Winning a coveted movie award can be an incredible experience, but even if you lose, you can still make an impression for the viewers at home. That's what happened at tonight's Golden Globes ceremony with Ryan Reynolds. Losing the Best Actor in a Motion Picture -- Musical or Comedy to Ryan Gosling, Reynolds still managed to snag attention to himself for a little bit by making out with Andrew Garfield nearby.
As you can see in the moment above (captured by Buzzfeed's Jarett Wieselman), Ryan Reynolds didn't hesitate to plant a smooch on Andrew Garfield after losing to Ryan Gosling, and Garfield look perfectly okay. This sudden display of affection drew a laugh from those nearby, including Reynolds' wife and fellow actor, Blake Lively, as well as surely from plenty of viewers at home. If only all the losers in every category could always react this lightheartedly and hilariously, be it at the Golden Globes, Emmys, Academy Awards or any one of these award shows. By the way, this also technically counts as Deadpool making out with Spider-Man. I can't remember off the top of my head if this has happened in the comics, but since it will never happen on the big screen, this will work just fine.
While superhero movies don't often get nominated in the prestige categories at these awards shows, Ryan Reynolds was (appropriately) nominated for his performance as Wade Wilson in Deadpool, a movie that languished in development hell for five years, but arguably made the biggest splash of the superhero movies last year. Unfortunately for Reynolds, he wasn't able to beat his fellow Ryan, Mr. Gosling, who played jazz pianist Sebastian Wilder in the acclaimed La La Land. It's a shame that Deadpool himself didn't get to take home a Golden Globe this year, but at least Reynolds did what he does best: channel the Merc with the Mouth perfectly. In this case, that meant making out with Andrew Garfield as a consolation prize. Speaking of Garfield, he drew his own recognition at this year's Golden Globes ceremony for his turn as Desmond T. Doss in Hacksaw Ridge, but he also failed to come out on top in Best Actor in a Motion Picture -- Drama, losing to Casey Affleck for Manchester by the Sea.
Andrew Garfield can currently be seen alongside Adam Driver and Liam Neeson and Martin Scorsese's Silence, while Ryan Reynolds can next be seen in co-starring with Jake Gyllenhaal and Rebecca Ferguson in Life. Deadpool 2 is also slated to hit theaters sometime in 2018.
