A New Golden Age? LA LA LAND Presents an In-Depth Look at a Decade of Movie Musicals


The 1940s-60s is widely considered to be a Golden Age of movie musicals. With dynamic stars like Gene Kelly, Judy Garland, Shirley Jones, Cyd Charisse and Fred Astaire lighting up the big screen time and time again, the years that followed the second World War undoubtedly brought us some of our most beloved classics.

In 2002, a blockbuster called Chicago proved that the movie musical could be not only a commercial and critical success, but cool again. Since then, the world has seen a resurgence in a genre that was long-considered dead, bringing an American tradition back to the forefront of popular culture.

This holiday season, the movie musical is back in full force with the critically-acclaimed La La Land, featuring Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling. With the arrival of perhaps the best movie musical in decades, we're bringing you an in-depth timeline of the past ten years in movie musicals. Are we in a second Golden Age? Decide for yourself!
