The accolades keep rolling in.

La La Land was named the New York Film Critics Circle’s best film of the year.

The organization annually names winners in several traditional awards categories, like best actor/actress and best director. It is comprised of critics from newspapers, magazines and some online general-interest publications, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The musical film — which stars Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling as an aspiring actress and a jazz musician, respectively — was also named a Critics’ Choice Awards nominee in multiple categories on Thursday.

With 12 nods at the upcoming ceremony, La La Land will compete in the best picture, best actor, best actress and best director categories, among other things.

The movie also won the people’s choice award at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.

La La Land hits theaters on Dec. 9.
