Emma Stone applies to ‘Jeopardy!’ every June: ‘I watch it’ daily


Who is … the lead actress in ‘Poor Things’?

Emma Stone is a really big “Jeopardy!” fan. So much so, that the Oscar winner applies to the game show every single year.

“I apply every June,” she said during Variety’s Awards Circuit podcast on Thursday. “I don’t want to go on ‘Celebrity Jeopardy!’ I want to earn my stripes.”

She continued, “You can only take the test once a year with your email address, and I’ve never gotten on the show.”

If she by chance ever gets the call to join, she will be well prepared.

“I watch it every single night, and I mark down how many answers I get right,” the 35-year-old exclaimed. “I swear, I could go on ‘Jeopardy!’”

Before Stone sits down to watch the show every night, she’s been staying busy by promoting her new film, “Poor Things.” The actress picked up the Golden Globes for her work in the best film actress category on Sunday.


During her speech, she gave a shoutout to husband Dave McCary and their daughter, Louise Jean.

“This is amazing, thank you. Dave, I have to start with you really quickly. I love you very much. Thank you for everything,” she said while also thanking her castmates and director, Yorgos Lanthimos, at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in L.A.

“The [film’s] crew [is] incredible. Tony [McNamara], this is our third time working together. Tony, our writer. I love getting to say this dialogue, and I love getting to horrify you with my Australian accent. You’re the best, Tony.”

“Poor Things” has next has earned 13 nominations at the Critics’ Choice Awards, which air in Santa Monica, California, on Sunday, Jan. 14.

The “Easy A” star could be on her way to snagging her second Oscar. In 2017, she took home the trophy for “La La Land.”

At the time, she thanked directed Damien Chazelle and her frequent collaborator and co-star, Ryan Gosling.


“Thank you for making me laugh and for always raising the bar and being the greatest partner on this crazy adventure,” she told the “Barbie” star.

To her crew and her friends, she added: “I’m going to hug the hell out of you when the feeling reenters my body.”

Stone isn’t the only star who is an avid “Jeopardy!” watcher. Among the celebs who have played the “Celebrity Jeopardy!” version include Jason Alexander, Aaron Rodgers, Michael Cera, Simu Liu, Macaulay Culkin, Anderson Cooper, Neil Patrick Harris, Jodie Foster, Lauren Graham, Jane Seymour and Ashton Kutcher.
