Watch Trailblazer Emma Stone's Emotional MTV Movie Awards Speech
The main female role in The Amazing Spider-Man was the first-ever honored with the MTV Trailblazer Award, during the 2012 MTV Movie Awards on Sunday, June, 3rd.
The Amazing Spider-Man's Gwen Stacy gets the love of the Hollywood Stars Steve Carrell, Mila Kunis, Jason Sudeikis and yes, even Jim Carrey. Again.
The 23-year old actress Emma Stone was clearly touched and could not contain tears during her acceptance speech. “Thank you, I’m a crier,” she said. Here's a full transcript, or watch the videos of the Hollywood stars giving Emma Stone loads of love and her emotional acceptance speech below:
“So, I looked up the actual definition of trailblazer, and it means someone who blazes a trail to be followed by others. And that’s an honor to hear you’re being associated with a concept like that".
“But the only thing I can hope that an award inspires is originality,” Stone added, “because the trailblazers I’ve looked up to and been inspired by are people like Gilda Radner and Bill Murray and John Candy and Charlie Chaplin and the Beatles and J.D. Salinger. Lorne Michaels, who reminds me the importance of comedy, and Cameron Crowe, whose work consistently reminds me of why I want to be an actor.”
“Those people are my creative trailblazers, but I’m not following any of their paths, and what’s incredible about them is they help make me want to be more myself because they’re all originals,” she said. “And I hope that you’ll find your trailblazers. And, trust me, I do not need to be one of them. I probably shouldn’t be one of them,” she laughed.
“But that you’ll continue to harness your own originality and what makes you unique 'cause I know that when you’re a teenager — sometimes when you’re an adult — what sets you apart can sometimes feel like a burden and it’s not. And a lot of the time, it’s what makes you great. So I kind of sound like I live in a van down by the river right now".
“But I am deeply touched and grateful for this,” she said in closing.
It seems that our new Gwen Stacy indeed learn one thing or two with our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man after all, eh?
The Amazing Spider-Man is the story of Peter Parker (Garfield), an outcast high schooler who was abandoned by his parents as a boy, leaving him to be raised by his Uncle Ben (Sheen) and Aunt May (Field). Like most teenagers, Peter is trying to figure out who he is and how he got to be the person he is today. Peter is also finding his way with his first high school crush, Gwen Stacy (Stone), and together, they struggle with love, commitment, and secrets. As Peter discovers a mysterious briefcase that belonged to his father, he begins a quest to understand his parents' disappearance - leading him directly to Oscorp and the lab of Dr Curt Connors (Ifans), his father's former partner. As Spider-Man is set on a collision course with Connors' alter-ego, The Lizard, Peter will make life-altering choices to use his powers and shape his destiny to become a hero.
