Playing Ryan Gosling Reacts to Oscars Nomination, But People Can't Stop Talking About His Creepy Wax Figure!

Ryan Gosling is on his way to winning big at the 89th Annual Academy Awards!

The 36-year-old actor was nominated for an Oscar for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role for La La Land on Tuesday, gushing over the prestigious accomplishment in a statement obtained by ET.

"I'm very grateful to the Academy for recognizing my work in La La Land," Gosling, who stars opposite Emma Stone in the Damien Chazelle-directed musical, explained. "It was a true collaboration, so to see everyone else's wonderful work on the film acknowledged so generously makes it even more special."

This is his second nomination in this category. In 2007, he was nominated for his role in Half Nelson, where he portrayed a drug-addicted junior high school teacher in the inner city. He lost the accolade to Forest Whitaker, who won for The Last King of Scotland.

Although fans were stoked to hear of Gosling's latest Oscar nomination, most were still talking about that creepy wax figure of the heartthrob, which was unveiled at the Madame Tussauds in Berlin, Germany, just one day before the Academy released the full list of nominees. Apparently, the figure even has a heartbeat that guests can hear and feel.

"Why does this Ryan Gosling wax figure look just like Westley [Cary Elwes] from The Princess Bride?," wrote one fan on Twitter.

Another fan asked, "Why would you even attempt to create a wax figure of Ryan Gosling? Failure waiting to happen. #cantrecreateperfection."

And user @whatsyerdamage tweeted what all of us were secretly thinking: "That wax figure looks like every dude your friends tell you looks like Ryan Gosling (but they don't)."

At least the Madame Tussauds in London, England, got it right? They unveiled a much more handsome, true-to-Gosling figure in 2014.
