La La Land has officially made Hollywood history.
La La Land took the 2017 Golden Globes by storm, coming out on top in all 7 of the categories the musical-comedy was nominated in. The flick starring Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling officially broke the record for the most Golden Globes won by any movie, a record previously held by 1975’s One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and 1978’s Midnight Express.
As for awards won, La La Land dominated the following categories: Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy, Best Actor, Musical or Comedy (Ryan Gosling), Best Actress, Musical or Comedy (Emma Stone), Best Motion Picture Director (Damien Chazelle), Best Motion Picture Screenplay (Damien Chazelle), Best Original Score (Justin Hurwitz) and Best Original Song (“City of Stars”).
When the entire cast took the stage to accept the evening’s top honor producer Fred Berger couldn’t contain his excitement.
“This is so insane, I can’t even tell you,” he told the audience. “I promise you, six years ago when we started working on this movie, the idea of making an L.A.-set musical was an utter fantasy. Standing here tonight is more surreal than I could possibly describe.”
Emma expressed her own disbelief after winning big. “I have to start by thanking my amazing mom. Thank you, mom, for everything. I moved here 13 years ago this week, and without my mom and my dad and my brother, who has put up with me his whole life, thank you, Spence, you’re the best.”
Ryan Gosling delivered quite possibly the sweetest acceptance speech in awards history with a shoutout to wife Eva Mendes and their two daughters.
Now that award season is upon us, who knows what else La La Land might win?
