After being known for having "the career Lindsay Lohan could've had," Emma Stone broke out on her own in a big way this year. The Crazy, Stupid, Love actress, who was nominated for a "Best Actress Comedy/Musical" at this year's Golden Globes for Easy A, has been on a streak with unexpected blockbusters like The Help. Next year, she star in the highly-anticipated reboot of web-slinger franchise, The Amazing Spider-Man.
