Emma Stone achieved another milestone as she won the award for ‘Best Movie Actress of the year’ for her performance in Poor Things at the 2024 Critics Choice Awards, held on Sunday, January 14.
The actress, who played the role of Bella Baxter in the science fantasy black comedy film, expressed her excitement over winning during her acceptance speech.
"This is completely crazy,” she said.
The Spider-Man actress further said, "playing Bella was one of the greatest joys of my life. I got to unlearn a lot of things in playing her—unlearn parts of shame and societal stuff that gets put on us, and I'm still working on it."
Emma also honored the other actresses nominated in the same category, including Lily Gladstone, Sandra Hüller, Carey Mulligan, Margot Robbie, and Greta Lee.
"This doesn't make any sense,” the 35-year-old actress said of winning the trophy in such good company. "So, thank you so much for this; it means so much to me. I was being serious. I don't know what to say."
She concluded her speech by saying, "This is the Critics Choice Awards, and it is about outside opinion — but I'm very grateful to the critics for this. But I'm just learning not to care what you think."
