Worst: A Whole Lotta 'La La Land' Love
La La Land is a solid movie. But it's also something of an award-season gimme, given that the fastest route to a trophy is making a movie that flatters Hollywood. (Also? Entirely too much jazz talk!) Still, you certainly can't deny the charm of Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling; after Gosling's feminist speech, you probably don't want to live in a world where he didn't win Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy. And yet … this definitely is not the movie that should now hold the record for most Globes, for that's worth. Perhaps most objectionable was its Best Screenplay win, beating out Manchester by the Sea, Moonlight and Hell or High Water when a better case could be made for the originality, beauty, or devastation of almost any of those other scripts. La La Land certainly deserved recognition. Just not at the expense of so many other strong films.
