You’ll almost definitely cry too.

Emma Stone won the Oscar for Best Actress at the drama-packed awards ceremony this week, and we can only imagine what a surreal moment it must have been.

After she came off stage following her acceptance speech, the La La Land star ran into Brie Larson, last year’s Best Actress winner and also one of her BFFs.

In video footage of the moment, you can see Emma starting to comprehend the magnitude of the moment, and going through All Of The Emotions: confusion, realisation, excitement and finally, lots of crying.

Later, Brie shared a pic of her and Emma hugging with a beautiful caption.

Talk about #FriendshipGoals.

The actress looked overwhelmed during her Best Actress acceptance speech, but she somehow still managed to be eloquent AF. After thanking her co-star Ryan Gosling, director Damien Chazelle, and her friends and family, she said:

"I still have a lot of growing and learning and work to do, and this guy [pointing at her statue] is a really beautiful symbol to continue on that journey and I'm so grateful for that. So thank you so much, thank you."

Speaking about the very awkward ending to the ceremony when La La Land was initially announced as Best Picture before it was revealed it was really Moonlight, Emma summed up how we were all feeling.

"[It was] one of the most horrible moments of my life,” she told the Daily Mail. “Wow! It was just so horrible."

She elaborated a bit more when she was answering journalists’ questions backstage at the ceremony.

"I fcking love Moonlight," she said. "Of course it was an amazing thing to hear them say La La Land — we would have loved to win best picture, but we're so happy for Moonlight*. I think it's one of the best films of all time, so I was pretty beside myself."

She also admitted she was confused about how the mistake could have happened, since she was holding her Best Actress name card after she won.

"I also was holding my best actress in a leading role card that entire time. I don't mean to start stuff, but whatever story that was … I had that card."

What a wild ride.
