If there’s one person who can singlehandedly save every award show, it’s America’s sweetheart, Jason Momoa. Whether he’s simply playing with his own hair, rocking a scrunchie, or just being a hunky muscular dude, he can truly turn even the most cringeworthy ceremony into a monumental night. And he didn’t disappoint at the 2020 Golden Globe Awards.
One person even pointed out that this is the dude equivalent of taking your bra off at the end of a stressful day, which just makes it even more legendary.
You have to stan this beautiful, VSCO girl of a man.
As if the simple existence of his muscles wasn’t enough, it appears that Jason only took his blazer off to give it to his chilly wife, Lisa Bonet. I’m not crying! You’re crying!
Unfortunately, he did not present in said tank top, keeping the velvety blazer for that moment, and this is a disappointment that will haunt me for the rest of my life.
But, to be honest, his full outfit (tight black tank + buttery smooth blazer is pretty incredible, too. So I really don’t think we have anything to complain about, blazer, no blazer, no shirt, snowsuit, whatevs. Thank you for existing, Jason.
