La La Land staked its claim for the Oscars’ biggest prizes by smashing it at the 2017 Golden Globes. The musical-comedy won a record seven Golden Globes including Best Actor gongs for Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, and best director for Damien Chazelle.

But UK talent also enjoyed a good night at the awards ceremony judged by the members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA) with Tom Hiddleston, Olivia Colman and Hugh Laurie picking up acting awards for The Night Manager.

The co-production between the BBC and AMC, a six-part thriller adapted from the John Le Carre novel, was also nominated in the Best Miniseries or TV Film.

Sticking with the British theme, Netflix’s royal drama The Crown won Best TV Drama, beating acclaimed contenders such as Game of Thrones and Stranger Things.

With the Golden Globes seen as a good indication of the leading contenders for the Oscars race, La La Land will go into the film world’s most prestigious awards ceremony as the favourite to take home Best Film.
