ANTHONY MACKIE AND FRANK GRILLO HAVE BEEN NOMINATED
Sam sleeps in the middle. It wasn’t a conscious choice it’s just how they ended up in bed that first night, Steve on his left and Bucky on his right. Afterward it worked so well they simply didn’t care to change it.
Steve likes being able to pull Sam close as he reaches over him to touch Bucky. Having the two most important people within arms reach keeps the the shadows of past loses away.
Sam likes the comfort. When he has nightmares about falling the weight of the arms and legs that inevitably pin him down help to ground him gently into more peaceful sleep.
Bucky likes the strategy. He likes that Sam is guarded by their super soldier forms. He likes that on bad days he can have his space while not being alone. He likes being able to get up without disturbing the others when his restlessness fills him with the need to pace and check their surroundings. Bucky likes that on good days he can throw a leg over both of them and get pulled in without having to say a word.
