them. A little rom-com enemies-to-besties moment, perhaps?

I’ll keep an eye on these two for y’all and be back to report when they’re inevitably spotted skipping to Sunday brunch together.
