London Native Ryan Gosling nominated for Oscar

London, ON, Canada / 106.9 The X

London Native, Ryan Gosling, was nominated for the 89th Annual Academy Awards today in Beverly Hills.

Gosling has received the nomination for his performance in LaLaLand– a musical film that fans are raving about. Gosling is nominated for Best Actor alongside his co-star, Emma Stone, who is nominated for Best Actress.

Late night talk-show host, Jimmy Kimmel, will be hosting the Oscar ceremony on February 26th, a first for Kimmel who has never hosted a large awards show of its kind.

This year’s nominees include many more faces of colour. Last year, the Oscar ceremony created a lot of controversy with the lack of diversity. The Best Supporting Actress category alone has three women of colour, which is a change from last year’s trending #OscarsSoWhite.

London’s very own, Gosling, has some competition for his Best Actor nomination:

  1. Casey Affleck, Manchester By the Sea
  2. Andrew Garfield, Hacksaw Ridge
  3. Ryan Gosling, La La Land
  4. Viggo Mortensen, Captain Fantastic
  5. Denzel Washington, Fences

The 89th Academy Awards will take place on February 26th at 8PM.
