Ryan Gosling is up for “Best Actor” for his role in “LA LA Land,” a movie that has been nominated for a record tying 14 Oscars this weekend in Hollywood.
I have always referred to Ryan as a native of “London, Ontario,” but I got an email from a native of Cornwall who corrected me.
Ryan was only ‘born’ in London, but indeed did grow up in the hometown of “Newsy Lalonde.”
And he shopped for records on Pitt Street!
Gosling would be the first Canadian to win “Best Actor” in Hollywood, five others have been nominated.
Three Canadian Actresses have won in that category including Mary Pickford in the late 20’s.
So this would be a big deal.
The 89th Academy Awards Show will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel on Sunday night.
Watch a young Ryan Gosling show what he likes to do in his hometown of Cornwall, Ontario
