The BRIT Awards did an interesting thing this year. Almost a la Lindsay Lohan sharing the tiara in Mean Girls, each winner was given two statuettes, one of which they were meant to share — symbolically, I assume, in most cases? — with someone they felt was deserving. I’m not sure who else got them across the night, but Dua Lipa, who won two awards, had a lot to say. She “shared” one with Folajimi Olubunmi-Adewole and Joaquin Garcia, who dove into the Thames last month to try and rescue a woman who’d fallen in; Folajimi died in the process, and the woman and Joaquin survived. For the second, per the BBC:

Dua dedicated hers to British nurse Dame Elizabeth Anionwu – who she noted has spent “a stellar nursing career fighting racial injustice” and “protecting frontline workers.”

“She has also said that there’s a massive disparity between gratitude and respect for frontline workers,” said the singer. “Because it’s very good to clap for them, but we need to pay them. So I think what we should do, is we should all give a massive, massive round of applause and give Boris [Johnson] a message that we all support a fair pay rise is for our frontline.”
