‘La La Land’ breaks record with 7 wins

By Kam Williams

La La Land took home 7 Golden Globes Sunday, eclipsing the record shared by Midnight Express and One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. The magical musical chronicling the stormy relationship of a couple struggling to make it in Hollywood prevailed in every category in which it was nominated, including Damien Chazelle for Best Director, Best Picture (Musical or Comedy), Ryan Gosling for Best Actor (Musical or Comedy) and (Emma Stone) for Best Actress (Musical or Comedy).

The historic wins establish La La Land as the prohibitive favorite in the Oscars Sweepstakes, despite the not so subtle pressure on members of the Academy to make up for its failure to nominate any minorities in the acting categories the past two years in a row. While Denzel Washington (Fences), Ruth Negga (Loving) and Mahershala Ali (Moonlight) failed in their bid to land Golden Globes, several Blacks did succeed, including Viola Davis (Fences) for Best Supporting Actress, and Tracee Ellis Ross and Donald Glover (aka Childish Gambino) for the TV sitcoms Black-ish and Atlanta, respectively.

Moonlight, the gritty, coming-of-age adventure about growing upblack and gay in the ghetto, had a disappointing night, only winning for Best Drama among its five nominations. Nevertheless, it still emerges from the evening as La La Land’s most likely competitor for the Best Picture Oscar.

The Golden Globes were hosted by Jimmy Fallon who peaked at the start of the program during a charming, song-and-dance parody of La La Land’s opening number. Otherwise, Fallon was fairly boring, as he characteristically avoided taking potshots at any of the celebrities in attendance.

However, Lifetime Achievement Award-recipient Meryl Streep did not hold back in expressing her disgust for Donald Trump’s “instinct to humiliate.” Of course, it didn’t take long for the thin-skinned President-elect to respond via Twitter that Meryl is a “Hillary flunky” and “one of the most-overrated actresses in Hollywood.”

It’ll be interesting to see whether Trump’s derisive tweet affects the perennial Oscar-nominee’s odds of garnering another nod for Florence Foster Jenkins.
