Unless you're one of those people who laughs when they're relieved or nervous, then you probably won't understand.
For the rest of us who do laugh when we're uncomfortable -- WE ARE JUST LIKE RYAN GOSLING!
AND WE ALL LOOK LIKE THIS WHEN WE TAKE OFF OUR SHIRTS.
Anyway, besides bragging about what I have packed underneath this T-shirt, I want to talk about the Oscars again.
Mainly, I want to discuss what was quiet possibly one of the worst secondhand embarrassments of my life:
"La La Land" being pronounced the winner of Best Picture because of a card mix-up, when really, "Moonlight" won the award.
Ugh, excuse me while I dig my own GRAVE. I hate this.
While most of the cast and crew of "La La Land" looked a mix of confused and heartbroken, the camera focused for a mere second on Ryan Gosling -- who apparently thought the whole thing was fucking HI-larious.
But he wasn't giggling because of the situation -- he was giggling because he was so gosh darn relieved.
In an interview at the Adobe Summit, Gosling 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.
I TOTALLY GET IT, RYAN. I TOO ALWAYS JUMP TO THE WORST POSSIBLE SCENARIO IN MY HEAD.
Whenever I hear anyone laugh in public, I assume they're laughing at me.
Whenever anyone calls me on the telephone, I assume someone I know has died.
Whenever I take off in an airplane, I assume it is going to crash.
You know, quirky stuff.
Thanks, Ryan. I needed to hear that right now...
Gosling went on to say,
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 recognized.
