Memorable Moments

“My dress is broken. I think it happened during ‘I’m Just Ken,” Stone said while accepting the award.

“The other night, I was panicking, as you can kind of see, happens a lot — that maybe something like this could happen and Yorgos [Lanthimos] said to me, please take yourself out of it,” Stone added. “And he was right because it’s not about me. It’s about a team that came together to make something greater than the sum of its parts.”

Emma Stone said after winning her 2nd Oscar award as Best Actress for”Poor Things” within 7 years.
