Ryan Gosling pays tribute to Debbie Reynolds

Ryan Gosling, Debbie Reynolds

Actor Ryan Gosling's latest release La La Land was honored with the Vanguard Award at the annual ceremony of Palm Springs International Film Festival. The actor picked up the award alongside director Damien Chazelle and music composer Justin Hurwitz. Gosling took the opportunity to pay tribute to legendary Hollywood actress Debbie Reynolds.

“I wish I could have said this in person but I’d like to thank Debbie Reynolds for her wonderful career of work,” Gosling said. “She was an inspiration to us every day. We watched ‘Singing in the Rain’ every day for inspiration, a truly unparalleled talent so thank you to her for all that inspiration,” he added.

Ryan thanked her for inspiring his work in the musical La La Land.

Reynolds passed away on December 28 just a day after her daughter Carrie Fisher died due to a heart attack. The 84-year-old actress was a popular figure in the Hollywood musicals in the 1950's and 1960's. Her notable performances came in the movies 'Singin in the Rain' and 'Unsinkable Molly Brown'.

Gosling's La La Land is also inspired by old school musicals and has been collecting accolades from all corners. La La Land is also one of the favorites going into the awards season.
