Continuing his winning speech, Ryan expressed gratitude to Eva Mendes who was going through a testing time while the actor was shooting his movie. He said, “You don’t get to be up here without standing on the shoulders of a mountain of people, and there’s just no time to thank everyone I just would like to try and thank one person properly and say that while I was singing and dancing and playing piano and having one of the best experiences I’ve ever had on a film, my lady was raising our daughter, pregnant with our second and trying to help her brother fight his battle with cancer.”

The actor continued, “If she hadn’t have taken all that on so that I could have this experience, it would surely be someone else up here other than me today. So, sweetheart, thank you. To my daughters, Amada and Esmeralda, I love you and if I may I’d like to dedicate this to the memory of her brother, Juan Carlos Mendez.”

Ryan and Eva met on the sets of their movie The Place Beyond the Pines back in 2011 and started dating. They share two daughters together, Amada and Esmeralda. On the work front, Ryan Gosling was last seen in the Barbie movie which went on to become a massive box office success.
