“La La Land” overwhelmed its competitors Monday in the race for the Golden Globe Awards, walking away with seven nominations, including best comedy or musical, best actor and actress in a comedy or musical and best director.

The musical “dramady” is getting rave reviews and is probably a favorite for the Oscars after its success in the Golden Globes nomination race.

The film also dominated Sunday night’s Critics’ Choice Awards.

“La La Land” is a bitter-sweet story about the romance between a jazz piano player (Ryan Gosling) and a wannabe actress (Emma Stone).

Director Damien Chazelle is 31 and is now a favorite not only for the Golden Globes, but also for the Oscar for best director.

But the musical wasn’t the only film getting attention. “Moonlight,” a drama about a gay black man in Miami going through life’s challenges at three points in his life. That movie had six Golden Globe nominations.

Also receiving numerous nominations were “Manchester By The Sea,” “Lion” and “Florence Foster Jenkins” starring Meryl Streep.
