Emma Stone Oscars

Oscars 2017: Emma Stone Wins Best Actress for La La Land

A musical dreamer, a civil rights icon, a fashionable First Lady, a vengeful businesswoman and a talentless “singer” faced off Sunday for one of the Oscars‘ most coveted honors.

Five of Hollywood’s finest actresses — Emma Stone (La La Land), Ruth Negga (Loving), Natalie Portman (Jackie), Isabelle Huppert (Elle) and Meryl Streep (Florence Foster Jenkins) — were nominated for Best Actress at the 89th Academy Awards. But only one would hear her name announced by presenter Leonardo DiCaprio, and that actress turned out to be… Stone!

“Thank you so much to the Academy,” a breathless Stone began when she took the stage. “To the women in this category … you are all so extraordinary, and I look up to you and I admire you more than I could put into words. It has been the greatest honor just to stand alongside you.”

    from a reality competition to be in the new partridge family to the Oscars.
    i’ve been a fan of hers since Easy A. I’m so happy for her!!!

  2. Dominique says:

    she’s a wonderful actress and seems like a nice person, but that oscar should’ve gone to literally any of the other four actresses.

    She’s great, but I wouldn’t say it was the performance of the year. But she had to act, sing and dance in this role, so I can see why she got it.

    I love Emma, but that Oscar belonged to Natalie Portman.

    I’ve been a fan of Emma’s since Easy A and I’m so glad to see how far she’s come. This win was much deserved!
