“La La Land” Sets New Golden Globes Record, “Moonlight” Wins Best Drama

I called that it was going to be a big night for La La Land, but I didn’t anticipate it being this big. The Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling led musical won all seven of the awards it was up for, including Screenplay and Director which many thought could have gone to Kenneth Lonergan or Barry Jenkins.

Both leads won in their respective acting categories, delivering pretty winning speeches. But then again, it’s easy to forget that La La Land was a film made for the Golden Globes. And while it’s entirely possible it could sweep in a similar fashion at the Oscars (save for Best Actor), I think heading into the Guilds it will face stiffer competition from films like MoonlightManchester By The SeaFences and Hidden Figures, the latter two are picking up a lot of steam as they expand wide in theaters. 

Other noteworthy takeaways are Casey Affleck winning over Denzel Washington in Actor (Drama) and Isabelle Huppert once again beating Natalie Portman in Actress (Drama). Huppert’s film won Foreign Language Motion Picture, whereas Portman was the lone recipient of nominations for Jackie. That’s a handicap going into the SAG awards; Huppert isn’t nominated, but Stone is. 

The most shocking event of the night had to be Aaron Taylor-Johnson winning over Mahershala Ali in Supporting Actor. This would be only the second award Ali lost thus far. Johnson isn’t nominated at the Screen Actor’s Guild though, so I think this was a case of the Golden Globes just being the Golden Globes, aka insane. 

On the tv side of things, Tracee Ellis Ross became the first black woman since Debbie Allen in 1983 to win the Globe for Best Actress in a Television Series (Comedy or Musical). Donald Glover won for his performance in Atlanta and the show as a whole, while Sarah Paulson picked up another award for her performance in American Crime Story.
