When you're an actor who's just been nominated for the highest honor that Hollywood bestows, an official response is in order. Something befitting the gravity of the occasion; something humble, reserved, maybe even a little bit formal in its delivery.
That is, unless you're Emma Stone! Then, you can just get really excited and say the F-word all over the place, knowing that everyone will love you anyway, because you are a perfect human being and everything you do is adorable.
After getting the news that she'd been nominated for Best Supporting Actress for "Birdman" -- her first ever nod from the Academy -- Emma released the following statement:
"Well, this is surreal. I am completely knocked out. Thank you to the Academy for this incredible honor. I am very proud and lucky to be a part of Birdman and can't believe it came to this. I am so f--king excited. Are you allowed to say f--k when you're making a statement for the Oscars? I'm just really f--king excited."
Unsurprisingly, Emma's feelings about her nomination mirror our own. Not just because we love her and hope she wins, but also because we seriously cannot wait to see what she wears to the ceremony, after her flawlessly on-point jumpsuit at the Golden Globes. Are you allowed to say "f--k" when you're writing about the Oscars outfits you can't wait to see? Because we're just really f--king excited.
