Olivia Colman can predict the future!

Ok, look – she probably can’t, but at least her iconic 2019 Oscars speech is making the rounds again...

Twitter user @MattEvuns posted a video on Monday splicing sections of the speech to represent the first seven months of 2020.

And it’s oh so relatable.

For example, for the month of April – when the coronavirus pandemic was peaking in the UK – Colman can says:

It’s genuinely quite stressful.

In May, Lady Gaga dropped her album “Chromatica” and in the video, Colman screams out her name and blows a kiss in her direction.

While in July, Colman says in the video:

I’m going to find you later and I’m going to give you all a massive snog.

This is probably in reference to Boris Johnson introducing the bubble initiative, where you don’t have to socially distance with one other household if they’re part of your “bubble”.

At the time of writing, the video has more than 700,000 views on Twitter and over 45,000 likes.

Many also commented on how much they loved the compilation:

What about August though? One Twitter user had an idea…

Iconic.
