No, we're not crying. YOU'RE crying.
Words by Jadie Troy-Pryde
Ah, the Oscars 2017 – the awards ceremony that shall forever be remembered as the one where La La Land was mistakenly announced as the Best Picture, Chrissy Teigen got a tad bored and fell asleep on her husband, John Legend, and Justin Timberlake was like a dad at a disco proving that no matter how famous you are, it’s still possible to have zero cool at the Oscars.
But there is one moment that seems to have been overlooked, and we’re not quite sure why because it has made us believe in true love again.
Emma Stone’s role in La La Land won her the Oscar for Best Actress. During a very moving acceptance speech, the camera panned to the A-list audience and who was sat there, hanging on to every word, with actual tears of joy in his eyes?
None other than her ex boyfriend, Andrew Garfield.
Oh, make it stop! Our aching hearts!
Emma and Andrew dated for four years before calling it quits in 2015, and the pair have been nothing but supportive of each other since the split. In fact, throughout awards season Andrew has been unafraid to show how proud he is of Emma, and was even spotted giving her a standing ovation for her Golden Globes win.
So seeing him welling up and getting emotional while watching Emma accept her Oscar? Even the most stone-hearted of us have to admit that it’s possibly the sweetest thing we’ve ever seen.
