Ryan Gosling brought some deadpan fun to the 2024 Critics' Choice Awards.

The actor, 43, appeared to be stunned when his Barbie movie song “I’m Just Ken” won best song at the ceremony on Sunday — and the internet is loving the dubious look he flashed the camera.

As presenters Bella Ramsey and Anthony Ramos named the power ballad as the winner, Gosling was seen to raise his eyebrows and look taken aback at the news. 

He then stood up and appeared to jokingly shake his head in disbelief while applauding writers Mark Ronson and Andrew Wyatt as they took the stage to accept the award.

Ronson, 48, went on to address the Ken actor in the audience and told him, “Ryan Gosling, this is as much your award as ours. You made the audience fall in love with this song with your matchless performance, so thank you."

The music producer then thanked director Greta Gerwig and her co-writer, husband Noah Baumbach, as well as Barbie actress and co-producer Margot Robbie.

"The fact that you carved out 11 minutes for this prog-rock, power-ballad, dream-ballet, shred fest so the boys could cry and hold hands a little too, we're really forever in your debt for that," Ronson said of Gerwig, 40.

The best song category included two other songs from the Barbie soundtrack, Barbie: The Album: Dua Lipa’s “Dance the Night” and Billie Eilish’s “What Was I Made For?" The other nominees were The Super Mario Bros. Movie song “Peaches,” sung by Jack Black, Lenny Kravitz’s “Road to Freedom” from Rustin and the Julia Michaels-penned “This Wish” from Disney’s Wish.
