Can Anything Stop La La Land?


Winning Seven Golden Globes Sunday night, La La Landset a record for the most trophies earned by a single film in the ceremony’s 74-year history. With wins in all the top categories– picture (musical/comedy), director (Damien Chazelle), actor (Ryan Gosling), and actress (Emma Stone), plus three more for screenplay, song, and score– the sherbert-colored song-and-dance delight has established itself as the awards-season front-runner.

On the surface, at least, La La seems like a shoo-in for Oscar gold come Feb. 26. “No one likes to see a runaway winner, but that’s the case this year, just like it was the year of Slumdog Millionaire,” says one veteran Oscar consultant.
