Drama! Heartbreak! Scandal!
Last night’s 89th annual Academy Awards show had it all. Okay, fine, so it was pretty much just another boring awards show. There actually were some highlights during last night’s Oscars 2017 show though — there were also no Samsung-sponsored selfies, which itself is a highlight — and there was some serious drama as well. Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway announced on stage that “La La Land” had won the Oscar for best picture. It wasn’t entirely unexpected, of course, but there was one big problem… “La La Land” didn’t actually win the Oscar for best picture, But ……Unexpectedly Emma Stone grabbed Best Actress Award”
So Who is this USA’s New Sweetheart? lets check her bibliography .
Emily Jean “Emma” Stone was born in Scottsdale, Arizona, to Krista (Yeager), a homemaker, and Jeffrey Charles Stone, a contracting company founder and CEO. She is of Swedish (from her paternal grandfather), English, German, Scottish, and Irish descent. Stone began acting as a child as a member of the Valley Youth Theatre in Phoenix, Arizona, where she made her stage debut in a production of Kenneth Grahame‘s “The Wind in the Willows”. She appeared in many more productions through her early teens until, at the age of 15, she decided that she wanted to make acting her career.
The official story is that she made a PowerPoint presentation, backed by Madonna‘s “Hollywood” and itself entitled “Project Hollywood”, in an attempt to persuade her parents to allow her to drop out of school and move to Los Angeles. The pitch was successful and she and her mother moved to LA with her schooling completed at home while she spent her days auditioning.
She had her TV breakthrough when she won the part of Laurie Partridge in the VH1 talent/reality show In Search of the Partridge Family (2004) which led to a number of small TV roles in the following years.
