Ryan Gosling Explains His Smirk During Oscars Best Picture Mix-Up
During that famous Best Picture mix-up, as members of the ‘La La Land’ team looked stunned after realizing they didn’t win Best Picture, Ryan Gosling was snapped giggling like a school girl over the whole snafu.
And now we finally know the reason why.
“I was watching people start to have this panicked reaction in the crowd,” he told the Adobe Summit in Las Vegas. “Guys were coming on with headsets and I felt like someone had been hurt.
“I thought there was some kind of medical situation, and I had this worst-case scenario playing out in my head. And then I just heard ‘Moonlight’ won and I was so relieved that I started laughing,” he added.
And even though his film didn’t win the best picture prize, the Golden Globe winner was excited for the ‘Moonlight’ cast and crew.
“But truthfully, I was also so thrilled that ‘Moonlight’ won. I know the director… I’ve worked with them before. It’s such a ground breaking film, made for a million dollars, an incredible achievement, and I’m so happy for them that they were being recognized.”
