"La La Land" Leads 2017 Golden Globe Awards Nominations, See Full List! 


Fresh from its success at the Critics' Choice Awards where it took home eight trophies including best picture, Damien Chazelle's "La La Land" continues to dominate the award season with a strong showing at the Golden Globe nominations receiving seven nods. Don Cheadle, Laura Dern, and Anna Kendrick presented the nominations this morning at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Because of the Golden Globes' multi-genre categories (comedy and drama), some films made strong showing at the nominations such as "Florence Foster Jenkins," "Nocturnal Animals," even "Deadpool!" That's a great thing!

We'll find out the winners on January 8 when the 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards airs live on NBC hosted by Jimmy Fallon. The grand dame of the award season, Meryl Streep, will receive the 2017 Cecil B. DeMille Award! So deserving!

"La La Land" Wins Big at 22nd Critics' Choice Awards 


Hosted by T.J. Miller, the 22nd annual Critics' Choice Awards was a night of laughter and music. Held at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, CA, the awards show (which was moved up about a month earlier from its regular first week of January date) is a good Academy Awards predictor. And this year, the big winner was Damien Chazelle's "La La Land" which took home eight awards including Best Picture! Full disclosure, I'm a member of the Broadcast Film Critics Association and I voted for the Critics' Choice Awards, and yes, I voted for "La La Land" for its affecting and memorable homage to Hollywood and dreamers everywhere!

Besides the TV categories, other winners of the evening were Ryan Reynolds and Viola Davis. Ryan Reynolds received the Entertainer of the Year by Entertainment Weekly. The actor, who dedicated his award to Make-A-Wish, returned to the stage to accept the Best Comedy award for "Deadpool."

Viola Davis was honored with the first ever #SeeHer award! Ms. Davis, who is also nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role in "Fences," was given the award because she "embodies the values set forth by the #SeeHer mission, including pushing boundaries on changing stereotypes and her recognition of the importance of accurately portraying women across the entertainment landscape" according to Association of National Advertisers and A&E Network, the organizations behind the award.

Another first of the night is the Most Binge-Worthy Series award which went to Starz's "Outlander."

Here's the complete list of nominees and winners (highlighted) of the 22nd Critics Choice Awards including the TV categories:

I Love Ryan Gosling in “La La Land!” See My Interview with the Actor 


And finally, I was able to tell Ryan Gosling I love him, five times! I saw “La La Land” that much and each time, I could not help but fall in love with the actor. I didn’t think it was possible! Gosling stars as Sebastian in “La La Land,” a struggling jazz musician who falls in love with the struggling actress named Mia, played by the equally delightful Emma Stone! “La La Land” comes out in limited release this Friday and will open wide on Dec. 16th! Be sure to watch it and see why I’m calling “La La Land” my favorite film of the year!
