Just A Casual Reminder That Charlie Brooker And Konnie Huq's Love Conquers All

They were both there at the Emmys last night.

Posted on

Charlie Brooker – who's gone from PC Zone magazine writer to Netflix writer and showrunner, via stints as a Guardian columnist, a BBC Four presenter, and a Channel 4 drama writer – is now also a double Emmy winner for Black Mirror's "San Junipero".

He has had a remarkable career, and that's without mentioning Nathan Barley, TVGoHome, or Oink!

He's also partner to Konnie Huq, presenter, podcast host, and without a doubt the holy macaroni goddamn best Blue Peter presenter of all time NO QUESTION.

She also wrote an episode of Black Mirror with Brooker.

Brooker and Huq have been married for seven years and have two children. I don't know why, but there's something about their relationship that makes me just have butterfly FEELINGS whenever I see them together.

Maybe it's something to do with the fact that they both come from polar opposites of television, or the fact that Konnie Huq once appeared on Brooker's Screenwipe in a hilarious skit called "Konnie's Great British Wee".

I especially have feelings when I see tweets like this:

Well, at last night's Emmys, when Brooker won Outstanding Writer for "San Junipero", we all saw Konnie kiss Brooker and then try to throw in a quick hug.

She was credited in Brooker's speech: "And finally, my wife Konnie who is down there, who I love very much."

The highlight of the Emmys was of course TV legend Konnie Huq receiving a shout out from her husband

KONNIE HUQ GETTING A SHOUT OUT AT THE #Emmys !😂

Then, when Brooker won a second award for Black Mirror for best TV movie with exec producer Annabel Jones, Huq stood up to congratulate Brooker and Jones and the scene was bloody wonderful.

Just look at them together. Goddamn LOOK.

American viewers wouldn't think too much about this scene, but for any British people watching, it was wonderful.

The whole night was so bloody special for them both.

So, in conclusion: Love is goddamn great, isn't it?

Note: This scene is from "Konnie's Great British Wee". I'm reminding you: Please, make some time to watch today. You can see their love and it's so damn good.
