"La La Land" Sweeps 74th Golden Globes



The Golden Globes took place last night and I must say that they once again showed how crazy and unpredictable they can get. For instance, the first award of the night went to Aaron Taylor-Johnson for Best Supporting Actor In A Motion Picture for Nocturnal Animals over frontrunner Mahershala Ali. Plus, La La Land not only was the big winner but it swept every category it was nominated for while Isabelle Huppert shook up the Best Actress race by winning the Globe for Best Actress In A Motion Picture-Drama for Elle.

Also, despite not winning any other award, Moonlight still won Best Motion Picture-Drama. With Moonlight winning over Manchester By The Sea, I'd say it's now La La Land's biggest competitor for the Best Picture race. La La Land missing Best Ensemble at the Screen Actors Guild was very critical so Moonlight and even Manchester By The Sea could still be thr dark horse to threaten its thunder.
