What are the chances La La Land becomes the first film since Silence of the Lambs in 1992 to win the big 5 categories (Picture, Director, Actor, Actress, Screenplay)?
Obviously Gosling winning would be a massive upset…

No chance. It would have to have upset victories in Screenplay and Actor. That’s never gonna happen.January 19, 2017 at 12:32 pm #1201990932
I’m actually thinking it could snatch screenplay but Gosling’s not winning.January 19, 2017 at 12:43 pm #1201990938
I’m not really a huge movie fan (I’m more into music) however LA LA land was horrible Emma Watson is trash Rion gasling is racist.January 19, 2017 at 1:07 pm #1201990943
^ Seems legit.January 19, 2017 at 1:42 pm #1201990954
Glad we have an admitted non-movie fan chiming in on what is a good film. I am changing my predictions….LOLJanuary 19, 2017 at 1:54 pm #1201990957

I mean I don’t really think you have to be a huge movie fan to know good acting and a good story line unfortunately La la land had none of those things just a basic corny movie for middle age white women.January 19, 2017 at 1:59 pm #1201990959
Why is poor Emma Watson being dragged into this brouhaha? Has Emma Stone soured you on all Emmas? How do you feel about Emma Roberts? Or Emma Greenwell?January 19, 2017 at 2:05 pm #1201990966
Lololol. No way is it winning Actor. Shouldn’t win Screenplay at all.January 19, 2017 at 2:06 pm #1201990967
Not gonna happen.
But yeah, the possibility of it taking screenplay isn’t that far fetched I suppose. Globes are one thing but I’m more impressed by it also getting BFCA’s screenplay award, which proves that it is something that a large group of people can agree upon and can see it as something more than a product of a great vision and a joyful gimmick.
And maybe industry as a whole isn’t so above awarding something like that either. I’m surprised to be reminded that The Artist won BAFTA Screenplay.January 19, 2017 at 2:11 pm #1201990971
Screenplay is possible (unfortunately). Actor isn’t going to happen (fortunately).January 19, 2017 at 2:33 pm #1201990983
Pretty much no chance because it will not win actor. Screenplay probably about 50/50 at this time and actress more likely than not but not certain. Picture and director are for sure.January 19, 2017 at 2:45 pm #1201990989
Odds are impossible. Chazelle’s a shoe in for director, Emma can win actress, and the film is a huge contender for best picture (for good reason), but neither actor nor screenplay are happening (for good reason).
As to Silence of the Lambs, 1991 seemed like a weak year. Other than Beauty and the Beast (an animated film) and Thelma and Louise (which was not nominated for best picture), no other film has seemed to live the test of time.January 19, 2017 at 3:02 pm #1201990992
I think the chances of it winning original screenplay cannot be underestimated. The original screenplay category is very weak this year (Zootopia may be the 5th nomination) so la la really could prevail here. If Manchester loses a little more momentum and La La Land gets caught up in “sweep” voting, it is not hard to see it winning screenplay. People who are passionate about La La are very passionate about it and we really have not seen that with Manchester. La La’s screenplay can easily ride that wave of passion in a weak category to a screenplay win.
I agree though that actor is not happening.
