The film dropped to a streaming service platform just in time to watch post-Oscars ceremony.

It's official: Emma Stone won her second Oscar at this year's Academy Awards ceremony for her role in Poor Things. The star took the stage for what seemed like a speech she didn't quite expect to make, apologized for her ripped dress, and thanked the Poor Things director, cast, crew and her husband. She also gave a special shoutout to her daughters via a Taylor Swift lyric. 

Critics were buzzing when Poor Things, starring Emma Stone and Mark Ruffalo, premiered in theaters. The unusual story was refreshing and audiences raved about the thought-provoking plotline and incredible performances.

When Victoria (Stone) dies tragically, a brilliant scientist (Willem Dafoe) replaces her brain with the brain of a child. The resurrected woman, Betlla Baxter (Stone), quickly becomes more intelligent. But — as you can imagine — growing up as a child in an adult body comes with its challenges, especially when she begins to have a sexual awakening.

 The critically acclaimed film is now streaming so you can watch it on your television screen at no extra cost (outside of your monthly membership fee). As of March 7, Poor Things is available to stream on Hulu.

Including Stone's Best Actress achievement, Poor Things earned four Oscar wins this year. The film's other winning categories were Best Production Design, Best Makeup and Hairstyling, and Best Costume Design. 

Before filming, Stone had some nerves about taking on this complex character, as she exclusively told ET. "I definitely didn't have reservations," Stone told ET. "If anything, I just had fear of not living up to how great this character is. She doesn't follow. She's never been taught by society what to be -- what she's supposed to be as a woman."

"She feels so happy to be alive, which is a great reminder -- we're not here for long," she continued. "And she really takes it all in and drinks up everything, even the hard things. It's all part of the human experience, it's all fascinating to her so I think that’s the most inspiring thing that I try to remember, as much as I possibly can."

Below is everything you need to know about watching Stone's Poor Things performance at home.
