Remember when your kid sister used to stage make-out sessions between her Ken and Barbie dolls? This is kind of like that, except on a whole other level.

Fresh off of his Oscars win for Best Original Screenplay for “Get Out,” Jordan Peele played matchmaker for his new trophy, introducing him to a real golden girl — his Emmy award.

Peele posted a photo of the historic meet-up on his Twitter account on Monday, likening the encounter to the process of childbirth.

“This is exactly what it looked like watching my wife give birth,” Peele wrote.

Peele scored an Emmy in 2016, when his Comedy Central series “Key & Peele” won in the Outstanding Variety Sketch Series category.

Peele became the first African American winner for Best Original Screenplay at Sunday night’s Oscars, after becoming just the fourth black writer nominated in the category.

“I want to dedicate this to all the people who raised my voice and let me make this movie,” Peele said upon accepting his Oscar.

But one thing: That chair in the background is the same one from “Get Out.”
