Golden Globes: Off to La La Land
By the time La La Land won a record-setting seventh Golden Globe last Sunday, “it was hard not to feel that Holly wood had fallen in love with yet another intoxicating vision of itself,” said Justin Chang in the Los Angeles Times. Though “ravishing,” the big-screen musical starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone racked up a couple of suspect wins, making the Hollywood-set romance appear bound for Oscar glory. Still, the Globes judges deserve credit for awarding Best Drama honors to Moonlight and—in “a magnificent upset”— naming Isabelle Huppert as best actress in a drama. .

Best picture, drama: Moonlight
Best picture, musical or comedy: La La Land
