Award in the United States‘La La Land’ triumphs at the Golden Globes
The musical “La La Land” was the big winner of the Golden Globes. The film “Elle” was crowned best foreign language film and Isabelle Huppert best actress.
It’s a surprise victory for Isabelle Huppert in particular against Natalie Portman, given favorite by the forecasters for her incarnation of Jackie Kennedy in “Jackie”. “Thank you for allowing me to win here in America in a French film directed by a Dutch director,” said the legendary 63-year-old actress in gray lamé. Moved, seeming to lose her voice at times, she added: ‘Don’t expect cinema to put up walls and borders’, and thanked director Paul Verhoeven for allowing her to ‘be herself’ .
In the sulphurous “Elle”, Isabelle Huppert embodies a raped woman seeking to unmask her attacker and who embarks on a game of masochistic seduction with him. She has already reaped an armful of awards in the United States for this extraordinary, critically acclaimed performance and can now hope for an Oscar nomination. On receiving the prize for best foreign language film, Paul Verhoeven warmly thanked his interpreter, “his audacity”, his “talent”, his “authenticity”, concluding with a triple: “I love you”.
Record for “La La Land”
Romance between an aspiring actress and a musician, “La La Land” was the favorite of the evening with seven nominations. She won them all, setting an award record for a film: best comedy, best screenplay, best director for her writer-director Damien Chazelle, best original music and song. Its two interpreters Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, who sing, dance and tap dance in the most beautiful places in Los Angeles were also awarded.
Ryan Gosling had to work for months to play the piano scenes himself in the film in which he plays a jazz musician. Damien Chazelle thanked his producers for “having bet on this film” and “believing that there is an audience for a film like this”. The composer of the music Justin Hurwitz, and those of the song “City of Stars”, interpreted by Ryan Gosling, were also awarded for music that makes its actors waltz in the stars or in traffic jams.
Aaron Taylor-Johnson for “Nocturnal Animals” and Viola Davis for “Fences”, adaptation of a play, were crowned best supporting roles in cinema. “Moonlight,” about a young gay black boy growing up with a drug-addicted mother, won the Globe for Best Drama Picture and Casey Affleck won Best Dramatic Actor for “Manchester by the Sea.” In television, the series “American Crime Story: The People vs OJ Simpson”, that on an arms trafficker “The Night Manager” and on the Queen of England “The Crown” have won several awards each.
