W magazine has released multiple visuals for its annual Best Performances issue, and this year it’s getting the stars of some of the buzziest films to come together. For its six covers, the magazine tapped actors including Mahershala Ali, Nicole Kidman, Michelle Williams, Joel Edgerton, Viggo Mortensen, Adam Driver, Amy Adams, Matthew McConaughey, Casey Affleck, and Emma Stone.

Ruth Negga, Vogue‘s January cover girl and star of Loving, for which she is nominated for a Golden Globe, is another of the actors featured on the magazine’s latest issue. Negga shares her cover with Natalie Portman, posed face to face, their heads tilted as if they are leaning in for a kiss.

Most of the cover subjects are male-female pairings, but Negga and Portman’s cover, and another picturing Mortensen and Driver in an embrace, are the two same-sex duos.

Negga just picked up the award for Rising Star at the 2017 Palm Springs Film Festival, so it seems she is already having a great start to the year — and to awards season, which begins in earnest Sunday with the 74th annual Golden Globe Awards, set to air on NBC at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
