Emma Stone Wins Best Actress at Capri Hollywood International Film Festival
Emma Stone has received the Best Actress award at this year’s Capri Hollywood International Film Festival.
The 28-year-old actress, who plays the role of Mia in La La Land alongside Ryan Gosling, 36, picked up the accolade at the 21st edition of the Italian movie festival, which also saw the drama film land six trophies at the annual bash, including Best Ensemble Cast, Best Song for the track ‘City of Stars’, Best Picture and Best Score.
Speaking in a statement about the accolades received at the ceremony, the festival’s founder and producer Pascal Vicedomini said: “This was an extraordinary edition for the quality of the artists who attended and the variety of works presented. I’m positive that most of our award winners will go on to be honoured at the Golden Globes and the Oscars. Best wishes to everyone and see you at the 22nd edition of Capri, Hollywood.”
Whilst La La Land received six nods at the event, Lion, which stars Nicole Kidman and Dev Patel, as well as Hacksaw Ridge came close to taking the lead as they both received five awards each.
Andrew Garfield was credited as Best Actor for his role as Desmond Doss in the historical film directed by Mel Gibson, who won Best Director.
Florence Foster Jenkins starring Meryl Streep was credited as the Comedy of the Year, whilst Disney’s recent release Moana, which sees Nicole Scherzinger provide the voice over to Sina, was recognized as the Best Animated Movie.
