Ryan Gosling Explains His Giggling At The Oscars

Arin Spits / March 24, 2017

We all know about what happened at the 2017 Academy Awards which generated countless memes when the wrong winner was announced for the year’s “Best Picture” award. One of the images captured were of La La Land star, Ryan Gosling, giggling during the whole fiasco. His reasoning though, is as genuine as you’d might expect from a Canadian.


He wasn’t actually laughing because of the mix up, he was just relieved that it wasn’t anything more serious – like a medical situation, a worst-case scenario that he had playing in his mind. Then, when he found out that it was just an announcement error and Moonlight had won, he started laughing in relief.

Gosling was present at the Adobe Summit on Wednesday in Las Vegas and he opened up about his reactions that Oscar night. If he could describe the moment in one word, he would choose “surreal.” He admits that he was thrilled that Moonlight won the award for Best Picture. He’s worked with director Barry Jenkins before and is happy that they were being recognized. The film was groundbreaking and only made for a million dollars.


Can anything really make this guy mad?
