His breakthrough role came the following year, when he starred in the provocative independent drama "The Believer," which won the Grand Jury Prize at the 2001 Sundance Film Festival. His performance garnered him rave reviews and industry-wide attention. Gosling's portrayal of a virulent anti-Semite who is revealed to be Jewish brought him his first Independent Spirit Award nomination, as well as a London Film Critics' Circle Award nomination and the Best Foreign Actor Award from the Russian Film Critics Guild. He continues to be noticed as "one of the most exciting actors of his generation," as declared by Manohla Dargis, critic for The New York Times.

He was awarded the Male Breakthrough Performance Award from the National Board of Review, and won Best Actor Awards from both the Seattle and Stockholm International Film Festivals.

Gosling's penchant to take on intricate and complex characters earned him the lead and title role in "The United States of Leland," opposite Kevin Spacey and Don Cheadle. Subsequently, he starred in the blockbuster romantic drama "The Notebook," followed by Marc Forster's "Stay," opposite Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts, starred opposite Anthony Hopkins in the thriller "Fracture" as well as the lead in "All Good Things."
