It was inevitable – ‘La La Land’ is heading to the West End. After almost picking up Best Picture at last night’s Oscar’s, it looks as though the critically-applauded musical drama is being adapted for the West End.

With awards season in full swing, it was the turn of the Brits last night to take their time in the limelight at the 70th EE British Academy Film Awards last night. Who were the big winners and losers of the night?
The current political climate is so tribal and partisan that it has encouraged Hollywood’s finest to use the platform awards season affords them to voice their views.

Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone literally shimmer opposite each other and are so charming that you have to resist the urge to try and kiss the big-screen while watching, while director Damien Chazelle instils ‘La La Land’ with a breeziness that’s reminiscent of the Golden Age of Hollywood, and composer Justin Hurwitz’s music is just all kinds of divine. ‘La La Land’ has made a huge impact with audiences, too. Damien Chazelle and Justin Hurwitz devised the idea when studying at Harvard University, where Chazelle graduated in 2007, while it was only the success of ‘Whiplash’ and its five Oscar nominations that convinced Lionsgate to put up the money for Chazelle’s vision of the musical over five years later.
In pole position for this year’s prize is ‘La La Land’, a film arriving as much-needed respite following the many shocks, horrors and uncertainties of 2016. ‘La La Land’ is a mug of hot chocolate after getting caught in a sleet storm. It’s a sincere homage to a bygone Hollywood era, and so there are certainly similarities to be drawn with another Oscar-winner – ‘The Artist’, but none favour the 2012 Best Picture winner. What undoes Michel Hazanavicius’ well-meaning ode to silent movies is its knowing winks, and a single line of illusion-cracking dialogue. ‘La La Land’ by contrast is a wholehearted and true resurrection of a long-forgotten form which pays tribute in all the right ways, but is contemporary also, making the genre work for modern audiences but never trampling its legacy.

Emma Stone isn’t really called Emma Stone. That said, her real name isn’t wildly different – it’s Emily Stone – but still, she wants it back nonetheless. Stone had to change her name when she began acting at the age of 16, because there was already an actress in the Screen Actors Guild called Emily Stone. She even tried a few other names out along the way, but they didn’t work out, she revealed in an interview with W Magazine. “To ask a 16-year-old to pick a new name is really an interesting process because I was like ‘I’m going to be Riley. My name is going to be Riley Stone’,” she said. ...
Ryan Gosling’s been a busy man in recent years, but 2016 has only seen him star in one movie – Shane Black’s ‘The Nice Guys’ alongside Russell Crowe – but 2017 just got a whole lot busier. With ‘La La Land’ hitting UK cinemas in early January, the ‘Drive’ actor has ‘Blade Runner 2049’ in post-production, with Terrence Malick’s ‘Weightless’ out in March. With Gosling on board after a relatively quiet stint, fans will be glad to see the Canadian back on the big screen after a number of high profiled roles in ‘Gangster Squad’, ‘Only God Forgives’, and ‘The Big Short’ since since 2013.

Not so in new movie ‘Birth of the Dragon’, which has drawn complaints from Lee’s fans that it sidelines the legendary star in favour of a fictional white guy named Steve. Steve McKee, who’s said to be loosely based on the legendary Hollywood icon Steve McQueen, is played by white American actor Billy Magnussen in George Nolfi’s film, which debuted at the Toronto film festival last month.
