Oscars 2024 took place in Los Angeles on March 11. The event brought Emma Stone her second Best Actress Award for her performance in PooR Things. She was awarded the trophy by the previous year’s winner Michelle Yeoh, but it ended up as an awkward interaction. Now, the Everything Everywhere All At Once star has issued a clarification on what led to the confusion between her and Stone at the Oscars stage.

What was the awkward interaction?

Michelle along with fellow past Oscar winners and actresses Jennifer Lawrence, Charlize Theron, Sally Field, and Jessica Lange were on hand at Sunday's ceremony to present the award for Best Actress. Each actress gave a short speech about this year's nominees -- Emma Stone, Annette Bening, Lily Gladstone, Sandra Huller, and Carey Mulligan -- before the Poor Things actress was pronounced the winner.

 

 

Michelle handed Emma Stone's Oscar statuette to Jennifer Lawrence on the Oscars stage causing confusion. As Emma Stone walked onto the stage, she told the women that her custom Louis Vuitton gown had ripped before walking over to Michelle, who was holding onto the statuette.

As per People, Michelle, still holding onto the Oscar, walked over to Lawrence, who took it from her hands and presented it to Emma. After Emma said, "Thank you", she and Lawrence laughed before hugging each other.
