Emma Stone is one of the most popular actresses working in Hollywood today. The stunning comedienne burst onto the scene with the 2007 hit movie Superbad and has become a much sought-after A-lister ever since. In 2017, Stone won a Best Actress Oscar for her performance in La La Land. But have you ever considered what fans think is Stone's best movie to date?
Don't fret if not friends, we've got you covered. With Stone set to assault the screen when Zombieland: Double Tap opens this Friday, it's time to look back at some of Emma's finest hours. Here are the 10 Best Emma Stone Movies, According To IMDB!
10 The Amazing Spider-Man (6.9)
Believe it or not, The Amazing Spider-Man is the tenth most beloved Emma Stone movie, according to IMDB.
This movie marked the first time Stone assumed the female lead in a mega-budget blockbuster. We know about the off-screen romance between her and costar Andrew Garfield, which surely informed how Stone played the iconic Gwen Stacy. Unfortunately, fans fell out of favor with the sequel, leaving producers no choice but to reboot the franchise after The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Hey, at least Stone traded a Spider-Man for a Birdman.
9 Easy A (7.1)
Easy A proved Emma Stone could carry a film on her charming wits alone. The commercial and critical hit comedy showcased Stone's innate comedic chops, as well as her nuanced acting ability.
Loosely based on The Scarlet Letter, the movie revolves around Olive (Stone), a straight-laced high-school student whose reputation is sullied by pernicious rumors. Fans of the film instantly fell in love with Stone as Olive. Simply put, Easy A turned her into a superstar almost overnight. The kicker? Stone opted out of the abysmal Sucker Punch to make Easy A instead.
8 The Croods (7.2)
In her only voiceover role to crack the top 10, IMDb users feel quite strongly about The Croods. How do you think they'll react to the encore when The Croods 2 comes out in 2020?
Stone again demonstrates her comedic timing and brilliant line readings as Eep in The Croods. The film centers on a family of cavemen who use the help of a trailblazing boy to traverse a mystical land. The movie succeeds in proving that Stone knows no performative limits. She can do it all!
7 Crazy, Stupid, Love. (7.4)
IMDb voters fell in Crazy, Stupid, Love., Stone's first rom-com since Easy A. Can you blame them?
While the primary plot concerns the romantic dealings of Cal (Steve Carell) and Emily Weaver (Julianne Moore), it's Stone's subplot that steals the show. Stone plays Hannah, a gorgeous ingenue wily enough to deny the advances of Jacob (Ryan Gosling), the town playboy. Yet, the more time they spend together, the clearer it becomes that they've fallen for each other. Of course, Stone and Gosling would romantically reunite five years later in La La Land.
6 The Favourite (7.6)
It only makes sense that the aptly titled The Favourite is among Stone's most adored movies to date.
Indeed, the bawdily decadent comedy of (poor) manners scored Stone her third Oscar nomination since 2015. While Stone did not take home the trophy for Best Supporting Actress, her leading costar Olivia Colman did win the Best Actress award. The movie earned 10 total Oscar nominations. As for its IMDb score, The Favourite is the third Stone movie to currently have a 7.6/10 rating.
5 Zombieland (7.6)
With its high IMDb rating, there's little doubt that Zombieland is one of Emma Stone's best movies.
Released in 2009, one year before Stone's breakout leading hit Easy A, Zombieland proved Stone could be an integral part of an ensemble. With equal parts mordant humor and mortifying horror, Zombieland cashed-in on the cultural zombie craze of 2009-2010. When Zombieland: Double Tap opens this Friday, the blood-soaked saga of Wichita (Stone), Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson), Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg) and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin) will continue.
4 Superbad (7.6)
Slightly edging out Zombieland by about 20,000 votes, Superbad is the fourth-best Emma Stone movie according to IMDb.
It's safe to say Stone owes a great deal to the success of Superbad, her very first movie. Indeed, Stone was only about 18 years old when she filmed her role as Jules. The film follows a pair of high-school friends (Jonah Hill and Michael Cera) afraid of growing apart once college starts, and reconcile their relationship during a wild party. Stone plays the cool, funny, and considerate romantic interest to Jonah Hill's Seth.
3 Birdman (7.7)
It should come as no surprise that the Best Picture Winner of 2015 ranks high among Emma Stone's filmography.
Indeed, Birdman Or (The Unexpected Virtue Of Ignorance) not only won Best Picture, the highest film honor of the year, but it almost marked the first time Stone earned an Oscar nomination. In the film, she plays Sam, the jaded daughter of Michael Keaton's Riggan. As she struggles to find footing in the world, Sam strikes up an unlikely bond with hotshot theater actor Mike (Edward Norton). A great performance in an even greater film.
2 La La Land (8.0)
According to IMBD, Emma Stone's Oscar-winning performance is good enough to nab the silver.
La La Land features a tour-de-force turn from Stone, who, for the first time, demonstrates her impressive singing ability. Of course, who can forget Oscar night, when La La Land was mistakenly awarded Best Picture? Stone runs the full gamut of human emotions as Mia, a small-town hopeful with big Hollywood dreams. It's a heartbreaking performance in a terrific movie.
1 The Help (8.1)
The highest-rated Emma Stone movie to date, according to IMDb, is the southern period-drama The Help. Of course, it helps to have a New York Times best-selling novel on which to base your movie.
The film revolves around aspiring author Skeeter Phelan (Stone), who decides to write a tell-all book during the civil rights era. For her subject, she chronicles the daily routine of African-American maids in all-white households in the American south. Stone's role is the pivotal conduit through which both races are understood.
