She got her first Golden Globe nomination from the movie “Easy A.” Now, Emma Stone is getting Oscar buzz for her performance in “The Help.”

Emma Stone is one of Hollywood’s most sought-after young actresses nowadays, having garnered both critical and audience acclaim for her starring role as Olive in Will Gluck’s critically acclaimed teen comedy “Easy A.” Her performance also earned her a Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, as well as an MTV Movie Award for Best Comedic Performance and a nomination for the BAFTA Rising Star Award.

She was also seen in director Gluck’s “Friends with Benefits,” alongside Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis, followed by “Crazy, Stupid, Love” opposite Ryan Gosling. She will also appear as Gwen Stacy in director Marc Webb’s highly anticipated “The Amazing Spider-Man,” opposite Andrew Garfield in the title role.

She recently premiered her new movie “The Help,” an adaptation of Kathryn Stockett’s New York Times best-selling novel. The film received strong reviews including her performance in the movie. Does this mean she’s gonna earn her very first Oscar nomination come 2012?

“The Help” also stars Viola Davis, Sissy Spacek, Allison Janney, Octavia Spencer and Bryce Dallas Howard. It is directed by Tate Taylor and has opened in theaters last Thursday, August 11.
