“Every year there’s that one movie that wins all the acclaim, all the awards, all the notices, and seems to suck the air out of the room for everyone else. This year, La La Land is that movie, pulling off a clean sweep of top honors at the Golden Globes, the SAG Awards, the Critics Choice Awards, and the BAFTAs. Next stop: the Oscars, where it’s nominated for a record 14 nominations (tying the record set by All About Eve and Titanic) and is the odds-on favorite for Best Picture, among a whole host of other awards. If and when it wins, it will be the culmination of one big fat La La Land lovefest.

The Damien Chazelle–directed, Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone–starring homage to classic Hollywood movie-musicals has been hailed as returning the bygone genre to its golden-era glory—“at a time when musicals seldom grace the big screen, La La Land is practically a miracle,” one review gushed—and enchanting audiences in that pure, old-fashioned kinda way. “During one musical number, when fireworks start going off in the sky,” swooned the Miami Herald, “you can feel them going off in your head, too.”

But does the movie really deserve all of this hype?”

  1. I don’t know if it is the best among the films nominated this year, but I loved it , I think it is a tribute to the classic musical, with a delicious music and scenery. I left the cinema with the smile in my face.

  2. I agree up to a point: the soundtrack is actually lovely but I think they made too much fuss about it…don´t you?

  3. I saw La la land last Saturday and I honestly expected more, at times I found it boring. But if I had to give the prizes, I’d give them prize for best actor and actress, prize for music, costumes and photography. Nothing else. See you tomorrow.
