Among those honoured in its artists category was Oscar winner and Eyes On Events cover star Emma Stone, who was heralded by long-term friend and fellow actor Brie Larson as "The selfless friend. The wise psychiatrist. The fearless leader. The coolest girl at the party"; Ed Sheeran was praised by friend Taylor Swift for his indomitable spirit, with Swift describing him as "a fighter who pops back up on his feet before you even noticed he’d been knocked down"; Alicia Keys was praised by actress Kerry Washington for her sincerity - "We are drawn to her honesty, we respect and adore her, and in doing so, we move closer to embracing our own true selves" - wrote the Scandal actress; Sarah Paulson had Cate Blanchett speak on her behalf, with Blanchett revealing that she is "floored by her buoyancy, her irreverence, her left-field sense of humour and her devotion to her craft"; Margot Robbie was described by Martin Scorcese as being "stunning in all she is and all she does"; while Gucci designer Alessandro Michele was put up with the greats of fashion design by Jared Leto, who wrote, "Yves, Karl, Gianni, Giorgio, Christian, Coco.
