Taylor Swift was "enchanted" by Ebon Moss-Bachrach giving her a shout-out at the 2024 Critics Choice Awards.

After The Bear star, 46, took home the award for best supporting actor in a comedy series on Sunday, he gave a special shout-out to Taylor Swift and Olivia Colman during his acceptance speech.

"I've gotta thank my two special scene partners this year, Olivia Colman and Taylor Swift," Moss-Bachrach told the audience, before thanking his wife, and two daughters for their support.

On Monday, the "Delicate" musician, 34, replied to a news post about his speech on X (formerly known as Twitter) from Rolling Stone.

"Congratulations!! 🫶🤭🙏," Swift wrote.

Moss-Bachrach's shout-out to the 12-time Grammy winner and The Favourite star, 49, referred to a season 2 episode of the Hulu comedy series in which his character, Richie, tried to score highly-coveted Swift tickets for his daughter and ex-wife. While he acquired the tickets, Richie discovered his ex got engaged to someone else.

But it wasn't all doom and gloom. The episode spawned a fan-favorite scene where the rough around the edges character belting out Swift's "Love Story" on his drive home.

That same episode also featured Colman as Chef Terry — the woman leading Richie's week-long training retreat at one of the world's best restaurants. On-screen, the pair had a heartwarming bonding moment that seemed to inspire Richie, something fans had waited for since season 1.

During his Critics' Choice speech, the Girls actor also reflected on his character's newfound tender side.

"This is such a privilege to play this part," he said. "Really beautiful experience to take this man kind of from a tough place into the light. It's not often you get to do that — to play joy. And it's been a really wonderful, special, special experience for me."
