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

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.
