The Golden Globes opened with some cracking jokes on Sunday night.

The opening monologue was delivered by Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg.

The big cinema hits such as Black Panther, A Star is Born and Crazy Rich Asians were targeted as the comedic material.

While most were chucking along, not everyone was giggling – cough, cough Emma Stone.

The actress was heard apologising as one the jokes got a round of applause from the crowd.

The joke came from Sandra, who praised Crazy Rich Asians for finally representing Asians accurately in Hollywood.

The actress teased: "It is the first studio film with an Asian American lead since Ghost in the Shell and Aloha." 

As the words poured from her mouth, you can hear Emma Stone scream: "I'm sorry."

Her apology comes as Ghost in the Shell and Aloha was slammed for white washing. 

In Aloha,  Emma took on the role of Allison Ng, whilst Scarlett Johansson starred as the main character in the anime adaption of Ghost in the Shell.

The two women over the years have received serious stick from critics over the white washing that took place in both films.

Emma addressed the issue back in 2015, saying: "I’ve learned on a macro level about the insane history of whitewashing in Hollywood and how prevalent the problem truly is."

"It’s ignited a conversation that’s very important," she added to the Australian news station, New.com.au.  

Most of Twitter was behind Emma's apology at the award show, commenting that they accepted it.

It may be many more years before Emma can finally leave her part in Aloha behind.


The only thing worse than waking up with a hangover? Waking up with a hangover AND the nagging feeling you did something pretty stupid last night.

We're guessing student Lizzie Ruddy had The Fear in a big way this week, when her drunken apology went viral on Twitter.

After an argument with her boyfriend Sam Demelo, Lizzie did what any very drunk person would do and sent him a personalised greeting card with photos of her and a heartfelt (ish) apology.

Is there any opening line more beautiful than "hiya imdrunkbut im so sorry sam"?

Inside the card, Lizzie continued with more stunning prose, this time hitting Sam right in the feels with the mention of fajitas:

And of course, to finish, she added a selfie to the back of the card with the caption, "Me ^^^^ look how nice i look haha x."

Sam couldn't resist sharing the card on Twitter, where it has since had 12,000 retweets and 17,000 favourites.

We hope he accepted her apology, at least.
