It’s no surprise that all eyes were on Ryan Gosling at the 2017 Oscars this past Sunday. But apparently there’s someone else in the Gosling clan who’s also attracting major attention. Since her appearance on the red carpet with her bro, Twitter has been fascinated by Gosling’s sister Mandi.

She’s accompanied her famous younger brother to award ceremonies before, but for some reason, this year she captured the hearts and minds of the Twitter-sphere in a big way. And tbh, we’re not surprised. The 40-year-old producer and casting director wore a dazzling gold gown and looked every bit at home in the glitz and glam of the Dolby Theater.

And the internet is now bowing down.

We hope that Mandi isn’t feeling TOO overwhelmed by all this crazy attention!

She seems quite private and noticeably absent from social media, although there is this video on her YouTube channel of her singing in New York…so she’s not too unfamiliar with the spotlight. And FYI, she’s a good singer! Hint: More videos, Mandi?

Again, that Gosling gene. It’s special.

It’s nice to meet you, Mandi, and we hope that you are okay with being recognized on the street from this day forward.

There are a number of other celebrities who brought their siblings to the Oscars in the past, including Emma Stone and her brother Spencer (this year!), and Jennifer Lawrence and her two brothers Ben and Blaine. It’s a truly great night for a family affair, and we hope Mandi joins again next time!
