“La La Land” star Emma Stone stayed composed as she won her first Oscar for Best Actress Sunday night, but could no longer hold it together backstage when greeted by last year’s winner, Brie Larson.

Cameras captured the two actresses as Larson approached Stone to congratulate her on her newly acquired statue.

Stone stares at Larson for a second before saying, laughing, “Oh, now I start to cry,” as the two friends embraced each other.

The two were surrounded by cameras and photographers, who captured every bit of the moment as they hugged and sobbed before walking off together.

Larson then took to her own Instagram to share one of the photos, captioning it, “You know what’s better than winning? Watching your friends win.”
