But "Moonlight" director Barry Jenkins also has the acclaim, and is right on Chazelle's tracks. Who deserves to win Best Director at the Golden Globes? 🎥

There's no great film without good direction. And that's why the Best Director category at the Golden Globes holds great significance. Not only is it one of the top categories at the Golden Globes, but the category (and the DGA Awards) will arguably determine who wins the Oscar for Best Director.

Chazelle is the frontrunner for his direction of "La La Land." The film itself is a frontrunner in many of the top categories—including Best Picture (Musical or Comedy), Best Actor (Musical or Comedy) and Best Actress (Musical or Comedy). As both writer and director of the musical, Chazelle is feeling the love and has the award nods to back it up.

But don't count out Jenkins! "Moonlight" is one of the most praised dramatic films of 2016. Like Chazelle—he's also nominated for Best Screenplay for writing the drama. Jenkins has not only won praise, but he's already won many critic awards for his direction. So maybe Chazelle isn't a lock to win.
