Emma Stone wins her second Academy Award for Best Actress. Seven years after La La Land. A feat for an actress of only 35 years old. The race was very close this Sunday. She faced Lily Gladstone (Killers Of The Flower Moon), Sandra Hüller (Anatomy of a Fall), Carey Mulligan (Maestro), Annette Bening (Unsinkable).

Throughout awards season, Emma Stone and Lily Gladstone have been neck and neck. If Lily Gladstone had won the Oscar, she would have become the first Native American actress to do so.

In Poor Creatures, winner of the Golden Lion in Venice, Emma Stone portrays a female variation of Frankenstein’s creature.

Emma Stone seemed stunned with surprise. “My dress broke during Ryan Gosling’s performance. I’m overwhelmed. All my co-nominees are incredible. I share this Oscars with you. I hope we can work together in the future. I was panicking yesterday and just now. As this happens to me, Yorgos Lanthimos tells me to get out of my body. He’s so right because a film is the sum of its parts and I’m just a piece. The role of Bella was the role of a lifetime,” she confided. She dedicated it to her granddaughter who will be celebrating her third birthday in a few days.
