Ryan Gosling The Golden Globes Win And Speech 2017
A journalist has ridiculed Ryan Gosling's heartfelt acceptance speech at the Golden Globes - do you think there is anything wrong with it?
The La La Land star paid an emotional tribute to his wife Eva Mendes for supporting him.
As he picked up the award for Best Actor, he said: "You don’t get to be up here without standing on the shoulders of a mountain of people and there’s just no time to thank everyone I just would like to try and thank one person properly.
"While I was singing and dancing and playing piano and having one of the best experiences I’ve ever had on a film, my lady was raising our daughter, pregnant with our second and trying to help her brother fight his battle with cancer.
"If she hadn’t have taken all that on so that I could have this experience, it would surely be someone else up here other than me today. So, sweetheart, thank you."
But not everyone liked his speech. Guardian journalist Hadley Freeman tweeted: "Good Kermit: Admire Meryl's powerful speech at the Globes!
Bad Kermit: Watch Ryan Gosling's gnnnnh one 10 more times."
Shelagh Fogarty is asking: What do you think of Ryan Gosling's speech? Do you think it is heartfelt, or sexist?
