Golden Globes 2019: Emma Stone Yells 'I'm Sorry' After 'Aloha' Asian Joke
Emma Stone is sorry!
During the opening monologue at the 2019 Golden Globes, co-host Sandra Oh made a joke about "Crazy Rich Asians" — which led Stone (nominated for supporting actress in "The Favourite") to make her vocal apology.
Oh said, "It is the first studio film with an Asian-American lead since 'Ghost in the Shell' and 'Aloha.'"
Cameron Crowe's 2015 film "Aloha" starred Stone as Allison Ng, a character of Asian descent. Her casting caused an uproar and Stone herself said of the experience, "I've learned on a macro level about the insane history of whitewashing in Hollywood and how prevalent the problem truly is. It's ignited a conversation that's very important."
Clearly, the lesson stuck because after Oh delivered her zinger, Stone is heard shouting "I'm sorry!" Unfortunately, the moment wasn't caught on screen.
