Ryan Gosling on Sunday won the Golden Globe for best actor in a comedy or musical for the whimsical film “La La Land,” a nostalgic tribute to the Golden Age of Hollywood musicals.
Gosling said, “I just would like to try and thank one person properly, and say that while I was singing and dancing and playing piano and having one the best experiences I’ve 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,” Gosling said in his speech. “If she hadn’t taken all that on so that I could have this experience, would surely be someone else up here other than me to today. Sweetheart, thank you.”
Gosling bested Colin Farrell (“The Lobster”), Hugh Grant (“Florence Foster Jenkins”), Jonah Hill (“War Dogs”) and Ryan Reynolds (“Deadpool”).
