Ryan Gosling & Emma Stone
Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone are the main actors in the musical "La La Land". While the Canadian actor is also a musician and composer, Emma Stone had never sung a song before her highly acclaimed performance in this film event, which won seven Golden Globes and six Oscars. On the other hand, Ryan Gosling, who is mainly known for his acting skills, is also a passionate musician and the leader of the rock group "Dead Man's Bones", in which he sings and plays guitar and piano since 2007. For the purposes of the film, the two actors were not afraid to take singing lessons and Ryan Gosling even followed an intensive training of several months to perfect his piano technique. In the end, they didn't use understudies to play the roles of a singer-actress and a jazz pianist, so they are the ones we hear in the titles "City of Stars" and "A lovely night". This is not the first time the Canadian actor has done such a feat. In 2011, in the film "Blue Valentine", he had already revealed his singing skills by humming "You Always Hurt the One You Love" by the Mills Brothers. The performance of the two actors was awarded an Oscar for Best Actress and a Golden Globe for Best Actor, while the composer of the soundtrack, Justin Hurwitz, won five awards in the Best Song and Best Film Music category.
