In short, last year's show received many angry and indignant protests from fans who felt that they and their show had been scorned, and clearly were a scary bunch. This year, both Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles walked the red carpet along with some very big stars, including Robert Downey Jr, Emma Watson, and Jennifer Lawrence, and two Supernatural stars even presented an award. For a dedicated fan like me, it was more than gratifying to see “our boys” in the midst of such noteworthy names.
And quite an appearance they made, too; I bet none of your favorite co-stars color coordinated their attire. Jensen and Jared play brothers on screen, and it’s evident that spills over into real life. Jensen Ackles’ sported a suit I’ve heard described as “maroon,” “aubergine,” and “oxblood,” and it was not a single shade different from costar Jared Padalecki’s tie.
Both actors attended with their beautiful wives; Jensen was accompanied by Danneel Ackles, who “debuted her baby bump” (Don’t ask me. I don’t know why baby bumps need debuts; they’re not teenage girls, after all!) and looked like a supermodel doing it. Jared Padalecki was accompanied by former Supernatural costar and now wife Genevieve Padalecki, who, true to her role as Ruby, appeared in a dress of the same shade.
Both ladies were striking and brought smiles to the faces of “our boys.” All in all, it was a parade of stunning looks and joy. And that’s a pretty good thing, because we need some happiness in our lives right now: Supernatural’s next episode airs Wednesday, and I foresee pain. Lots of pain. Supernatural is a sadistic show, and I’m sure I’ll be feeling it, but in the meantime, I’m full of joy and pride at the little show that could.
