Sure, there were a ton of good looking people at the 2012 Golden Globe Awards, but there was one very glaring absence: double nominee Ryan Gosling.

The super-stud was nominated for Best Actor in both the Comedy and Drama categories, but was a no-show on the big night. Thankfully, his "Ides of March" co-star, Globes winner George Clooney, cleared things up in the press room.

"He's in Thailand or something, and you know what you do in Thailand," he said, according to our friends at BuzzSugar. "He wrote me a nice email this morning and I found out that he wasn't able to be here. It happens, you gotta work. He's gotta make a living — he's a struggling actor."

Clooney had a few other great quips backstage after his big win — read 'em all at BuzzSugar.
