Will Musicals See a ‘La La Land’ Boost?

9 February 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The rap on musicals used to be “audiences don’t want to see people breaking into song.” Now that “La La Land” has charmed audiences by doing just that, what does it mean for the future of live-action screen musicals?

“Whatever musicals come next will have to be good. That’s the test,” says Justin Paul, one of the Oscar-nominated lyricists for “La La Land.” “I have to believe that other studios, other producers, would only be encouraged by the impact of ‘La La Land,’ both critically and at the box office.”

Adds fellow “La La Land” lyricist Benj Pasek: “We feel like our generation has been so primed for musical content. We grew up with the resurgence of Disney animation and all that followed from that. In hindsight, it makes sense that people would be receptive; so many of us grew up with our first stories being told through song. »

The Crown: How John Lithgow Played Winston Churchill, a Man Nearly a Foot Shorter Than Him

30 January 2017 11:25 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

At Sunday night's SAG Awards, both John Lithgow and Claire Foy joined the winners list for their work on The Crown; the two took respective wins for outstanding male and female actor in a drama series. After giving their acceptance speeches, the pair took on the press room together for a Q&A. One journalist asked how Lithgow, at a staggering 6'4" in height, played the historically small Winston Churchill, who, according to his biography, was 5'6". As it turns out, Lithgow rehearsed for nearly 10 full days before he asked Stephen Daldry, one of the series directors, what they were going to do about the 10-inch disparity. Surprisingly, they really didn't need to do much; but there is one of many small details you can look out for. "The only accommodation they made for my height," Lithgow revealed, "was to make the Downing Street door about six inches taller than it actually is. »

Creator Peter Morgan accepted the award, but said it's "ridiculous i'm called a creator on this," and deemed it a "bogus title," because the cast and crew are his co-creators. Executive producer Stephen Daldry also spoke and made sure to thank the ensemble cast, but was abruptly played off by loud music. He was able »

Golden Globes 2017: ‘La La Land’ wins best musical/comedy

8 January 2017 12:00 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Lionsgate’s musical took the best musical or comedy award at the 74th awards show on Sunday night.

Moments earlier, Emma Stone, who kicked off awards season with the Coppa Volpi win in Venice last autumn, had been named best actress in a musical or comedy for her role in the film. Stone dedicated her win to aspiring actors around the world.

La La Land converted all seven of its nominations on the night. Shortly before Stone’s award, writer-director Damien Chazelle picked up the screenplay prize following his earlier win for best director.

Collecting the directing prize earlier in the night, Chazelle thanked his producers “for not blanching at what must have seemed like an utterly insane proposition.”

La La Land’s Ryan Gosling won best performance by an actor in a motion picture - musical or comedy and star struck a sober note as he accepted his award.
