Add another one to the pile: Ryan Gosling just won a Golden Globe for playing the aspiring jazz musician Sebastian in Damien Chazelle’s La La Land.
“This isn’t the first time I’ve been mistaken for Ryan Reynolds, but it’s getting out of hand,” Gosling quipped at the microphone, referring to Reynolds’ competing nomination for Deadpool. But even the power of Marvel couldn’t beat La La Land‘s moment.
“Damien and Emma, this belongs to the three of us,” Gosling said to his director and costar. “I’ll chopped it into three pieces if you want.”
“You don’t get to be up here without standing on the shoulders of a mountain of people,” Gosling added, but there was one in particular he wanted to highlight: His partner Eva Mendes.
Gosling spent much of his speech describing Mendes’s strength and support during the filming of La La Land. He dedicated the award to Mendes’s brother, who passed away in April of 2016.
