There are few Hollywood stars rising as quickly as Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s right now.
The Fleabag and Killing Eve creator scooped up the Emmys for best comedy series, best comedy writing and best leading comedy actress on Sunday night.
At one point she also presented an award on stage with another Hollywood favourite (and the winner of best leading comedy actor for his role in Barry), Bill Hader.
That is one talented duo.

There were also many, many calls for some kind of collaboration.
Okay now let Phoebe Waller-Bridge write a super witty and sneakily devastating romcom that she co-stars in with Bill Hader.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Bill Hader should have just had a conversation on stage for 3 hours and then at the end read out a list of the winners names and then we roll credits on a much superior version of this night

The good news? It sounds as though Bill Hader is definitely up for working with Waller-Bridge (although he’s also clearly aware of how in demand she is).
“I don’t know,” he said backstage, when asked when the two would work together. “I feel like I gotta wait in line.”
We’re pretty sure you’d get to cut ahead of most people, Bill.
