Ryan Gosling’s Golden Globe scrunchy face
It cost him, at least on this blog, The Best Man at the Globes Awards.
But when his category was called he scrunched up his face. WHY did he have to be the guy who scrunches up his face? I don’t care how hot he looked – and he did, so hot – you lose points with the false modesty. It’s not like he can’t act, you know? It’s not like he’s incapable of keeping a neutral expression for the 5 seconds it takes to pass his name and move on to the next dude.
He scrunched up his face.
And that, that held him back from top spot. It’s forgiveable, sure. Very forgiveable. I’ve forgiven already. But he has also given us reason to hold him to a higher standard. When he falls short of it, well, you have to call it.
PS. In my endless efforts to set him up, will you be mad at me if I say Scarlett Johansson? Consider the common ground. He dated Sandra Bullock, Scarjo and Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Canada… the symmetry of it works. It really does.
PPS. Don't yell at me about these pics. I'm not the one flirting with him. I can't look too. I won't look too long.
