At the award ceremony, the two actors took the stage to present the award for Best Male Actor in a Television Movie or Limited Series.
Viewers were left in hysterics as Ortega and Plaza showcased their deadpan wit and monotone voice.
Plaza told Ortega: “I don’t know why they paired us up together," to which the Wednesday star replied: “Yeah, I know, we have nothing in common.”
Plaza added: “We should find the people who did this."
Ortega jumped in, and the two said simultaneously: “And curse their families and watch as misfortune follows their bloodline for the next seven generations.”
We were asking for an Ancestry.com family tree at this point, as these two were clearly separated at birth.
The likeness had many stunned, as one person wrote: “Seeing Julie and Wednesday together was not on my 2023 bingo card, but it’s welcomed.”
Another said: “They are the Gen Z and Millennial version of the same person.”
While a third noted: “They need to be in a silly campy movie together oh my god.”
Netflix, the streaming service which distributes Wednesday, even tweeted that Plaza should be a guest star in the upcoming season.
They wrote: “I have nothing to do with casting, but how incredible would Aubrey Plaza be as one of Wednesday’s relatives in season two?!?”
Many users agreed, as one person wrote: “Y'all I've been saying this," while another said: “She could be Fester’s love interest Dementia.”
A third commented: “Would be a dream come true.”
Even if they don't star in Wednesday, they definitely deserve to be in a hilarious dark comedy together.
Netflix revealed season two for the hit show will be happening in the near future after the first instalment was lapped up by audiences around the world.
The streaming service confirmed the news in a teaser clip that shows the Addams family's iconic hearse returning through the Nevermore gates weeks after Wednesday managed to save the school.
She recalls her intense adventures after arriving at the school, remembering how she was 'hunted', 'haunted' and even 'mimicked millions of times across the internet'. Well, it was hard to ignore that dance, wasn't it?
"It's been torture," we hear her say, before seeing the character smirk and offer a 'thank you'.
The teaser promises viewers 'more misery', more Thing and of course more Ortega - we just have to hope her delightful roommate Enid will be back to offer a bit of reprise from all the darkness Wednesday introduces wherever she goes.
