A new social media trend is taking over Twitter whereby people tweet a photo of a famous paring of two actors or characters with the caption: “name a more iconic duo… I’ll wait.” These tweets have been getting thousands of favorites and retweets and are commonly duos from movies, tv shows, or celebrity couples.
ACHONA was inspired by this trend and decided to highlight a few of Academy’s own iconic duos.

We love to laugh at ourselves or at random things, which makes us a great pair. We also both cannot live without a little music sometimes, and are generally happy humans. We dislike rudeness, when it is too cold or too hot and those days that all we want to do is eat chocolate.”
4. Ralph and Ghosts
