That's what Jacob Staudenmaier learned after his elaborate, La La Land-inspired promposal to Emma Stone ended with a sweet (but definitive) rejection.
Sure, it was a long shot to begin with. The Arizona high school orchestrated an adorable musical prom invitation filmed in front of his high school to the tune of the film's opening number Another Day of Sun.
Like this Phoenix high school student who wants Emma Stone to be his prom date!
With the help of his somewhat enthusiastic friends, Jacob Staudenmair recreated the opening scene from La La Land to extend an invitation to the Oscar winner.
Singing his own version of the film's musical opening Another Day of Sun, the 17-year-old danced and sang through his high school parking lot, attempting to woo Stone with a night she'll never forget — which includes dining at local favorites like Olive Garden.
The Best Picture mix-up was the subject of every late night monologue on Monday night, but nobody quite captured the emotion of the snafu better than James Corden.
Dressing up as Emma Stone in her Academy Award winning role, the Late Late Show host recreated Mia's audition scene in Damien Chazelle's movie musical to tell a story — and it sure wasn't about her aunt in Paris!
Well, the reason for that is because there were two Best Actress envelopes. One was in Emma Stone's possession, while the other was mistakenly given to Mr. Beatty.
PricewaterhouseCoopers, the accounting firm that oversees the envelopes, now explains that two of their reps, Martha Ruiz and Brian Cullinan, were stationed on both sides of the stage. Both also had their own briefcase containing envelopes of all the winners.
Ruiz handed off the Best Actress envelope when it was time to announce the award, the penultimate of the night, and then immediately following that, when Best Picture was about to be announced, Cullinan also handed off his duplicate of the Best Actress envelope. OOPS!!!
News is just coming in that Kim Zolciak-Biermann's son Kash, 4, was bitten by a dog at some point on Saturday night, with "traumatic injuries" so extensive, it required multiple hours of surgery afterwards.
