It’s hard to imagine a time before Emma Stone existed in film. But, before 2007, the actress had barely touched any segment of the entertainment industry. After her first appearance on TV as a 16-year-old on In Search of the Partridge Family, Stone then went on to make appearances in a few shows including one particularly angsty role in Lucky Louie and then in 2007 she took the big screen as Jules in Superbad and the magic began.

Now, the 26-year-old actress has shown off her chops in an array of genres, and is currently up for her first Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress in the film, Birdman. In less than eight years, Stone went from quirky teen playing a minor role in a comedy blockbuster to critically-acclaimed actress, with award nominations and even a run on Broadway as the leading role in Cabaret. Her career may only just be beginning, but it has been an incredibly enjoyable journey over the years for her fans. And now in honor of her first Oscar nomination, let’s take a look at her 10 best performances, ranked.

10. The House Bunny
After her debut on Superbad, Stone starred in a number of silly rom-coms including the ridiculous House Bunny. The film follows Anna Faris as a former Playboy bunny who signs up to become a house mother at an misfit university sorority headed by a geeky Emma Stone. Her quirky, nerdy charm is some of the best material in the film, and though her role was small (yet bigger than that of Superbad) it gave audiences another taste of her unique charm, and made us want more.

The coming-of-age comedy explored what it means to be ‘sisters’ and friends, and while Emma Stone may arguably be a bit too pretty to pass off as the nerdy girl, her portrayed awkwardness makes it believable.
