The Almighty Goz is too good for awards shows (yes, even the Oscars)

He skipped the Golden Globes, and now he’s skipped the Oscars—Ryan Gosling does not care for awards ceremonies anymore. Or at least that’s the impression he’s giving his many fans, who likely lit memorial candles in his absence from last night’s Oscars. Rumour has it he’s still working away on Only God Forgives in Thailand, and Ides of March screenwriter Beau Willimon says that wouldn’t surprise him, as Gosling is a man who “never stops.” But seriously, people need to calm down, because despite his many roles this year, he wasn’t even nominated. We’d choose Thailand too if it meant not having to suffer through actors pretending to be pals over not-witty scripted banter. Ryan Gosling: more than just a pretty face.

Oscars 2012: where in the world is Ryan Gosling? [L.A. Times]

    I can’t believe you put that Ryan is “too good” for the Oscars. He was nominated more than once at the Golden Globes but didn’t go either. He’s been busy filming his new in Thailand and I’m sure he is under a contract and you can’t just leave filming whenever you want and if you are devoted to your work then you wouldn’t want to either. I like him SO much more better than he isn’t into all the spotlight and would rather stick to working. Other people from the Ides of March were not there either, it’s a big deal at all. It the end the Oscars are just a little statue that is givin to you buy random people that you don’t even know. Big deal.
