During the 2024 Critics' Choice Awards on Sunday, Jan. 14, Barbie actor Ryan Gosling served up by far the best reaction of the night when the song "I'm Just Ken" won the award for best song.

"I'm Just Ken" was nominated alongside two other Barbie songs, “Dance the Night” and "What Was I Made For?", and in addition to Rustin's "Road to Freedom, "Peaches" from The Super Mario Bros. Movie and Wish's "The Wish."

After presenters Bella Ramsey and Anthony Ramos announced the winner, Gosling looked visibly stunned, pausing and giving a deadpanned, perplexed look before eventually celebrating the win alongside his Barbie cast members.

"WAKE UP BABE NEW RYAN GOSLING REACTION JUST DROPPED," one social media user posted. "Ryan Gosling best reaction to an award," another wrote.
