    La La Land wins five Bafta awards.

    Post by papa_umau on Mon 13 Feb 2017, 12:10 pm

    Lionsgate’s La La Land won a leading five awards tonight in London at the 70th annual BAFTA Awards including the marquee Best Film category.

    The win was the latest in the Oscar front-runner’s dance through awards season, and capped a night at Royal Albert Hall that saw the Brits spread the love among its nominees. Outside of La La Land, only two other films had more than one win: The Weinstein Company’s Lion and Amazon/Roadside Attractions’ Manchester By The Sea.

    The wife and I went to see La La Land a couple of nights ago and we both enjoyed it tremendously.

    It was generated to look like the old Hollywood musicals with a bit of a twist, and it managed that extremely well.

    After watching this film both my wife and myself thought that it would do well in the Baftas and maybe in the Oscars too.

    For that we are just going to have to wait and see I guess.

    A bit too much of a chick-flick for me Paps.

    Nevertheless, I am sure that it is a great film.

    Maybe I will get it for the wife when it comes out on a DVD.

    I got no chance NOT to take the wife to this film as soon as it was in my local multiplex.

    While I was not looking forward to it, for exactly your reasons Zath, I have to admit that I enjoyed it immensely nevertheless.

    I have been to see it and I thought it was wonderful.

    The guy actor could REALLY play the piano and they could both sing and dance as good as the oldies could.

    Yes my dear they certainly could.

    Columnist Lynn McPherson gave a glowing report on this new phenomena when she said that "La-La Land" was a "feel-good box-office smash" that after winning six Golden Globes, and five Baftas, is tipped to come away with a clutch of statuettes at next week's Oscars. ( It is listed for a possible 14 Oscars at the awards next Sunday ).

    The two new stars Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone have inspired hundreds of people to now go for tap and ballet lessons, and Susan Elena, director of Glasgow's dance HQ, said that "just after Christmas she was thinking of cancelling some of her lessons due to lack of interest, but NOW her dance studios are full to capacity for the near future".

    It is a very long time since a movie musical hit so hard since the demise of the great Holywood movie-machine.
