You may remember that this year’s Oscars ceremony ended with a real bang in the form of “La La Land” spending close to 2 minutes on stage accepting the award for Best Picture, that they didn’t win.
And you may remember that one of the stars from “La La Land,” Ryan Gosling, just kind of stood to the side and giggled throughout the ordeal.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Gosling finally shared why he had the giggles– he was just glad no one died.
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 Moonlight won and I was so relieved that I started laughing.
Truthfully, I was also so thrilled that Moonlight won. I know the director [Barry Jenkins] … I’ve worked with them before. It’s such a groundbreaking film, made for a million dollars, and incredible achievement and I’m so happy for them that they were being recognized.
And that’s that.
