Ryan Gosling’s Dramatic Reaction To His “Oscar Snub” Revealed!

Personally, I don’t really understand the idea of an Oscar snub before the awards have even been handed out. I definitely think that the Academy, when faced with a multiple choice selection of possible winners often makes some pretty creatively bankrupt, politically savvy decisions that reflect much more the power of the Hollywood publicity machine and the empty-rhetoric of its moral core than any kind of reflection of talent or quality, and so in that sense one can be snubbed. But if someone didn’t get an Oscar nomination even, it doesn’t really feel like a snub. They just didn’t get one. Game over. End of story. Maybe they didn’t even deserve one! Did we consider that? Let’s move on with our PAINFULLY BRIEF HUMAN LIVES. (Especially this year, with all of the rampant Internet complaints about Oscar snubbage, it seems like some people are just mad that people they genuinely like for one reason or another didn’t get nominated for one of the most prestigious “artistic” awards in the world, and I get that, but it doesn’t speak to the quality of anyone’s actual work anymore than Crash winning for Best Picture had anything to actually say about race in America.) My personal issues aside, there were some actors (and actresses, and writers, and directors) that were not nominated this year but whom the fans believed deserved a nomination, and one of those actors was Ryan Gosling, AKA the reason straight people “accidentally” downloaded GRINDR to their phones. Now, after DAYS of speculation, the reclusive genius has FINALLY broken his LEGENDARY silence and let the world know just how he feels about his “Oscar snub.” E! has the SCOOP:

When asked if he felt snubbed by the lack of a nomination, Ryan said, simply, “No.”

WHOA! DID ANYONE JUST FEEL THE GROUND SHAKE? Powerful stuff. You heard it here second (after E!), folks. So intense. Everyone OK? Let’s sit down. #Celebz
