Last night Ryan Gosling won Best Actor in a “Comedy or Musical” category at the Golden Globes. Considering the dazzling nature of his performance in La La Land — involving singing, dancing, and romancing — this was highly deserved. Wins included Best Comedy or Musical, Best Actress in A Comedy Or Musical (Emma Stone), Best Director and Best Screenplay. The Canadian actor, ever charming, never puts a foot wrong off the screen either, using his time on the podium to praise his partner Eva Mendes. As he says:
“While I was singing and dancing and playing piano and having one of the best experiences I ever had on a film, my lady was raising our daughter, pregnant with our second, and trying to help her brother fight his battle with cancer. If she hadn’t have taken all that on so that I could have this experience, there would surely be someone else up here other than me today. So sweetheart, thank you.” aww, bless.
Gosling’s words, delivered in his characteristically heartfelt fashion, showed him to be the best feminist ally around, making this award even more deserving. Yet this isn’t the first time he has been an awesome feminist. His whole career is characterised by calling out patriarchal society. Scroll on below for a collection of his best moments.
