'La La Land' Spins a Record-Breaking Night at the Golden Globes
It seems everybody was ready for something fresh and new, and ironically that "fresh and new" offering calls back to an era that's more or less been lost to modern cinema. Damien Chazelle's La La Land earned seven awards at Sunday night's Golden Globe awards, and was the topic on everyone's lips throughout.
The film's record breaks that of Midnight Express and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. That just shows you just how rare it is that a film like this comes along. The most recent film to win more than three awards (let along seven) was The Social Network.
La La Land won the following awards in what's more or less a landslide: Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy, Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy (Ryan Gosling), Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy (Emma Stone), Best Director - Motion Picture (Damian Chazelle), Best Screenplay, Best Original Song - Motion Picture (City of Stars), and Best Original Score - Motion Picture (Justin Hurwitz).
