Bullock was being interviewed by ABC when Kidman appeared from behind. The Oscar winners shared a warm embrace before recalling their experience playing witch sisters Gillian (Kidman) and Sally (Bullock) Owens 20 years ago.
“We were talking about when we shot together and we asked her to get the tequila,” Bullock, who looked stunning in a black-and-gold Louis Vuitton gown, said. Gesturing toward Kidman, she added, “She came back with her own tequila but we drank it anyway. We were a little drunk.”
Best Dressed at the 2018 Oscars
“I love that movie,” Kidman, in blue Armani Privé, said. “I showed that movie to my kids. It’s a little above their [level of understanding] ... But we’re really good sisters.”
Twitter was justifiably living for the surprise reunion.
the #oscars pre-show ended as all oscar pre-shows should: with a very surprised Nicole Kidman telling Sandra Bullock that she actually likes PRACTICAL MAGIC.

I don't watch the Red Carpet but I tuned in just in time to witness Nicole Kidman sneak up on Sandra Bullock and they ignored the interviewer and just began chatting about how much they like Practical Magic (one of my all time faves) so now I'm in a great mood to watch the Oscars

Bullock returns to the big screen in June in the hotly anticipated “Ocean’s 8,” the female-led follow up to the “Ocean’s Eleven” trilogy.
