Emma Stone Bags Best Actress Award at Critics Choice Awards

Following the Golden Globes Awards held last week, the awards season continued Sunday night as the American-Canadian Critics Choice Awards rolled out the Red Carpet to round up the impressions of film and television connoisseurs and honor the best actors and productions in Hollywood over the past year. Actress-comedian Chelsea Handler returned for the second consecutive year as host of the awards ceremony. The ceremony was held at Barker Hangar at the Santa Monica airport in Los Angeles. Actress Emma Stone took home the 29th Critics Choice Award in the Best Actor Female category for her spectacular performance in the movie ‘Poor Things’ and she said she was surprised to receive the award saying it was completely crazy.  

The actress who played the lead role in ‘The Curse’ delivered the acceptance speech which was heartfelt, hilarious, and totally on the hook. She stated how she was shocked to receive this award and the fact that she did not prepare any speech because she thought that this was completely crazy. Among stars like Lily Gladstone, Margot Robbie, Greta, Sandra Hüller, and Carrie Mulligan she never expected herself to receive such a prestigious award. “This doesn’t make any sense. Thank you so much for this, it means so much to me. I was being serious. I don’t know what to say.”

Furthermore, she thanked her cast and crew, and the ‘La La Land’ actor thanked her co-actors and crew, Mark, William Ramy, Chris, Jerrod, Katherine, Hunter, Hanah, Shula, Andrew Low, Tony McNamer, and Yorgos. She added that playing the role of Bella was the greatest joy of her life and that role made her unlearn a lot of things. She unlearned the parts of shame and societal stuff that society burdens on them. 

Ending the speech in a humorous tone, Emma said, “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.”

Meanwhile, Christopher Nolan’s epic biographical thriller Oppenheimer continued its grandiose in collecting awards in several categories at the 29th Critics Choice Awards after sweeping off the 81st Golden Globes. The director himself bagged the Best Director award and Oppenheimer received the title of ‘Best Picture.’ Other categories include Best Supporting Actor, Best Editing, Best Cinematography, Best Visual Effects, Best Score, and Best Acting Ensemble. This biographical thriller is assured to receive plenty of awards in the future as well. 

On the other hand, the fantasy-comedy genre movie, Barbie, by Greta Gerwig which received recognition at the Golden Globes, found its way to the Critics Choice Awards 2024 as well. Barbie received awards in the categories of ‘Best Comedy’ and ‘Best Original Screenplay.’

There were fewer surprises on the television side, as “The Bear,” “Succession” and “Beef” won big, each taking multiple acting awards and winning best comedy series, drama series, and limited series, respectively.
