Ryan Gosling will be a no-show at this year’s Golden Globes.

The actor was all over movie screens this past year in such films as Drive, Crazy, Stupid, Love, and The Ides of March. He is a double nominee at this year’s awards for his roles in Crazy, Stupid, Love and The Ides of March, but will skip the Ricky Gervais-hosted ceremony in favor of one of his latest film projects, which has him out of the country.

"He's working out of the country,” Gosling’s rep confirmed to People.

According to the report, Gosling is skipping out on the ceremony to film another movie directed by Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn called Only God Forgives, a mixed martial arts movie that is set in Bangkok.

Although Gosling will be a no-show, ladies have plenty of other actors to swoon over their televisions about. George Clooney and Brad Pitt, who are both presenters as well as nominees, Jake Gyllenhaal, and the reigning Sexiest Man Alive, Bradley Cooper, will all appear at the awards.

The Golden Globe Awards, hosted for the second year in a row by Ricky Gervais, airs live tonight, Sunday, Jan. 15 at 8p.m. EST on NBC.
