The 2019 Golden Globes mark a double celebration for Keri Russell and co-star and real-life beau Matthew Rhys.

The real-life couple are both nominated for Golden Globes for their leading performances as Soviet spies posing as a U.S. married pair on the the FX drama series The Americans.

Actually, on second thought, make that a triple celebration.

"Thank God we don't have to break up," Russell joked to E! News' Ryan Seacrest on the red carpet at the award show on Sunday.

"It keeps our relationship together," Rhys added.

Seacrest joked, "Quite inconvenient if only one of you were nominated."

"It'd be a bummer," Russell said.

"We've discussed that, or whether in fact one of us wins," Rhys said.

When asked how that discussion goes," Russell joked, "We break up."

"Yeah, if you win, I'm gone, if I win, you're gone," Rhys joked.

This marks the third nomination for Russell and second for her role on the show. She has one Golden Globe under her belt for her past role on Felicity. Rhys was also nominated for his role on The Americans in 2017.
