    Smile time stood still

    I'm not quite sure the meaning of 'time stood still/time stand still'. Could you please explain and give me some example how to use?

    Re: time stood still

    Have you never had those moments that seem like they last forever?

    That moment between "And the Oscar goes to..." and the person's name is announced probably feels like an eternity to the people who were nominated. For them, time wasn't moving like it usually does. It felt like time stood still. Each second that ticks by feels like an hour.
