Emma Stone, who received the desert Palm Achievement Award for her work in Searchlight Pictures' "Poor Things" felt a little nervous accepting the award.

She joked around with him, saying, "I'm not a good public speaker. That's not really my- it's different than acting, you know? In fact, you probably, actually, are better at... this situation than I am. If you want to do it... That would be cool."

"It's very flattering to me that people have responded. I've gotten to meet some great people. I'm here for the ride," said "Oppenheimer" star Cillian Murphy.
