Actress Emma Stone bagged her first ever Golden Globe award on Sunday night and gave a huge shoutout to all the struggling artists in her speech – “I share this with you.”
Stone thanked her family before moving to tribute her win to every artist who has shared her pain of struggling in the industry.
“I have to start by thanking my amazing mom. Thank you mom for everything,” Stone said. “I moved here 13 years ago this week and without my mom and my dad and my brother who has put up with me his whole life, thank you Spence you’re the best. And my incredible friends, I love you so much.”
She further added,
“Ryan, you’re the best partner a girl could ask for. This is a film for dreamers and I think that hope and creativity are two of the most important things in the world and that’s what this movie is about so to any creative person who’s had a door slammed in their face, either metaphorically or physically, or actors who have had their auditions cut off, or anybody anywhere really who feels like giving up sometimes but finds it in themselves to get up and keep fighting, I share this with you.”
Stone bagged the Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy statuette for her leading role in Damien Chazelle’s La La Land, where she played the character of Mia with Ryan Gosling who played Sebastian. The two play star-crossed lovers, trying to come together and struggling to make it big in the entertainment industry.
Stone had earned additional nominations for the same role at the Critics Choice Awards and the Screen Actors Guild Awards.
La La Land had received a total of seven Golden Globe nominations in December, one of which was for best picture.
