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.



We have yet more sad relationship news today, as singer and former X Factor star Ray Quinn has announced his separation from his wife of three years.

Ray, who exchanged vows with Emma Stephens back in 2012, released a statement this weekend confirming the sad news.

“Unfortunately the speculation is true and Emma and I have regrettably parted ways. Out of respect for the privacy of my family I don’t want to delve into my private life too much, however what I will say is that our lives, after a period of time, have gone down separate paths,” read the statement.

The 26-year-old added: “Despite this obviously being a very difficult period in my life I am keeping very busy with my new music and will be continuing with my UK tour and the release of my new single as planned.”

Ray and Emma first met while doing a production of the musical version of Grease, and got engaged on Christmas Day back in 2010.

They went on to welcome their first child together, a son named Harry Frank, in 2012, the same year that they married.

This is very sad news indeed. Let’s hope it’s an amicable split.
