Ryan Gosling Explains His Giggle During Oscar Fiasco

The 'La La Land' actor suggests that the flub wasn't the 'worst-case' scenario he thought would happen that night.

AceShowbiz - Among "La La Land" stars and crew who were shocked during Oscar fiasco last February, %cRyan Gosling%'s reaction was regarded to be the lightest one. The 36-year-old actor was spotted giggling over the flub, sparking speculation that he might find the situation funny instead of shocking.

In an interview with Adobe CMO Ann Lewnes at the Adobe Summit in Las Vegas on Wednesday, March 22, Gosling finally explained the reason behind the giggle. Apparently, the "La La Land" actor felt that the flub wasn't the "worst-case scenario" he thought would happen that night.

"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," said Gosling.

"I thought there was some kind of medical situation, and I had this worst-case scenario playing out in my head," he added. He went on saying, "And then I just heard 'Moonlight' won and I was so relieved that I started laughing."

Gosling said that he didn't have a hard feeling over the fact that "Moonlight" won Best Picture. "Truthfully, I was also so thrilled that 'Moonlight" won. I know the director [Barry Jenkins] … I've worked with them before," said Gosling. "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," he added.

At the 89th Academy Awards, veteran actors %cWarren Beatty% and %cFaye Dunaway% mistakenly announced "La La Land" for Best Picture, whereas the accolade was supposed to be presented to "Moonlight". Many people said that it was the biggest blunder in Oscar history. Best Actress %cEmma Stone%, who won the nod for her performance in "La La Land", admitted that it was "the most horrible moment" in her life.

Host %cJimmy Kimmel%, meanwhile, said that he was "trying really hard not to laugh" that night. "I'm standing there [on stage] like an idiot, feeling bad for these guys, but also trying really hard not to laugh, to be honest," he said.
