Emma Stone is surprised to see her name read in the same category of Hollywood A-listers like Angelina Jolie.
Stone, 22, was nominated for best actress for her leading role in Easy A and couldn’t believe that she’s up against Jolie. “Let’s just be honest, that’s pretty surreal. I don’t know what I’m going to do when I see her in person. I’m going to freak out when I see anybody in person,” Stone told People.
Unable to believe the nominations that were announced Tuesday, Stone adds, “It’s insane! I’m still coming to realization that I got nominated. I’m in the state of ‘Oh, My God!’ My mom and dad called and they were on speakerphone and said, ‘We’re proud of you,’ and that was the best. I teared up.”
Stone is also excited to see that her friend Jesse Eisenberg is also nominated for a Golden Globe. “I can’t wait to see him and hang out with him. I think Jesse is the greatest and he was unbelievable in The Social Network.”
Stone is set to play the female lead in the new Spider-Man prequel.
