Stone, who played a part-Hawaiian and part-Chinese woman in the 2015 film "Aloha", could then be heard yelling, "I'm sorry!" off-screen, drawing laughs from the crowd. However, things got a little zippy once Oh, an Asian-Canadian actress, joked that nominated film Crazy Rich Asians was the first studio movie since Ghost in the Shell or Aloha to feature an Asian-American lead.
Yet another person tweeted: "Emma Stone shouting 'I'm sorry" is 2019'. "Ghost in the Shell" starred Scarlett Johansson as Major, a character revealed to be Asian as in the original manga and anime.
"I've learned on a macro level about the insane history of whitewashing in Hollywood and how prevalent the problem truly is", the actress continued. It's ignited a conversation that's very important, ' Stone said in 2015.
The camera didn't cut to her, which perhaps adds to the notion that this apology was unplanned, and that Emma really, really means it. "My eyes have been opened in many ways this year".
Stone confirmed to the Los Angeles Times that she didn't plan the outburst, "but I did say it".
Oh, who later took home the Golden Globe for Best Actress - TV Drama for "Killing Eve", ended the monologue with an emotional statement about "change". "I'd like to thank my mother, my father", she said before addressing them in Korean to tell them that she loved them.
