She may have won the Oscar for Best Actress, but Emma Stone may also deserve the award for the most savage moment of the evening.

Yes, the Oscars sure know how to serve up some juicy moments, and this year was no exception.

From Jimmy Kimmel calling out Donald Trump to Robert Downey Jr. looking less-than-impressed by jokes made at his expense, there were plenty of talking points and fallout from the 96th annual Acadamy Awards show.

But one particular moment caught the attention of eagle-eyed viewers, and it involves none other than Emma Stone.

As host Jimmy Kimmel took the stage to kick off the show, he couldn't resist poking fun at the movie Poor Things, in which Stone stars. But it seems not everyone found his humor amusing. When Kimmel made a playful jab at the film, Stone's reaction appeared to speak volumes.

After sharing several clips from the movie, 56-year-old Kimmel quipped: "Those were all the parts of Poor Things we’re allowed to show on TV."

However, as the audience applauded, Stone was caught on camera appearing to mutter something to husband Dave McCary.

And it wasn't long before social media was buzzing and internet sleuths were trying to read the star's lips and decipher what Stone had said.

The most popular answer: "He's a pr*ck".

"Gonna be a lot of hate for Emma Stone winning that Oscar, but we can all agree it was cool and funny when she leaned over to her husband and called Jimmy Kimmel a pr*ck," one X user wrote.

Of course, at this time, there's no way of knowing what Stone really muttered to her husband - I guess we'll just have to wait and see if she publicly comments on the now-viral moment.

As mentioned, Kimmel's opening monologue also failed to light up the room after he attempted to rip nominee Robert Downey Jr.

During his opening speech, Kimmel couldn't resist making light of Downey Jr.'s past struggles with addiction. "This is the highest point of Robert Downey Jr's long and illustrious career. Well, one of the highest points," Kimmel quipped, eliciting some uncomfortable laughter from the audience. Check out the moment he fell flat below:

But the real kicker came when Kimmel joked about Downey Jr.'s facial expressions, asking if they were "too on the nose" or perhaps a "drug motion". Yikes!

Nevertheless, it was Stone and Downey Jr. who had the last laugh.

Despite the awkward moments, Downey Jr. ended up taking home the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Oppenheimer.

As for Stone, she also emerged victorious, winning the award for Best Actress for her performance in Poor Things.

And speaking of Oppenheimer, the film proved to be the evening's big winner, snagging a whopping seven awards, including Best Picture. Director Christopher Nolan and star Cillian Murphy also took home top honors, further cementing the film's success.
