Ryan Gosling has finally explained why he laughed onstage during this year’s Oscars mishap, when La La Land was accidentally announced as Best Picture over real winner Moonlight.
"I thought there was some kind of medical situation, and I had this worst case scenario playing out in my head,” Gosling recalled during an appearance at the Adobe Summit in Las Vegas on Wednesday.
“And then I just heard, 'Oh Moonlight won,' and I was so relieved that I started laughing.”
Gosling went on to explain that he was thrilled for the Moonlight team.
“It’s such a groundbreaking film, made for a million dollars, and incredible achievement,” he added.
“And I’m so happy for them that they were being recognized."
