Golden Globes 2017: La La Land leads the pack for eOne

December 18, 2016

It captured the attention of critics and movie buffs the world over, and now La La Land looks set to sing and dance its way to awards season glory.

The upcoming musical from writer/director Damien Chazelle (Whiplash) scored seven Golden Globe nominations, more than any other film this year, including nods for the film’s leads Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling.

But La La Land isn’t the only eOne Film generating awards buzz.

Meryl Streep received a historic 30th Golden Globe nomination for her performance in the hilarious comedy biopic Florence Foster Jenkins, and will also be honoured as the recipient of the Cecil B. DeMille Award for "outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment".

Streep’s Florence Foster Jenkins co-stars Hugh Grant and Simon Helberg also received nominations for their roles, while the film is up for ‘Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy’.

The highly anticipated 20th Century Women, Jackie and Loving also earned nominations for stars Annette Bening, Natalie Portman, and Ruth Negga and Joel Edgerton respectively, while Viggo Mortensen is in the running for his role in Captain Fantastic.
