After delighting the critics and winning boatloads of awards (albeit one only temporarily), the La La Land juggernaut soldiers on, fueled by praise and undeterred by haters.

The film, a Hollywood story about how brave it is to work in Hollywood, was something of a Technicolor travelogue of iconic LA locations. The city of Los Angeles, powerless against the vanilla charm of A-list movie stars engaging in Gene Kelly cosplay, is heaping yet another honor on the film.

Mayor Eric Garcetti declared today, April 25, 2017, La La Land Day in Los Angeles.

The filmmakers were at City Hall to celebrate no doubt nervously scanning the crowd for an errant Warren Beatty sighting coming to take this all away from them again.

Spectators were treated to a musical show some hundreds of feet in the air, as aerial dancers performed a musical number on the walls of City Hall.

Mayor Eric Garcetti even turned the steps of City Hall into a makeshift Seb’s, getting behind the keys to play with a small jazz combo.
