‘La La Land’ Scores at Golden Globes


The 74th annual Golden Gloves offered a glitzy version of musical chairs Sunday night as the top films and TV series of 2016 competed for an early share of awards-season preside.

The musical “La La Land” came in with seven nominations and checked off every box. That broke the Golden Globes record for most wins by a single film, including best motion picture, musical, or comedy. The film earned awards for lead actors Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, and director and writer Damien Chazelle. The film was also honored for best original song and best score, composed by Justin Hurwitz.

As an homage to old Hollywood, “La La Land” has been embraced by the industry as an affirmation of purpose at a time when commercial and cultural relevance of movies is in doubt. Its dance routines and rainbow palette supplied a template for the Globes’ opening number, featuring host Jimmy Fallon, inset, and the nights nominees dancing through a traffic jam of limousines.
