All Emma Stone Movies Ranked
Early Certified Fresh hits got Emma Stone quickly into the spotlight, starting with a notable secondary role in Superbad, jumping to co-star in Zombieland, and taking the lead in Easy A, which meant A-list. The Amazing Spider-Man franchise may have fizzled after, but since then Stone’s been on the Academy’s invite list. She was Oscar-nominated for Birdman, The Favourite, and La La Land, winning for the latter. Third time’s the charm with Ryan Gosling. Stone’s been doing a victory lap with sequels to Zombieland and The Croods, and will appear next in 2021’s Cruella, as the Disney dalmatian queen herself. Before she goes to the dogs, we’re ranking all Emma Stone movies by Tomatometer!
