IT EARNED six Oscars on its way to stealing hearts worldwide and grossing US$440 million (RM1.94 billion) but La La Land is perhaps doomed to be remembered for the prize it didn't win. Director Damien Chazelle and his team hugged as they picked up best picture at February's Academy Awards, but it quickly became clear that the wrong movie had been announced. As one of the worst mix-ups in Oscars history played out live to the world, the media noted one unusual reaction among a sea of perplexed faces: Ryan Gosling was struggling to control his laughter. The star's giggles quickly went viral and he has since put it down to delight for the cast and crew of real winner Moonlight, and relief that the sudden panic wasn't caused by something more serious. But celebrated choreographer Mandy Moore, who taught Gosling and co-star Emma Stone to dance for the movie, thinks he was just embarrassed.

But if every cloud has a silver lining, this one might be called golden: The Emma Stone-Ryan Gosling musical, which did win six Oscars, has been racking up box office numbers remarkable for a musicalnearly $417 million globally so far, according to comScore, a marketing analytics firm — and even more for an original one with no previously known songs or story. Damien Chazelle's eye-popping, toe-tapping creation ranks third in all live-action film musicals, behind Mamma Mia! (2008) and Les Miserables (2012), neither of them original. "That's big-time money," said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at comScore. "At times, the musical genre has been marginalized or not taken seriously. But this is serious business." 'Beauty' blockbuster expected It's enough to make a musical fan break into sudden, joyful song, perhaps on the way to the multiplex, where this weekend Emma Watson's Beauty and the Beast is expected to have a huge, $120 million-style opening.
