Last night, Emma won her first ever Golden Globe award in the category for best actress in a motion picture, musical or comedy for her role in La La Land. The film was praised throughout the entire ceremony and actually won seven awards, which is the most any movie has ever won. Clearly Emma and the rest of the cast were phenomenal!
Emma got up on stage to accept her award and she looked absolutely radiant. However, in a screen shot taken by a viewer, fans can see Andrew in the background giving his ex-girlfriend a standing ovation! This is seriously the sweetest thing ever and just goes to show that not all break ups in Hollywood end in disaster.
The viewer captioned her tweet, "Andrew Garfield gave Emma Stone a standing ovation so i'm holding on to some hope."

Aww! Emma and Andrew were together for four years before they split in 2015. Not only did Andrew's show of support make this whole moment super special, but Emma's acceptance speech was just as inspiring.
She said, "Thank you. Oh, boy. Thank you to the Hollywood Foreign Press for this. And I have to start by thanking my amazing mom. Thank you, mom, for everything. I moved here 13 years ago this week, and without my mom and my dad and my brother, who has put up with me his whole life, thank you, Spence, you're the best. To Doug, who has been my rock for 12 years. And holly and Michelle and Megan and Greta, thank you for everything.
"And to Lionsgate and our producers for taking a chance on this guy Damien Chazelle saying he wanted to make a modern original musical, that was sort of a crazy notion. Thank you for that. Thank you, Damien, for this opportunity and for your vision and your dedication and your passion. And Ryan [Gosling] for being the best partner a girl could ask for. And to Mandy Moore, our choreographer, for your brilliance and patience. And everyone on our crew.
"This is a film for dreamers. And I think that hope and creativity are two of the most important things in the world. And that's what this movie is about. So to any creative person who has had a door slammed in their face, either metaphorically or physically, or actors who have had their auditions cut off, or waited for a callback that didn't come, or anybody, anywhere really, that feels like giving up sometimes, but finds it in themselves to get up and keep moving forward, I share this with you. Thank you so much for this. Thank you."
Wow! Bravo, Emma! She is seriously a class act. The acknowledgement of dreamers everywhere and the feeling that we have all felt from time to time where it seems impossible to move on was amazing. It makes her that much more relatable and we can only hope that she shares more of her wise words and wisdom in the future!
