Regardless of whether they take home any actual trophies, Ryan Gosling and Justin Timberlake are responsible for a major Oscars victory — of the nostalgia variety. At the 2017 ceremony, Gosling and Timberlake had a mini Mickey Mouse Club reunion that will spur all sorts of '90s feels. In case you forgot, these two stars got their start with the likes of Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, and Mickey Mouse on the TV show. And now, they're reuniting at one of the biggest award shows in Hollywood. Talk about a full-circle moment.
According to IMDb, RyGos and JT appeared on Mickey Mouse Club from 1993 to 1995. There's a reason the '90s are frequently deemed the best decade around, and I think the discovery of these guys' talent has a little something to do with it. This was even before Timberlake was crooning with *NSYNC, or before Gosling became the face of the "Hey, Girl" meme.
As a recap, Timberlake opened this year's Oscars with a performance of "Can't Stop The Feeling!" from the Trolls soundtrack. The track is also nominated for Best Original Song. Meanwhile, Gosling is up for Best Actor for his work in La La Land. But, before either category was actually announced, the two reunited in the glorious snapshot captured below. I can only imagine what they discussed. I'm honestly dying to know.
To highlight how far they've really come, here's a look back at their days hanging out with Mickey.
Unreal, right? I can't handle the cuteness. From overalls to bow ties, these two have really come a long way. Now, if only they'll start acting together again — that would be a nostalgia-filled dream come true.
