Review

January, 23rd 2017
It has already won 36 various prizes (including 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th places) and has other 53 nominations and running-ups – maybe this musical film will be awarded by Oscar 2017. If to simply list all the contests and organization that gave it accolades such as victory or nomination, they will be as follows:
African-American Film Critics Association, American Film Institute, Boston Online Film Critics Association, Boston Society of Film Critics, Chicago Film Critics Association, Critics' Choice Awards, Dallas-Fort Worth Film Critics Association, Golden Globe Awards, Hamptons International Film Festival, Hollywood Film Awards, Hollywood Music in Media Awards, Los Angeles Film Critics Association, National Board of Review, New York Film Critics Circle, New York Film Critics Online, Palm Springs International Film Festival, San Diego Film Critics Society, San Francisco Film Critics Circle, Santa Barbara International Film Festival, Satellite Awards, St. Louis Gateway Film Critics Association, Toronto Film Critics Association, Toronto International Film Festival, Venice Film Festival, Washington D.C. Area Film Critics Association.
It is a song about acting career and actors auditions that many people pass through in their lives. Maybe this film is so adorable by all the associations, organizations and all kind of authorities who grant some victories, prices, etcetera is because it has many songs about the world of show business. Along with that the film doesn't show this business as the rotten wasteland (as there is a tendency of the latest years), but it has a huge flag of naivety, gratefulness, and glamour – basically, all those things that attract viewers to the world of Hollywood. It is because of such popularization + romanticizing of entire image of showbiz this film was bulged out with so many awards that we have already listed above.
In this particular song, the hero of Emma Stone sings about how she's going through the audition. She says that if you're the one that must be found for a particular role, you will be found. You only need to fit the image of the hero of the upcoming movie and be in the fast line. You are so lucky if you're going into the fast line because it is only for big stars and people whose faces are famous. So this is another underlining of the essence of the show business. If you're nobody – you have to wait in the long queue. But if you have already reached your point of success where your face is famous from films or from the commercial billboards at least, on every audition that is arranged in the Hollywood, you will be either invited either will wait in the fast line.
After absolutely invigorating music, there is downing in the mood closer to the third verse. It is sung seems as without hope at all. But in the third minute starts the instrumental break, that evolves from the gloomy mood to the uplifting. It becomes clear that the main heroine doesn't lose hope to become a person who will eventually stand in this fast line. It's not to be said that the essential meaning of her life boils down to her participation in the movies and becoming the famous actress as the narration of this film distinctively let us know, but also that love is the main thing in her life, though, of course, she wants to realize oneself in this life.

Someone In The Crowd Song Lyrics


[Tracy:]
You got the invitation
[Alexis:]
You got the right address
[Tracy:]
You need some medication?
[Caitlin:]
The answer's always yes
[Tracy:]
A little chance encounter
Could be the one you've waited for
[Alexis, Caitlin & Tracy:]
Just squeeze a bit more
[Alexis:]
Tonight we're on a mission
Tonight's the casting call
[Caitlin:]
If this is the real audition
[Mia:]
Oh, God, help us all
[Tracy:]
You make the right impression
Then ev'rybody knows your name
[Alexis & Caitlin:]
We're in the fast lane
[Alexis:]
Someone in the crowd
Could be the one you need to know
The one to fin'lly lift you off the ground
[Tracy:]
Someone in the crowd could
Take you where you wanna go
If you're the someone ready to be found
[Alexis:]
The someone ready to be found
[Caitlin & Tracy:]
Do what you need to do
'Til they discover you
[Alexis, Caitlin & Tracy:]
And make you more than who
You're seeing now
So with the stars aligned
[Mia:]
I think I'll stay behind
[Alexis, Caitlin & Tracy:]
You've got to go and find
[Caitlin:]
That someone in the crowd
[All:]
That someone in the crowd
[Mia:]
Is someone in the crowd the only thing you really see?
Watching while the world keeps spinning 'round?
Somewhere there's a place where I find who I'm gonna be
A somewhere that's just waiting to be found
[All:]
Someone in the crowd could be the one you need to know
The someone who could lift you off the ground
Someone in the crowd could take you where you wanna go
Someone in the crowd could make you
Someone in the crowd could take you
Flying off the ground
If you're someone ready to be found
