La La Land has already smashed the record for the most Golden Globes, winning seven prizes last month.

Best Leading Actress nominees are: Amy Adams ("Arrival"), Emily Blunt ("The Girl On The Train"), Emma Stone ("La La Land"), Meryl Streep ("Florence Foster Jenkins") and Natlie Portman ("Jackie").

The dreamy tribute to the heyday of Hollywood musicals also picked up gongs for cinematography and original music, in the ceremony at London's Royal Albert Hall.
