As if award shows couldn’t get any crazier, here comes another stunt! In an article from Daily Mail, a German award show, The Goldene Kamera, gave an award to Ryan Gosling. However, the man who accepted the award was a Ryan Gosling look-a-like, who really didn’t look like Gosling at all!
Here was the set up: two comedians named Joko Winterscheidt and Klaas Heufer-Umlauf set up a fake agency stating they could get Ryan Gosling to the award show on the grounds that he wins an award. The show gave the green light to give an award to Gosling. Even the host for the evening, Steven Gaetjen, was so excited to introduce Ryan Gosling. When he did, everyone was shocked who came out.
The man, who was obviously NOT Ryan Gosling, came to stage and gave a short speech. “Good evening, I am Ryan Gosling!’ he declares in a broad German accent. I dedicate this award to Joko and Klass, thank you very much. There is a saying in Hamburg, which is, ‘bye, bye!” before swiftly making his way off stage.
The horror on actors/actresses faces such as Nicole Kidman, Jane Fonda, and Colin Farrell were priceless.
