Golden Globe awards have been won and having brought in $100 million at the box office and climbing up the US charts with a killer soundtrack, La La Land continues to soar as the best film of 2016. The hype from the press and social media suggested that viewers would be getting something original from Hollywood. The idea of our favourite heartthrob, Ryan Gosling, and American sweetheart, Emma Stone, taking us on a brightly-lit journey of hope, love, song, dance and tears had people eagerly reserving tickets to see it on the first night it was released. Yet rather than satisfaction, mixed opinions abound – not everyone was reeling as much as the critics who gave it a five-star rating.
Stunning, amazing, surreal, jaw-dropping, informative, heart-rending, sobering & utterly wonderful. Thank you @BBCEarth, #DavidAttenborough & all involved in producing the amazing #BluePlanet2. Clear your shelves - you're going to need a LOT of room for all the awards. Retweeted by Mary Grace Nguyen
