We do hate to admit it, but we don’t actually have a monopoly on Ryan Gosling gushing here at The Hype. This morning, Gerard Butler, Woody Harrelson, Rashida Jones and Sofia Vergara announced the 69th Golden Globe nominations, which revealed that the Almighty Goz could have two shiny statuettes coming his way next month. He’s received a nod for Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical for Crazy Stupid Love, competing with Jean Dujardin in The Artist, Brendan Gleeson in The Guard, Joseph Gordon-Levitt in 50/50 and Owen Wilson in Midnight in Paris. For Best Actor in a Drama, Goz is up for The Ides of March against some of the biggest boys in Hollywood: George Clooney in The Descendants, Leonardo DiCaprio in J. Edgar, Brad Pitt in Moneyball and Michael Fassbender’s penis in Shame. The big award of the night, Best Picture, sees Ides up against The Descendants, The Help, Hugo, Moneyball and War Horse—in short, everything is coming up Goz.

Best Performance by an Actor (Drama): Ryan Gosling vs. Michael Fassbender
While Fassbender has some sizable artistic assets and a gigantic onscreen presence, we think Gosling knows how to use his better. Mostly, however, this is a toss-up between the two most attractive men in Hollywood right now.
Best Performance by an Actor (Comedy): Ryan Gosling vs. Owen Wilson
Nothing funny about this one: Midnight in Paris was a total success and Owen Wilson was legitimately fantastic.
