Hollywood actor Ryan Gosling win the Best Actor Award for The La La Land in the category of music and comedy at the Golden Globes Awards 2017. When the actor came on stage he acknowledged the award like every other person does. He says, “You don’t get to be up here without standing on the shoulders of a mountain of people.” One would wonder that Ryan meant taking help from working fathers and other crucial members of the family but When he said this, Ryan hinted at his wife Eva Mendes. The actor dedicated the award to his wife and thanked her for everything. Eva, who is mother to Ryan’s two daughters, was his sole support all the while.

He at first joked that , “This isn’t the first time I’ve been mistake with Ryan Reynolds, but it’s getting out of hand.” Later, he took a serious mode and in his acceptance speech, Ryan said, “While I was singing and dancing and playing piano and having one of the best experiences I 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, there would surely be someone else up here other than me today. So sweetheart, thank you.” (ALSO READ: Priyanka Chopra sizzles at Golden Globe Awards 2017, reveals her experience of being a presenter at the Awards night!)
