There are always a few Oscar favorites by the time December rolls around, and right now it seems that writer/director Damien Chazelle‘s musical La La Land is in the lead of the pack.

The film stars Emma Stone as an aspiring actress, and also features J.K. Simmons, who won an Oscar for Chazelle’s last film, Whiplash. Last month the two actors sat for a conversation for the SAG-AFTRA Foundation moderated by Rebecca Ford of The Hollywood Reporter. The pair spoke about the challenges of working on a musical and working with Chazelle on his dream project.
