Ryan Gosling knows how to stay cool, even through chaotic situations. Take his reaction to that massive Oscars fiasco earlier this year. When it was announced that Moonlight had actually won the Academy Award for Best Picture—while the cast of La La Land was on stage, already giving their acceptance speeches—the news was met with shock and confusion; but Gosling remained off to the side, cool as a cucumber, chuckling at the madness unfolding around him.

Gosling's bemused reaction went viral after the awards ceremony, but the Oscar-nominated actor elaborated his response in a recent interview with the Associated Press.

"What can you say?" he said. "I was very happy for Moonlight at the same time. It's such a wonderful film. It's great to see such great work acknowledged."

Nearly a month after the Academy Awards blunder, the actor is currently promoting his latest film, Song to Song, another music movie. Though it's not quite La La Land, Gosling does lend his voice to the soundtrack once again. If this film ends up winning any awards, let's hope they're announced correctly this time; but if not, we know he'll have the perfect reaction.
