“La La Land” sets a record as the big winner at the Golden Globes

LaLaLand
Last night, the glitziest awards show of the season so far went down, with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announcing their Golden Globe award winners. As always, the HFPA mixed in acclaim for frontrunners with some truly idiosyncratic selections. Yes, voters opted to continue much of the Oscar status quo, but when the HFPA members diverged from what the precursors and potentially the Academy will favor, boy did they ever go off script. All that will be covered in a moment, but just know that this doesn’t really impact the rest of the season that much. Perception of the race? Sure. But the reality? Not so much. The guilds about to announce this week will be of much more importance. Still, it was certainly fun to watch all of this go down yesterday. For those of you wondering, I got ten of the categories right, which isn’t too shabby. After all, there’s only 14 film ones in total…

The most notable part of the evening was seeing La La Land go seven for seven, sweeping in all of their categories, and setting the record for most Golden Globe wins by a single film. The result wasn’t just the film taking Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy and Damien Chazelle scoring in Best Director, but also Chazelle winning Best Screenplay, while Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone took home statues as well, with the former winning the Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy comedy, while the latter was obviously in Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy. That landslide was slightly surprising, if well deserved, but the real shock was Aaron Taylor-Johnson inexplicably upsetting in Best Supporting Actor for his turn in Nocturnal Animals. Don’t even pretend that it means much. Maybe he’ll get some extra buzz, but a surprise nomination? Nope. You’ll see the whole slate below, but just remember to take it all with at least a grain of salt.
