La La Land made history in January by picking up a record-tying 14 Oscar nominations, a record set by Titanic and All About Eve. Among the nods are best picture, best actor for Ryan Gosling, and best actress for Emma Stone. After the nominations were announced, Stone reacted to the exciting news in the sweetest way possible. "I am so grateful for this honor and I'm so happy to share this feeling with my La La Land family," she said in a statement. "The greatest part of life is connecting with people, and I love the deeply talented, kind and passionate people I was lucky enough to work with on this movie. I'm also overjoyed that the movie has connected with audiences in the way it has, and that it's hopefully bringing a kick in their step to those who watch it. This is beyond any of our wildest imaginings and we can't wait to celebrate together."
Given the fact that the film has been sweeping award season, there's a good chance Stone will be bringing home the gold this year. Of course, this isn't the first time she's been nominated for an Oscar. In 2011, her film The Help scored a nod for best picture, and in 2015, she was up for best supporting actress for her performance in Birdman. (She lost to Boyhood's Patricia Arquette.) We're rooting for you, Emma!
