Emma Stone, Jonah Hill Have 10-Year ‘Superbad’ Reunion at SAG Awards
In 2007, Jonah Hill's Superbad alter-ego, Seth, drunkenly toppled over onto Emma Stone's Jules and left the character with a black eye, but at last night's (January 29) 2017 SAG Awards, Hill was the only thing keeping a shaken Stone upright.
As part of a ten-year reunion of sorts, Hill presented the show's trophy for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role to Stone for her work on La La Land, and seemed especially thrilled to name his buddy the winner. And Hill's adoration extended until after the speech, when he — still beaming — escorted an incredulous Stone off-stage.
Stone, who seemed earnestly caught off-guard by her win, used her speech to speak to insecurities, and also praised Hollywood for keeping audiences' moods lifted during such harrowing political climates.
"To be an actor playing an actor and receiving an Actor by a guild of actors is pretty exceptional, thank you," she said, before noticing her speech's ticking clock. "I forgot everything that I have ever thought in my life."
"Feeling like I could deserve anything like this requires a little bit of mental gymnastics for me," she added. "We're in a really tricky time in the world, in our country and things are very inexcusable and scary and need action and I'm so grateful to be a part of a group of people that cares and wants to reflect things back to society."
