Oh, dear. That was a plot twist worthy of ... well ... Hollywood.

"La La Land" is still a gorgeous visual and musical and conceptual feature-length riff on jazz and life and chance meetings and go-everywhere story arcs and plot driving song driving plot and reverent visual quotes of classic musicals and everything that pretty much fills me with glee and makes me sit up and watch so I don't miss a single dance step or leitmotif or fleeting exterior shot or subtle emotion on a gorgeous closeup. It's filled with heart, it grabbed my heart and it will forever be my 2017 best picture winner.
