Along with Kristen Bell, Garrett Hedlund, and Alfre Woodard, Stone, 59, took the podium at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles to announce this year’s lineup, which included television shows Big Little Lies, The Handmaid’s Tale, and This Is Us, as well as the films The Post and The Shape of Water.
But social media was clearly distracted by Stone’s hair, which had been fashioned into a sort of three-pronged bouffant for the occasion, drawing comparisons to Heat Miser, a character from the 1974 film The Year Without a Santa Claus.
