The film, which stars Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, beat the previous record for most Golden Globes won by a single film, held by One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975) and Midnight Express (1978), which garnered six shiny statues each.

Directed by Damien Chazelle, the box-office hit won in each category for which it was nominated, including Best Motion Picture in a Musical or Comedy.

Chazelle won two awards for directing and screenplay. Gosling and Stone proudly accepted their awards for best actor and actress in a Musical or Comedy, respectively.
