Emma Stone is setting the record straight about that epic Oscar snafu on Sunday night.
During the show, Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway presented the award for Best Picture and accidentally announced that La La Land was the winner. Two minutes later, it was revealed that Moonlight was actually the winner and Beatty told the audience that he was given a card that read “Emma Stone – La La Land.”
Stone, however, refuted that claim during her backstage interview.
“I was actually holding my best actress in a leading role card that entire time,” she said. “So, whatever story that was, I don’t mean to start stuff but I have that card, so I’m not sure what happened, but I wanted to talk to you guys first.”
Stone also said she and her La La Land cast are happy Moonlight won Best Picture. “I’m so excited for Moonlight and of course and it was an amazing thing to hear La La Land, I think we would have all liked to win Best Picture, but we are so excited for Moonlight.”
Don’t Worry, Stacey Dash Still Hates Us Black Folks!
Pigs are not flying and hell has not frozen over…
When Damon Dash announced that he was doing a movie called “Honor Up” with Cam’ron and his cousin, conservative Trump-lover extraordinaire Stacey Dash, the internet exploded. The poster alone, with Dash sporting braids and hoop earrings, was enough to torch Stacey’s mentions reminding the actress of her BET-hating, Obama-shading ways.
Captioned, “This is really happening #HonorUp in theaters February #staytuned,” folks really believed Damon. Even ESPN’s Jemele Hill pulled Stacey’s card…
But it seems as though Damon may be out here spreading #FakeNews. Stacey has put her cousin on blast for using their family ties to promote the film.
However, it’s worth noting that Dash didn’t say she wasn’t in the film … just that she doesn’t have a written contract with Damon or Kanye West production company to use her name or image in advertising. Things that make you go, hmmmm.
