The 2018 Oscars were marked with a ton of controversy this year. Whether it be being interviewed on the red carpet by Ryan Seacrest, who came under fire after his former personal stylist alleged that he touched her inappropriately, or just reminiscing on the embarrassing gaffe last year when the Best Picture winner was announced, this year was supposed to be a breath of fresh air.
With the #MeToo movement going strong and the Oscars embracing more minorities in their nominees, this year was set to be one of the more influential award ceremonies. When host Jimmy Kimmel opened up the ceremony with his monologue he couldn’t help but mention last year’s mishap with the Best Picture award.
And the cameras quickly panned to Emma Stone to get a shot of her reaction. And who else but Jennifer Lawrence was seated next to her, ready to pounce at the opportunity to poke fun at her best friend. As the cameras pointed to Emma to get her reaction, everyone couldn’t help but focus on Jennifer Lawrence who could be seen in the corner slyly pointing her finger at Emma and bursting out in a fit of laughter.At one point, she could even be seen slapping her knee enthusiastically and still laughing at her BFF. Emma had no choice but to feign a disappointed expression. And of course, social media had to point out the celebrity friendship that everyone so longingly adores.
Jess Goodwin went on Twitter to write: ‘we all have that one a****le friend and Jennifer Lawrence is Emma Stone’s.’ Glamour magazine tweeted: ‘find a friend who supports you – and mocks you- like Jennifer Lawrence does to Emma Stone.’ That tweet from Glamour got more than 400 likes and 70 retweets.
Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Stone publicized their BFF friendship after their Golden Globes appearance earlier this year. In a video, which was filmed by Emma Stone, Jennifer can be seen sitting in a chair with a half-face full of makeup.
Emma, who was behind the camera at the time, can be heard asking her friend: ‘what happened tonight?’ And this was Jennifer’s reply: ‘well you told me that you wanted me to be your date to the after parties so I got us tickets to some after parties, I booked a car and I was halfway through glam when you told me that you didn’t want to go and you just wanted to come over to my house. So I sent my hair and make-up team home and now this is what I look like.’ And of course, the video ended with Emma clearly laughing at her friend in the background.
