Nearly everyone and their mother expected Emma Stone to take home the Best Actress award at Sunday’s Academy Awards ceremony, but that didn’t make the moment any less emotional for the “La La Land” star.
When she gave her speech, it was clear Stone was overwhelmed with emotion, joking that she would thank and hug her friends when the feeling returned to her body. Still, she got through her moment with undeniable grace.
The feelings came pouring out when fellow actress and last year’s Best Actress winner, Brie Larson, came over to congratulate Stone backstage. Just as Larson opened her arms to embrace her friend in a hug, both ladies burst into tears (of the happy variety, we’re guessing).
The Academy captured the sweet hug on video, and it’s giving us all the feels.
Larson also shared a photo of the touching moment on Instagram, writing, “You know what’s better than winning? Watching your friends win.”
We’re not crying. You’re crying.
