article imageRyan Gosling wins Golden Globe award, delivers touching speech

Actor Ryan Gosling won his first Golden Globe award for "Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy" for his role in "La La Land."
Gosling bested fellow nominees Colin Farrell in The Lobster, Hugh Grant in Florence Foster Jenkins, Jonah Hill in War Dogs and Ryan Reynolds in Deadpool.
In his acceptance speech, Gosling joked that he is often mistaken for nominee Ryan Reynolds. He went on to thank director and writer Damien Chazelle and La La Land actress Emma Stone. "This belongs to the three of us. I will chop it into three pieces if you want," he said, prior to noting that they might fight about who gets which piece of the award, which might tear them apart.
Gosling continued, "You don't get to be up here without standing on the shoulders of a mountain of people." He thanked his "lady," Eva Mendes, in particular, for raising their daughter and being pregnant with their second child, all while helping her brother who was battling cancer. He noted that if she did not carry on all those tasks for the family, it would be somebody else in his place accepting this award instead. Ever-gracious, Gosling thanked his two daughters, Esmeralda and Amada, and went on to dedicate his award to Eva Mendes' late brother Carlos.
His co-star, Emma Stone, also took home the Golden Globe for "Best Actress in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy."
The film La La Land racked up the most nominations at this year's Golden Globe awards, with seven.
