Heckling is not uncommon in Golden Globes. The gala, where alcohol consumption is explicitly permitted, and presenters entering the stage with whiskey glass in their hands, is considered one of the most relaxed awards in the American entertainment industry. Nevertheless, nobody would have expected Emma Stone's interjection.
When co-hosts and actress Sandra Oh made a point about the romantic comedy "Aloha", where White Stone played an Asian-born woman, Stone called "Sorry" through the hall. Oh, of Korean-Canadian descent, held his hands on the chest on stage, as if to accept or acknowledge Stein's spontaneous excuse.
"Aloha", based on the life story of Hawaiian-Chinese pilot Allison Ng, sparked a minor controversy over his insensitive casting as he appeared in 2015. Shortly afterwards, when White Tilda Swinton in "Dr. Strange" and Scarlett Johansson in "Ghost in the Shell "was cast into roles created in their cartoon painter Tibetan and Japanese, respectively, grew anger into a larger talk of whitewashing in Hollywood.
Stone had complained shortly after the release of the film and stated that he had recognized the problem of so-called "laundering". It is extraordinary that she again takes the public responsibility for the film's shortcomings. As nominees tonight (for the best film role) she would rather have performed in a different context in appearance.
With her interjection, Stone shows not least how easy it is to apologize. At the moment, Hollywood is still wondering if Oscar moderator Kevin Hart, who had just retired and retired himself, never apologized for older homophobic jokes and tweets. According to CNN research, Hart has so far not given any direct excuse for his criticized comments. Hart had been kidding, among other things, during the start of the decade, how great his fear was that his son could be gay and that he, as a heterosexual man, would do something to prevent it.
While Stone gave one of the most striking moments of this year's Golden Globes, Sandra Oh wrote almost random story: Not only was she the first woman of Asian descent to host the gala. She also won best actress TV drama for her role in the BBC America series "Killing Eve" – the first woman of Asian descent for 39 years. This makes her the first woman of Asian descent to win more Globes. In 2006, she accepted her first prize for "Gray's Anatomy".
