Emma Stone yells out 'I'm sorry' for 'Aloha' at the Golden Globes

Emma Stone yells out 'I'm sorry' for 'Aloha' at the Golden Globes

Emma Stone, who played a half-Chinese and half-Hawaiian airforce pilot in the film, shouts 'I'm Sorry!' at Oh, which she acknowledges.

That's because Oh made a joke about the number of times white actors have taken Asian roles in Hollywood and Stone's film was included.

Sandra Oh took a moment to congratulate Crazy Rich Asians for getting a Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy nomination but in doing so she ended up getting an apology from Emma Stone.

During Oh's monologue at the 76th annual Golden Globes Awards on Sunday at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, Oh praised Crazy Rich Asians for being "the first studio film with an Asian American lead since Ghost in the Shell and Aloha".

After the laughs and applause died down, a voice that sounded suspiciously like Stone's yelled out, "I'm sorryyyyyy!"

The actress, nominated for her performance in "The Favourite", has apologized for her role in "Aloha" before.

In addition to Aloha, Ghost in the Shell was criticized for casting Scarlett Johansson as its lead character, a Japanese fighter named Major Mila Killian.

"I've learned on a macro level about the insane history of whitewashing in Hollywood and how prevalent the problem truly is". She added: "There are some flaws in the system". In a 2015 interview, Stone said the controversy around her casting has opened her eyes "in many ways". "It's ignited a conversation that's very important", said Stone of her role in "Aloha".

Meanwhile, Oh went on to win her second Golden Globe for her portrayal of Eva Polastri in the hit BBC drama, Killing Eve.

"Mostly, there are two people here tonight that I am so grateful that they are here with me".
