Going into the 2017 Golden Globes, La La Land had the most nominations of any other film with seven, followed by Moonlight with six nominations and Manchester-by-the-Sea with five nominations. By the end of Sunday night, La La Land had made history by winning all seven of the awards it was nominated for, taking the most wins for any film in Golden Globes history.

La La Land swept the Globes winning Best Picture Comedy or Musical, filmmaker Damien Chazelle winning Best Director and Best Screenplay, Ryan Goslilng and Emma Stone winning Best Actor and Best Actress respectively, and Justin Hurwitz winning Best Original Score and Best Original Song for “City of Stars.”

Producers Fred Berger and Marc Platt accepted the award for Best Picture Comedy or Musical. “Thank you to Damien for reminding us of the magic and the power of cinema,” said Platt. “To make us feel not through cynicism or irony, but with unbridled joy and passion, to dream more urgently, to live more fervently and to love more deeply.”

La La Land was the first movie to win every major Golden Globe it was nominated for since One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest in 1976 and Midnight in 1979, both had six wins each.
