Emma Stone Teases Longtime Pal Taylor Swift For Enthusiastic Support at 2024 Golden Globes: ‘What an A–hole!’

For the record, Emma Stone and Taylor Swift have been friends for a long time. And, not for nothing, Stone is one of our finest, and funniest, actors. So it was no surprise on Sunday night (Jan. 7) when Stone took the opportunity backstage at the 2024 Golden Globes to tweak her longtime pal while talking to the press about her Globe win for best performance by a female actor in a motion picture – musical or comedy for her over-the-top role as Bella in Poor Things.


“What an a–hole, am I right?” Stone said jokingly when a reporter asked about Swift’s predictably hyped-up support when her friend of two decades took home one of the night’s big honors. After walking away from the mic, Stone returned and added, “I’ve known her for almost 20 years, so I was very happy she was there. She was also nominated tonight, which was wonderful, and, um, yes, what an a–hole!” Stone repeated with a laugh.

A legendarily supportive awards show attendee, Swift jumped to her feet clapping and cheering for Stone when the actress made her way through the packed floor of the Beverly Hilton to collect her second Globe; eight-time nominee Stone won her first Globe for the 2017 movie musical La La Land.

While Stone, and the oddball Frankenstein-esque pic Poor Things had a good night at the Globes — besting Barbie for best motion picture musical or comedy — Swift’s record-breaking Eras Tour concert film lost out to the billion-dollar living doll movie in a new category at the awards show, cinematic and box office achievement.

Stone was obviously tweaking Swift with her comment, but the friends have frequently shown up for each other, with Taylor walking the red carpet last month at the Poor Things premiere, and Stone noting in an interview earlier this year that she caught the Eras Tour three times.
