Along with Chazelle, the series will be executive produced by…

    Oscar night blunder to be investigated as 'Matt Damon lookalike' blamed for historic flub

    Bosses of the Oscars are to launch an official investigation over what happened on Sunday night’s ceremony, after an envelope blunder led presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway to announce the wrong winner for Best Picture. PricewaterhouseCoopers, the accountancy firm which coordinates the voting and prize-giving logistics, has taken the unusual step of issuing a second apology, detailing who was to blame for the blunder. “PwC takes full responsibility for the series of mistakes and breaches of established protocols during last night’s Oscars,” the new statement reads.

    The greatest reactions to the La La Land/Moonlight Oscar gaffe

    While the Oscars of 2017 will be remembered for, quite literally, one thing, the ‘Moonlight’/’La La Land’ debacle can also perhaps be summed up in a single image. And it’s of Ryan Gosling’s face. Holding his hand to his mouth to try and keep from bursting out laughing, the ‘La La Land’ star looked very much how everyone was feeling. It seemed to say ‘someone’s going to get fired’, after ‘La La Land’ was mistakenly named Best Picture by Warren Beatty, when the winner was actually ‘Moonlight’. Of course, it’s been hailed on Twitter as being perhaps the quintessential image of the evening. ...

    La La Land is the joyous, vibrant film we need in 2017

    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.
