'La La Land' earns a record of 14 Oscar nominations

Chazelle had camped for "old L.A." locations that were in ruins or were perhaps razed

Chazelle was unable to produce the film for years since no studio was willing to finance an original contemporary musical with no familiar songs to build off a pre-existing fan base

As a drummer himself, Damien Chazelle has a strong predilection for musical films and had written the screenplay for La La Land during a period in his life when the movie industry seemed out of reach

While shooting Sebastian and Mia's first dance together, Stone had tumbled over the back of a bench, but picked right up and kept on going with the scene

Damien Chazelle had spent nearly a year editing the film with editor Tom Cross as they focused mainly on getting the tone just right which was the main focus for everyone working on the film.

La La Land was one of the movies presented in the Toronto International Film Festival 2016 list

Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone had previously worked together in the movies - Crazy, Stupid, Love. and Gangster Squad.

Emma Watson had turned down the role of Mia due to scheduling conflicts with Beauty and the Beast.

Miles Teller was dropped from the project in favor of Ryan Gosling, while Emma Watson had dropped out to pursue other projects.

The movie had taken a total of 42 days to complete shooting, finishing in mid-September 2015.
