Stone’s makeup look channeled soft glam, and her auburn-red hair was styled down in soft curls.

The actress expressed her gratitude for her second Best Actress nod and all Poor Things’ honors when the 2024 Academy Awards nominations were shared.

“Eleven nominations for Poor Things feels like a surreal dream,” Stone said. “I am beyond grateful to the Academy for including me as both an actress and producer among this group of exceptional nominees and for recognizing our film in so many categories.”

At the end of February, Stone and Poor Things director, Yorgos Lanthimos, spoke to Variety about her character, Bella. Stone, who suffered from severe childhood anxiety, reflected on why playing such a liberated, shameless character resonated with her.

“I think that’s why I was so crazy about her [because of her nature],” Stone said. “It’s the idea of not living with that self-judgment or shame, as you say, or the social contracts that you make as a child growing up. And part of the nature of anxiety is that you’re always watching yourself. In some ways—this is horrible to say—it’s a very selfish condition to have. Not to insult other people with anxiety—I still have it—but it’s because you’re thinking about yourself a lot. You’re thinking about, ‘What’s going to happen to me? What have I said? What have I done?’ Whereas Bella’s way of approaching the world, it’s just about experience. It’s just about how she feels about things.”
