For many celebrities, this year’s Golden Globes ceremony was a chance to party with old friends.

For Mark Hamill, it was a chance to have a first-time family reunion.

Although Mark played Luke Skywalker in six Star Wars films, none of them included Natalie Portman, who played his character’s mum, Padme Amilada, in the prequel trilogy: The Phantom Menace, Attack Of The Clones and Revenge Of The Sith.

As a result, Mark and Natalie had never officially met in any capacity — until last night’s awards show.

Naturally, a photo was taken, and Mark gleefully posted it on X, formerly Twitter, with a fitting caption.

The photo took the internet — pardon the pun — by force.

And, yes, people were amused.
