It's no wonder Ryan Gosling tops our 2011 Entertainer of the Year list -- just look at him!
This year was a stellar one for the handsome actor's career, as he starred in three very distinctive and character-driven films. First, Gosling finally tried his hand at comedy -- and displayed those gorgeous abs -- in the romantic dramedy "Crazy, Stupid Love," mixing it up with comic talents Steve Carell and Emma Stone.
Next, he starred in the tense indie gem "Drive," playing a loner stunt driver and part-time wheelman who finally finds a connection with a single mom (Carey Mulligan) just as his two worlds collide.
Finally, Gosling tackled the political drama genre in "The Ides of March," portraying an idealistic campaign manager for a presidential candidate (George Clooney) who learns some hard lessons about his chosen profession.
