And the Golden Globe goes to…

'La La Land' wins all seven of the Golden Globes it was nominated for

Jimmy Fallon taking part in the opening number for the 2017 Golden Globe Awards Show

Santa Monica Boulevard and Wilshire Boulevard are two of the busiest East/West thoroughfares on the West side of the Los Angeles area.  They intersect near the westernmost part of Beverly Hills and at that intersection sits the Beverly Hilton Hotel.  Known for a number of things, it has been the home of the annual Golden Globe Awards presentation since 1961.

The 74th Golden Globe Awards were hosted by Jimmy Fallon.  The opening number was a musical tribute to La La Land, perhaps a sign of things to come.  Nominated for seven Golden Globes, it won them all.  They included Best Picture Drama, Best Actor Drama for Ryan Gosling and Best Actress for Emma Stone.  The film’s writer/director Damien Chazelle won awards for Best Screenplay and Best Director.  With La La Land winning for Best Comedy/Musical and Moonlight winning for Best Drama, it looks like those two films will be fighting it out at this year’s Academy Awards.
