“La La Land” won big at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday, according to USA Today.

The musical won seven awards including best actor for Ryan Gosling and best actress for Emma Stone.

The Hollywood-themed musical also won best musical at the 74th Golden Globe Awards.

The ceremony was hosted by “The Tonight Show’s” Jimmy Fallon.

Fallon kicked off the show with a big, musical tribute to “La La Land,” according to E! News.

Perhaps the best part of Fallon’s opening was a rap by “Stranger Things” star Millie Bobby Brown that the character, Barb, who died on the show, was actually alive.

Other big winners were “Moonlight” for best picture, and in TV categories “The Crown” and “Atlanta” also did well, according to the New York Times.

Fisher, Reynolds honored

The Golden Globes also broke their “no-memorial” rule and honored Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds with a montage of their work, according to USA Today.

Fisher’s brother, Todd, thanked the Globes via Twitter “for taking a moment and honoring my girls.”

Meryl Streep, who was honored with the Cecil B. DeMille award, took a moment in her speech to honor Fisher, who wrote Streep’s 1990 film “Postcards from the Edge.”

Streep closed out her speech with this, “As my friend Princes Leia told me, ‘Take your broken heart, make it into art.’”

Carey still calls sabotage

A week after her disastrous performance on “Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Year,” Mariah Carey still says she was sabotaged by the show’s producers, according to The Washington Post.

On Sunday, she tweeted a audio recording of herself where she addresses the controversy.

In the recording, she says, “… I want everyone to know that I came to New Year’s Eve in New York in great spirits and was looking forward to a celebratory moment with the world. It’s a shame that we were put into the hands of a production team with technical issues who chose to capitalize on circumstances beyond our control.”

Dick Clark Productions still maintains that Carey’s assertions are “absurd.” However, the company said technical errors do happen on live television but still found the company had no involvement in “the challenges associated with Ms. Carey’s New Year’s Eve performance.”
