A-ha! So This Is Why Ryan Gosling Laughed The Whole Way Through That Awkward Oscars Debacle

"I thought there was some kind of medical situation..."

When La La Land was wrongly named the winner of the Best Picture category at this year’s Oscars, everyone felt v awkward, both the cast and audience alike.

The true winner of the award was Moonlight – and while most of the La La Land cast appeared shocked and disappointed, leading man, Ryan Gosling, got a fit of the giggles.

Speaking to People, the 36-year-old revealed, “What really was happening as I was watching, it was surreal anyway, I was watching people start to have this panicked reaction in the crowd and 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, ‘Oh Moonlight won,’ and I was so relieved that I started laughing.”

He added, “But truthfully, I was also so thrilled that Moonlight won, I know the director… I’ve worked with them before. It’s such a groundbreaking film, made for a million dollars, an incredible achievement and I’m so happy for them that they were being recognised.”

N’aawww, Ryan, you sweetheart.
