"We Give It Back to You the (Ordinary?) People"?

Sad, but kind of cosmically ironic that actress Mary Tyler Moore passes away the week Trump takes over in the White House and just after the Oscar nominations have been released to the ordinary people.
Oscar nominations: La La Land scores big

And the John Legend produced movie 'La La Land' picks up 14 nominations for the night.
Choreographer Mandy
Moore explained how she put together the opening scene in the movie "La La Land."
It's a scene Los Angeles residents can relate to - gridlock. 

But in the movie, it looks like a lot of fun: a dance-filled traffic jam.
The musical number was months in the making, and the most complicated ever undertaken by the
Emmy-winning choreographer.
"The opening scene, traffic, was - I'm going to call it
#panicattack," Moore said.
Dozens of cars, 30 professional dancers and more than 100 extras were part of the scene. 

A lot was required to perfect the memorable "La La Land" freeway routine.
Damien Chazelle and Moore went all out on the scene. 
Moore said she still gets goosebumps thinking about what they were able to pull off."
