‘La La Land’ shatters Golden Globes Record for Most Wins by a single Film
What was bound to be great night for La La Land turned magical as the acclaimed musical hit all the high notes and smashed records at the Golden Globes, taking home seven awards — a new record.
The movie-musical production from Lionsgate Studios starring Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling took home the statuettes in every single one of the categories it was nominated in, including Best Actress for Stone, Best Actor for Gosling, and Best Director for Chazelle.
La La Land, a movie six years in the making, follows the story of a young musician (Ryan Gosling) and aspiring actress (Stone) who pursue their dreams and fall in love—all the while singing, dancing and, playing the piano (That’s just Ryan).
Audiences, critics and just about everyone else can’t stop going on and on about this film, lauded as one of the most refreshing and original of its kind in recent times. As far as box office is concerned, it has made a whopping $440 million on a budget of just $30 million.
La La Land beat the previous record for most Golden Globes won by a single film, an achievement, that was shared by 1975’s masterpiece One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and the 1978 classic Midnight Express, each with six wins apiece.
