We're all familiar with Emma Stone, right?

She's an Oscar-winning actor, a clever comedian, and an all-around wonderful human being.

Well, Stone was privileged enough this year to portray one of the world's most beloved feminist icons, tennis legend Billie Jean King.

THEN & NOW: #BobbyRiggs & me at #BattleOfTheSexes presser in 1973; @stevecarell and #EmmaStone as us, filming now!🎾

The resemblance is UNCANNY.

King was quick to give her stamp of approval on Stone's performance, and Stone was even nominated for a Golden Globe.

So, as you can imagine, King was the absolute perfect choice for Stone's Golden Globes date.

Looking forward to the @goldenglobes tonight! #SundayFunday #GoldenGlobes https://t.co/jg8XfgPprL

Just look at them.

Stone was one of many actors who chose to forgo the typical plus-one to bring an activist instead, while many other attendees wore black in solidarity of the Time's Up movement.

Women supporting women is 100% the official mood for 2018 (and, hopefully, for every single year to come). Time is officially up.
