This is bizarre! A Ryan Gosling look-a-like showed up to accept an award at Germany’s Goldene Kamera Awards and A-listers looked super confused. See the hilarious video here!
What just happened? While awards shows are known for their unexpected moments, (we’re still looking at you Oscars 2017), this one definitely goes down as one of the weirdest. During Germany’s Goldene Kamera Awards, Ryan Gosling, 36, was announced to be coming onto the stage, only it wasn’t the La La Land star at all. Host for the night Steven Gaetjen introduced, “one of the hottest stars in Hollywood… the one and only, Ryan Gosling.”
A man came dancing out onto the stage who bore a passing resemblance to Ryan as everyone in the audience from Nicole Kidman, 49, Jane Fonda, 79, and Colin Farrell, 40, looked on super confused. “Good evening, I am Ryan Gosling!” a man with a German accent announced before adding, “I dedicate this award to Joko and Klass, thank you very much. There is a saying in Hamburg, which is, ‘bye, bye!” before he left the stage. Comedians Joko Winterscheidt and Klaas Heufer-Umlauf were credited with the hilarious bit with the help of Munich cook Ludwig Lehner, who was the Ryan look-a-like. Host Steven then apologized, saying there had been a mistake and that can happen during live broadcasts. Reportedly, security will revamp their procedures after the incident, according to The Daily Mail.
We would like to think the real Ryan Gosling would have had a sense of humor about this. The actor even found a reason to laugh over the enormous mix-up at the 2017 Oscars when La La Land was announced that as the winner of Best Picture instead of Moonlight. The actor looked in equal parts disbelief, but still managed a chuckle over what was a rather shocking situation. Twitter found another reason to fall in love with Ryan Gosling over his reaction. “Give ryan gosling an oscar for being the best meme,” one Twitter user wrote. Another user tweeted, “RYAN GOSLING IS LAUGHING AT THE FACT LA LA LAND ACTUALLY LOST BEST PICTURE THIS IS WHY I LOVE RYAN GOSLING.”
