Although she might have another nominations. 

Whereas the remainder of us have been labeling 2020 a dumpster fireplace and chucking the whole thing of it within the trash, Zooey, mother to 5-year-old Elsie and 3-year-old Charlie with ex-husband Jacob Pechenik, was prying out the bits value highlighting, most involving the man she just lately labeled “My 2020 MVP.”

And never simply because of the outsized gestures, like when he helped her ring in her 40th birthday final Jan. 17 with the neon hued- and spandex-filled celebration of her ’80s child goals. Whereas the festivities could also be decidedly understated for her forty first, Zooey has discovered the enjoyment in each final second with the man she credited with making her “really feel blissful regardless of a bizarre and unsure 12 months.” 

As she put it in an August post acknowledging the anniversary of their first assembly, “I’m so grateful for each smile, kiss, hug, snuggle, giggle, scrabble sport, escape room, breakfast, lunch and dinner we share collectively. Even through the weirdest 12 months for humanity I would like one million billion extra with you.”
