Emma Stone is on cloud nine, basking in the "surreal dream" of Poor Things, bagging a total of 11 Oscar nominations.

The 96th annual Academy Awards nominees were revealed on Tuesday and those fortunate enough to be on the list wasted no time expressing their gratitude to the academy.

Stone, nominated for Best Actress in a Leading Role for her portrayal of Bella Baxter in Poor Things, couldn’t contain her excitement.

In a statement to CNN the La La Land actress expressed, "I am beyond grateful to the Academy for including me as both an actress and producer among this group of exceptional nominees and for recognizing our film in so many categories."

Her co-star, Mark Ruffalo, who also earned an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor in his role as Duncan Wedderburn, took a moment to applaud the entire film crew and said, "The team of artists who contributed to ‘Poor Things’ gave it everything."

"I am forever thankful for the opportunity to play Bella and see the world through her eyes. She has shown me that life is so much more than just sugar and violence," she concluded.

With a grand total of 11 nominations, including Best Picture and Adapted Screenplay, Poor Things has carved its place as one of the most recognized films of the year.

Moreover, it stands as the second-highest nominated movie, following Oppenheimer, which secured an impressive 13 nominations.

While this was a milestone in its own right, Stone is no stranger to the Oscars glory as she previously won the Academy Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role in 2017 for her performance as Mia in La La Land.
