The kiss the every thirty-something remembers vividly from their childhood got a COVID-update for the MTV Movie & TV Awards: Greatest of All Time special. Selma Blair and Sarah Michelle Gellar’s original kiss for the movie, “Cruel Intentions,” landed them the Best Kiss Award at the 2000 MTV Movie Awards, but the ladies don’t deny the larger impact it had on society.
Captioned under an Instagram photo of the two actors holding a new popcorn statue, Selma Blair wrote in part: Looking back 20 years ago… A kiss. Between two young actresses. On screen. In a mainstream teen movie. In 2000. It was a sweet and delicious kiss for my character, Cecile. And she wanted more. And I must say it was a really good kiss. What feels so delicious to me now is how it isn’t shocking in 2020. It stands for a shift in thinking.
