The City of Stars shined for actress Emma Stone on Sunday.

The La La Land actress took home the Oscar for Best Actress for her role as Mia in the Los Angeles-based musical.

This was the second nomination for Stone, who previously received a nod for Birdman.

Stone received high praise for her portrayal of a struggling actress. 

Damien Chazelle's modern-yet-throwbacky musical, which co-stars Ryan Gosling as musician Seb, was nominated for a whopping 14 Oscars.

The nominees this year included Natalie Portman (Jackie), Meryl Streep (Florence Foster Jenkins), Isabelle Huppert (Elle) and Ruth Negga (Loving). 

"I still have a lot of growing and work to do," Stone said while receiving her award. "This guy [the Oscar] is a beautiful symbol to go on that journey thank you so much."

The emotional actress thanked Gosling, Chazelle and a handful of others in her speech.
