How cute is this? Emma Stone was awarded with the 2017 SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role for La La Land on Sunday, January 29, and her costar Ryan Gosling‘s reaction was beyond adorable. Watch the video above!
Jonah Hill presented the 28-year-old actress with the award (Superbad reunion alert!), and she was visibly at a loss for words as the countdown clock began to tick. “Wow, um, to be an actor, playing an actor, receiving an [award] by a guild of actors, it’s pretty exceptional,” Stone said with a laugh. “Oh, it’s counting me down. OK. Um, I forgot everything that I ever have thought in my life.”
Stone got back on track as she thanked the musical’s director, Damien Chazelle, and the Notebook actor. “Ryan, you’re the best. That’s just the truth. No one can argue it,” she said as Gosling (also her costar in Crazy Stupid Love and Gangster Squad) tried to stifle his laughter and briefly covered his face in embarrassment.
When the countdown clock urged the Golden Globe winner to wrap up her speech, she concluded, “I was just going to say that I feel insecure a lot of the time, genuinely. Feeling like I could deserve anything like this award requires a little bit of mental gymnastics for me. … God, I know I have to wrap up. I feel like I’m going to faint.”
Though La La Land won only one award on Sunday night (Gosling lost Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role to Fences‘ Denzel Washington), the film is nominated for a historic 14 Oscar nominations, tying the record held by All About Eve (1950) and Titanic (1997). The Academy Awards will take place in Los Angeles on February 26.
