The 35-year-old Oscar-winning actress clinched the Best Movie Actress Of The Year accolade for her outstanding performance in Poor Things on Sunday, January 14, held at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California.
This recent Critics Choice victory follows her earlier success at the 81st Annual Golden Globe Awards, where Stone claimed the title of Best Film Actress in a Comedy or Musical.

Adding a personalized touch to her look, Stone cinched her slender waist with a luxurious velvet sash bearing the initials “BB,” a nod to her character Bella Baxter in Poor Things.
The entire ensemble was masterfully curated by stylist Petra Flannery and complemented by glittering silver jewelry, including a diamond necklace, cuff earrings, and a ring.
Makeup artist Rachel Goodwin skillfully enhanced her natural beauty, delicately crafting a dewy complexion with a seamless finish featuring a warm brown eyeshadow, a subtle touch of blush, and a red sheer matte lipstick.

Emma Stone Takes a Jab at Critics in Her Acceptance Speech
Accepting the Best Actress Award for her portrayal of Bella Baxter in Poor Things, Emma Stone started her acceptance speech by expressing “full-blown shock” at receiving the prestigious prize.
The House Bunny actress exclaimed, “This is completely crazy.”
Delving into the intricacies of her role, where Stone embodied a character with an infant’s brain, Stone reflected on the impact of critics in the industry.
She shared, “Playing Bella was one of the greatest joys of my life. I got to unlearn a lot of things in playing her. Unlearn parts of shame and societal stuff that gets put on us, and I’m still working on it.”
Injecting humor into the moment, the La La Land star playfully quipped, “This is the Critics Choice Awards – and it is about outside opinion – but I’m very grateful to the critics for this. But I’m just learning not to care what you think.”
Stone extended her heartfelt acknowledgment to the fellow nominees in the category, individually recognizing Lily Gladstone for her nomination in Killers of the Flower Moon, Sandra Hüller for Anatomy of a Fall, Greta Lee for Past Lives, Carey Mulligan for Maestro, and Margot Robbie for Barbie.
In genuine disbelief, the Easy A actress said, “This doesn’t make any sense, so. Thank you so much for this; it means so much to me. I was being serious. I don’t know what to say.”
