Dawson’s Creek alumni Busy Philipps and Joshua Jackson on Tuesday congratulated former co-star Michelle Williams on her Oscar nomination for The Fabelmans — but Katie Holmes was strangely absent from the congratulations.

Busy, 43, who played Audrey Liddell in the series and Joshua, 44, who played Pacey Witter, praised Jen Lindley star Williams, 42, for her Best Actress nod – but Joey Potter star Holmes, who was said to be ‘not close’ was to the star, did not send a message.

Busy, who is best friends with Michelle, wrote on Instagram alongside a throwback snap of the star, “BRB- Just going back in time and telling this kid she will have 5 OSCAR NOMINATIONS in the next 20 years.

Joshua re-shared Busy’s post, writing, “5 Academy Award nominations!!! What are you doing now. I don’t know, but I imagine this was taken in a dingy watering hole when we were all kids. What a great journey you have had. Congratulations!’

Michelle goes up against Cate Blanchett for Tár, Ana de Armas for Blonde, Andrea Riseborough for To Leslie and Michelle Yeoh for Everything Everywhere All at Once.

The posts come five years after Busy fronted the Dawson’s Creek cast in her memoir This Will Only Hurt A Little.

“Katie was really sweet, but we didn’t spend much time together. I knew she trained a lot.’ Pressure writes.

She also noted that Katie (Joey Potter) and Michelle didn’t seem close, nor did Joshua and James Van Der Beek (Dawson Leery),

“She didn’t seem to be very into drinking, and while I knew she’d sneak a cigarette now and then, she wasn’t much of a girl who hangs out and smokes.”

Busy recalls going to Katie’s house a few times and looking at her crafts, something she also loved, but “had a hard time really connecting with her.”

“She had been dating Chris Klein for a while, and he came to Wilmington and spent a lot of time there, so she was out with him most of the time.” she writes.

Busy explains that as soon as she walked onto the set of the teen drama, she knew it was a different situation from Freaks And Geeks where “everyone was hanging out all the time.”

“Maybe that’s how it was when the show first started, but by the fifth season, when I showed up, the main cast wasn’t hanging together that much and there was obviously a pretty intense dynamic.” Pressure writes.

Dawson’s Creek ran for six seasons from 1998 to 2003 and was a huge hit for WB.

But Busy remembered an ungrateful comment from James Van Der Beek that surprised her.

“One day the whole cast was sitting around a table filming the Thanksgiving episode, and James looked at me and said, ‘See? You got lucky. Your show got canceled after the first season,'”

“I was so shocked by his complete lack of perspective, I was speechless. I mean. ALL of you are the lucky ones, here in SEASON FIVE of your HIT TV SHOW. Your LIFE has changed.’
