Emma Stone Has Won the Oscar For Best Actress

La La Land Actors Gosling and Stone with Director Damien Chazelle

Emma Stone, 28, won the film's final honor of the night for Best Actress, and tearfully accepted the award after beating out competitors Meryl Streep, Ruth Negga, Natalie Portman, and Isabelle Huppert. In the audience, Moonlight director Barry Jenkins and actor Mahershala Ali hugged.

Emma Stone added of Moonlight's win: 'It was an unbelievable thing to hear La La Land.

'To our whole crew, to everyone who part their hearts and souls into this film: I'm going to find you all individually, and I'm going to thank you, all along with my friends, who I love so much.

Beatty returned to the microphone to say: "I want to tell you what happened I opened the envelope and it said Emma Stone, La La Land and that is why I took such a long look at Faye and at you". Do you think she deserved the Best Actress Oscar? "This is the first year I've allowed myself just a little bit to see that, to realize that self deprecation is not the answer to humility. So whatever story - I don't mean to start stuff - but whatever story that was, I had that card", she began, referencing the rumors. It really ... I don't know. She also shared some love for "Moonlight", which nabbed the award for Best Picture after what might be the most shocking twist in Oscar history. "But we are so excited for 'Moonlight.' I think it is one of the best films of all time". "And Moonlight, congratulations so so wonderful ⭐️", she added.

Stone thanked the other women in her category. "So as far as I'm concerned I think this is like the coolest outcome ever".

Although Legend was the one playing the piano during his Oscars performance, the recorded version features keys played by La La Land's composer Justin Hurwitz - who took home the golden statue for best score. I love him probably more than any person on the planet, so that's enough for me, that he exists is enough for me.
