You could tell by the way he twirled her across the stage that something was up.
Tom Hiddleston and Priyanka Chopra were paired up to present the award for Outstanding Directing for a Limited Series, Movie, or Dramatic Special at the 68th Annual Emmy Awards.
And damn it, did those two look good together.
Chopra wore a red Jason Wu gown, which many believe was the night's best look, so she and Hiddleston had a Cinderella moment on stage as he led her and that magnificent dress to the microphone.
But not before he spun her.
Maybe it was the dress. Or maybe it was the fact that Hiddleston's director for The Night Manager won the Emmy, but apparently he and Chopra got along like a house on fire after the show.
Sources told E! News that the two were "openly flirting with each other" at the Governor's Ball.
"Tom had his arm around her and held her close. Afterwards, Tom and Priyanka talked closely and were holding hands at one point for a few moments," a source at the party told the site.
"Priyanka fixed Tom's bow-tie and then the two kissed on both cheeks."
At some point during the night, Chopra gave her phone to Hiddleston, and then he gives his to her.
The source said they were likely putting their numbers in each other's phones, then had a "long hug," followed by "several kisses on the cheek."
"Priyanka and Tom said goodbye and she told him that she will see him later," the source said.
"They left the event about a minute after each other."
If you've been spending the summer without internet connection or human contact, you may not know that Hiddleston dated Taylor Swift.
Like, whirlwind-courtship-hey-look-we-are-together-seriously-look-at-us dating.
Unfortunately, their summer romance was not long for this world, and it was confirmed by People Magazine earlier this month that Hiddleston and Swift had parted ways.
On the red carpet last night, The Emmy nominee skirted around the topic of Swift.
When People asked if he and Swift were still friends, Hiddleston had a polite, but brief answer.
"Yes, yes we are."
Translation: Stop asking me stupid questions about a fling I had. I'm a serious actor!
Hiddleston actually is a superb actor with a voice like butter, and it's quite lovely to see him flirting with a vision such as Chopra.
Like every great night out, it all started with a dress.
