    'La La Land' dazzles and makes history at the Golden Globes

    The musical "La La Land" flew high and made history in the 74th edition of the Golden Globes, having the film with the highest number of prizes, a total of seven, all that he strived for.

    "La Land" won the best comedy or musical award, the best director (Damien Chazelle), the best actor (Ryan Gosling), the best actress (Emma Stone), the best script, Justin Hurwitz.

    These seven trophies are the best record ever made in Golden Globes history, surpassing the six awards of 'Someone flew over the Cuckoo's Nest' (1975). "Let us dream more urgently, lives fervently and loves deeper," said Mark Platt, producer of the film, collecting the statuette for the best film.

    "La La Land", a dream becomes true
    The film tells the story of Mia (Emma Stone), a young, aspiring actress and Sebastian (Ryan Gosling), a devoted jazzmusician who meets in Los Angeles and tries to make her dreams come true.

    "This film is for the dreamer," Stone said after the first Golden Globe of his career.

    But the feeling came unexpectedly with the dedication of Gosling to the deceased brother of his wife, the actress of the Cuban origin Eva Mendes. "While I was singing, dancing and playing the piano, my wife raised our daughter, was pregnant with our second child and tried to help her brother in his fight with cancer. Love, thank you," said the Canadian who dedicated the award to Juan Carlos Mendes, who died in April.

    Chazelle, 31, triumphed twice with the prizes for best director and best script. "Thanks to my parents to believe in me when I told them I wanted to make films at the age of three," the director remembers.

    The other winners of the night
    In addition, Casey Affleck was the best dramatic actor before Denzel Washington, Andrew Garfield, Joel Edgerton (Loving), and Viggo Mortensen ("Fantastic Captain").

    On the woman's side it was the French Isabelle Huppert ('Elle'), who hit the cat in the water by giving Amy Adams ("The Arrival"), Jessica Chastain ("Miss Sloane"), Natalie Portman Ruth Negga ).

    "Do not let the cinema get to the limit," said the 63-year-old Parisian, who also saw "Elle", the title "Best Foreign Film" against "Divines" (France), "El viajero" (coproduction between France) And Iran), "Toni Erdmann" (Germany) and "Neruda" of Pablo Larraín (Chile).

    "Isabel is the center of the film and it was a wonderful journey to work, thank you for your talent and authenticity," said the Dutch director Paul Verhoeven.

    Another notable comment was the 37-year-old African filmmaker Moonlight Victory as the best dramatic film against "Hasta el último hombre", "Comanchería", "Lion" and "Manchester with a view of the sea". "Go to her and tell your friends," suggested Jenkins from the stage at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles.

    What did not achieve that independent film was the work of Mahershala Ali, favorite in the category of the best supporting actors, a prize that went to recognize Aaron Taylor-Johnson for "Animals at Night" by Tom Ford.
