Despite the fact that many people have "accused" Gosling of just having two facial expressions, he has consistently shown that he is a diverse performer. Of course, this doesn't diminish his talent; in fact, it may help the actor's chances of receiving an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor in 2024. 

Gosling has already received praise from critics for his roles in La La Land and Half Nelson, making the list of top actors in both two movies.

Barbie and Oppenheimer, which has earned $1.43 billion to date, has astounded moviegoers everywhere. 

The Gerwig and Nolan wives contributed to the cinema problem that started with the Covid-19 period, when this business, for obvious reasons, stopped to provide cash after the general closure of "non-essential" institutions at that historical time.
