On the third day of Celeb-mas, Celebuzz gave to me . . . three Ryan Gosling movies!

Let’s face it, 2011 was Ryan Gosling’s year. His name was at the tip of everyone’s tongue as he dominated this summer’s movie circuit with three well-received films. On top of his box office success, this year’s Sexiest Man Alive Bradley Cooper even admitted defeat and proclaimed that Gosling is a better fit for the coveted title.

So, without further ado, Celebuzz celebrates the year’s end with our top 3 moments from RyGos’ 2011 flicks! 

#3 Moment: Stephen Meyers in The Ides of March

Why it’s great: Despite starring alongside big names like George Clooney and Philip Seymour Hoffman, Gosling somehow manages to hold his ground with his subtle acting abilities. Plus, that grin is enough to melt any girl’s heart.

#2 Moment: Jacob Palmer in Crazy, Stupid, Love.

Why it’s great: 3 words — Ryan. Gosling. Shirtless. You’re welcome, world.

#1 Moment: “The Driver” in Drive

 Why it’s great: The film’s famous elevator scene truly has something or everyone. Ladies in the audience swoon over Ryan’s romantic gesture of protecting Carey Mulligan, while the guys revel in the bloody violence that follows as Gosling beats up a hired gunman. Yep, it’s a perfect collision of RyGos goodness.
