Florals for spring? How original. A legendary trio reuniting onstage to present a 2024 Screen Actors Guild Award? Instantly iconic.

“The Devil Wears Prada” co-stars Anne Hathaway, Meryl Streep, and Emily Blunt, who is SAG Award and Oscar nominated for her supporting role in “Oppenheimer,” joined together 18 years after the 2006 film to present the award for Male Actor in a Comedy at the 2024 SAG Awards. The awards ceremony streamed live on Netflix Saturday, February 24.

Streep took the stage in a Prada dress to present the first award of the night, but comically stumbled when she reached the microphone.

“Two things,” Streep said. “I forgot my glasses, clearly. And the envelope.”

Those problems were quickly rectified when her former onscreen assistants Blunt and Hathaway joined her on stage. Blunt brought the envelope containing the winner (Jeremy Allen White for “The Bear”), while Hathaway brought Streep’s glasses. Fans of the movie might have noticed that Hathaway wore a cerulean blue dress, perhaps a reference Streep’s iconic speech in the movie where she informs Andy Sachs that she only wears blue because the fashion industry told her too.

This isn’t the first time that “The Devil Wears Prada” women have reunited: Hathaway and Blunt were seen at New York Fashion Week, with Hathaway even posing alongside Anna Wintour, who inspired Streep’s fictional editor-in-chief character Miranda Priestly. But any time the cast is seen together, it instantly prompts speculation about another film.

The conversation about the long-desired “Devil Wears Prada” sequel is a complicated one. Screenwriter Aline Brosh McKenna revealed to Variety in 2023 that any follow-up would have Hathaway’s Andy be single — AKA without the internet’s villain boyfriend Nate (Adrian Grenier).

Hathaway seemed to shut down sequel ideas in November 2022, though, admitting that while it’s “tempting” to think about, the film’s premise could only exist in a certain time period.

“I just think that movie was in a different era,” Hathaway said. “Now everything’s gone so digital and that movie is centered around the concept of producing a physical thing and it’s just, it’s just very different.”
